Cal Vs. Ohio State: Buckeyes Lead Golden Bears At Halftime, 20-7

The Ohio State Buckeyes jumped out to a 20-7 halftime lead against the California Golden Bears. Braxton Miller rushed for a 55-yard touchdown in the first quarter, which capped what was only a three-play, 61-yard drive for the Buckeyes.

That was just before the five-minute mark and the scoring opened up from there. Cal responded with a touchdown drive of its own. Quarterback Zach Maynard connected with Chris Harper for a 19-yard touchdown toss on a screen.

Before the quarter was over, Miller and Devin Smith converted a 25-yard, back shoulder touchdown toss to give the Buckeyes their second touchdown within the last five plays from scrimmage.

Jake Stoneburner caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Miller early in the second quarter to give Ohio State a 20-7 advantage.
