Iowa owns 1st half but No. 4 Buckeyes win 34-24

(Continued)

"I didn't have any idea where anybody was so I just kept running," he said. "I wasn't going to look back."

Rudock marveled at how a brawny 6-foot-4, 245-pound sophomore could not only make the catch over his shoulder but also outrun three Ohio State defenders the final 50 yards.

"Duzey's fast. He ran right past (the cornerback)," Rudock said. "They offensive line gave me plenty of time to get the ball out to him."

But the game tilted on two athletic plays by the Buckeyes early in the fourth quarter.

Miller escaped the rush, ran right and then scooted all the way to the left sideline, running maybe 75 yards to gain nine for a first down.

On the next play from the Iowa 19, Hyde took a handoff — the call is 13 dash — and bounced off right tackle. He rumbled to the 7-yard line, where he was hit hard by free safety Tanner Miller, the blow knocking him off balance. He had retreated all the way to the 11 by the time he regained his bearings and turned up the right sideline. Hyde ran to the 3 before vaulting just inside the corner post for the touchdown that put the Buckeyes ahead to stay.

"I've never had a run like that but that play was working all day," the senior tailback said. "The safety came up and hit me. I came out of it and I was still up. I was like, 'Let me try to catch my balance.' Once I did I turned around. ... I was like, 'Man, I haven't even scored yet.' When I saw (wide-out Corey Brown's) block, I just went in for the touchdown."

The game wasn't the same after that.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said his team's problems stemmed mostly from the play of the Hawkeyes.

"I felt we were getting pushed around (in the first half)," he said. "That's a good outfit we beat."

The Hawkeyes, however, couldn't come up with a big play when needed down the stretch.

"The second half was just a matter of stopping their drives," Ferentz said. "We couldn't get them out of rhythm."
