Buckeyes resort to trickery on PATs vs. Buffalo

COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - Urban Meyer shook up things on conversions early in No. 2 Ohio State’s game against Buffalo on Saturday.

After Braxton Miller threw a 47-yard TD pass to Devin Smith on the Buckeyes’ first possession, Ohio State came out in an unbalanced line. Most of the players were flanked to the left with two receivers slotted to the right and the longsnapper, holder and kicker in the middle. Holder Kenny Guiton kept for the two-point conversion.

Miller then hit Chris Fields on a 7-yard score and this time Guiton passed to Jordan Hall behind a group of blockers to the left and he scored easily.

A crowd of more than 100,000 at Ohio Stadium was disappointed when the Buckeyes kicked to take a 23-0 lead after their third touchdown.
