COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - In preparing for its game on Saturday night against No. 21 Nebraska and quarterback Taylor Martinez, Ohio State found the perfect surrogate.
The 12th-ranked Buckeyes didn't have to go far to find someone with Martinez's acceleration, vision, lane-changing speed and knack for lengthy touchdown runs.
He was just across the line of scrimmage.
In a matchup of run-first, pass-later quarterbacks who are closer to Usain Bolt than Dan Marino, Martinez and Ohio State's Braxton Miller will play can-you-top-this before a national television audience and more than 105,000 people at frigid Ohio Stadium.
Both teams put their perfect Big Ten records on the line in a showdown of the conference's two highest ranked teams - and perhaps most dangerous signal-callers.
