Buckeyes ground out a tough road win
Follow Noon on Twitter | Rowland | Givler
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The return of Dan Herron came at a much needed time for Luke Fickell and his beleaguered Buckeye squad. Going into this weekend the Bucks were losers of two straight and running the risk of potentially going winless in the month of October. But Herron's return helped spark the Buckeyes with a much needed shot in the arm as the senior running back came back from suspension with a 23 carry, 114 yard outing as the Buckeyes did it on the ground en route to a 17-7 win to knock off the previously unbeaten Illini.
