Coming off one of the worst passing games ever at Ohio State, Luke Fickell says he and his staff will decide after watching practice this week what the balance will be atquarterback.
The decision will be between true freshman Braxton Miller and fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman when the Buckeyes host Colorado on Saturday.
Neither was effective in a Saturday night's 24-6 loss at Miami. They combined to complete just four passes, all to backs, in 18 attempts for only 35 yards with an interception.
Miller also lost a fumble and recovered another. Fickell says no one on the team, including coaches, can afford to look past the game against the Buffaloes.
The Buckeyes, outplayed on both sides of the ball by the Hurricanes, fell out of the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in almost seven years.
Saturday's kickoff between Ohio State and Colorado will take place at 3:30 pm. Next Saturday's game at Ohio Stadium, between Ohio State and Michigan State will also take place at 3:30 pm.
