WATCH: Urban Meyer reaches into his old Florida playbook
With Urban Meyer again playing multiple quarterbacks as his Ohio State team played Penn State on Saturday night, it only made sense he would go back to his Florida days for a certain play, too.
With the Buckeyes inside the Penn State 10-yard line in the fourth quarter, Meyer called a timeout and dialed up one of the plays that made Tim Tebow famous early in his career with the Gators: The jump pass.
This time it was J.T. Barrett doing the honors. He found Braxton Miller open in the end zone for the Buckeyes’ fourth touchdown of the night.
That made it 31-10 Ohio State, and the Buckeyes later added one more score to close out a 38-10 win over the Nittany Lions, who had won five in a row.
"The offensive staff has been working on that for a while," Meyer said. "J.T. is a great manager. Glad to see Braxton get a play out of that, too, because he’s a run threat out there. And they did pretty good."
