COLUMBUS, Ohio - The backdrop is set to change this weekend but the Buckeyes are hoping that the outcome is the same with the 4-0 Buckeyes making the trip to Champaign (Ill.) to take on the Fighting Illini.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is coming off a career day against Eastern Michigan with six touchdowns to his credit including four via the air, one via the ground and one via a catch. Needless to say the legend of Pryor continues to grow around Columbus as Pryor gets older and more mature as a leader of the team.
Last week there was a tense moment when Pryor took a hit low during his first touchdown pass to Dane Sanzenbacher when a block appeared to be missed and an EMU defender was able to have a relatively unobstructed shot at the Ohio State quarterback.
But things may not be as they seem and on Wednesday Pryor met with the local media to explain what really happened during the play. That was one of many topics that Pryor talked about as well as what he expects from the Illinois defense as the Buckeyes look to open the Big Ten season on the road.
