Pryor leads Bucks past Oregon 26-17 in Rose Bowl

By  | 

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Ohio State's bowl woes are over, thanks
to a sturdy defense and a quarterback who finally played up to his
enormous potential.

Terrelle Pryor passed for a season-high 266 yards and two
touchdowns, rushed for 72 more and threw a 17-yard scoring pass to
DeVier Posey with 7:02 to play, ending the No. 8 Buckeyes'
three-game BCS skid with a 26-17 victory over No. 7 Oregon in the
Rose Bowl on Friday.

Posey had eight catches for 101 yards, and Brandon Saine caught
an early TD pass for the Buckeyes (11-2), who put together a
remarkably fluid offensive performance in their first trip to
Pasadena since 1997.
