Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Braxton Miller threw a pair of touchdown passes and Carlos Hyde rushed for two scores as fourth-ranked Ohio State remained unbeaten under Urban Meyer with a 34-24 win over Iowa in Big Ten action Saturday. Miller, who missed two games and most of a third with a knee injury, efficiently moved the Ohio State (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) offense, completing 22- of-27 passes for 222 yards. He also carried 18 times for 102 yards, while Hyde rushed 24 times for 149. "I had a knee injury and set me back a little bit, but felt pretty good out there," said Miller. "And the O line did a bell of a job and coaching and it showed on the field." Devin Smith and Corey Brown both had touchdown receptions for the Buckeyes, who extended the nations longest winning streak to 19 games. Iowa (4-3, 1-2) dropped its fifth straight game to OSU as Jake Rudock passed for 245 yards and three scores. Jake Duzey, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Kevonte Martin-Manley caught touchdown passes. Damon Bullock and Mark Weisman both rushed 10 times for 56 and 52 yards, respectively. The Hawkeyes controlled clock in the first half and led 17-10 at intermission, but Ohio State came out of the locker room and dominated the final 30 minutes, picking up 22 first downs to Iowas six. "You dont get prizes for playing a good first half," said Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz. "You have to play the full 60 minutes. I think we realize its a matter of what do we have to do to be in a better situation the next time we get this chance." OSU scored a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter to gain its first lead of the game. Hydes 1-yard touchdown plunge on the opening drive of the second half tied the score, and after an Iowa punt, Miller found Smith out of the backfield for a 14-yard score. Unfazed facing a 1st-and-20 from his own 15 moments later, Rudock connected with Duzey down the right sideline. The tight end reached out and made the catch before outrunning two defenders for an 85-yard score, Iowas longest this season. The Buckeyes went back in front, 31-24, early in the fourth quarter. On 3rd- and-7 from the Iowa 28, Miller kept the drive alive with his feet, sprinting for a 9-yard gain after the pocket collapsed and he reversed field back to his left. Hyde broke a trio of tackles, stayed on his feet and scored a play later from 19 yards out. "When hes running, Im always expecting a big play," Hyde said about his dynamic quarterback. "He can make something out of nothing. He is a playmaker." Drew Basils 25-yard kick with 5:50 left in the game resulted in the final margin. Iowa struck first when Rudock faked a hand-off from the Ohio State 2 and flung a pass to the back of the end zone, where Fiedorowicz made a diving touchdown reception. Rudock was 5-for-5 for 50 yards on the 12-play scoring march. Basil kicked a 27-yard field goal with 4:00 minutes left in the first quarter to put OSU on the board. The Buckeyes were dealt a major blow late in the first when 2012 Thorpe Award semifinalist Bradley Roby, who led the nation with 19 passes defended a season ago, became the second player in the Big Ten this season to get ejected for targeting. Rudock found Fiedorowicz for an 11-yard pickup when Roby led with his helmet and brought down the defenseless receiver. Mike Meyer capped the drive with a short field goal with seven seconds left in the quarter to spot the Hawkeyes a 10-3 advantage. Ohio State tied the score minutes later, and the home crowd, which had been quiet since Robys ejection, came to life as Miller found a wide-open Brown down the field for a 58-yard touchdown. Iowa continued to burn clock with a 15-play scoring drive on its ensuing touch. Rudock methodically marched his offense down the field, picking up four third-down conversions which included a 6-yard touchdown to Martin-Manley in the back of the end zone.

Air Max Free Shipping . -- Oakland Athletics starting pitchers Jarrod Parker and A.LONDON -- Jose Mourinho has hit out at Andre Villas-Boas for revealing their once strong personal and professional relationship has broken down. On the eve of their first clash as coaches, when Mourinhos Chelsea visits Villas-Boas Tottenham in the English Premier League on Saturday, the latter admitted he no longer had a relationship with his one-time mentor and was not losing sleep over it. But Mourinho wasnt impressed with Villas-Boas admitting it in public. "I dont describe (the relationship), because Im not a kid to discuss relationships with the media," Mourinho said on Friday. "Its a personal thing. I dont care what he says. Im not here to comment on what he says. Im not interested." Villas-Boas worked under Mourinho as a scout at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan before deciding to go his own way after being denied a more senior role. Their bond soured after Villas-Boas left Mourinho to take over Portugese team Academica. After winning an impressive treble in charge at Porto, Villas-Boas became coach at Chelsea and moved on to Tottenham. "We had a great personal and professional relationship before that we dont have now," he said. "I dont think we need explanations but our relationship broke down. I think we have the mutual respect for each other and we understand what weve been thhrough cannot just disappear, but its not like it was before.dddddddddddd" Villas-Boas and Mourinho both cite the late Bobby Robson as having a strong influence on their coaching careers while the Englishman was manager at Porto from 1994-96. Mourinho was Robsons interpreter at the club while Villas-Boas lived in the same block and famously once lectured the new manager on his tactics and player selection. Villas-Boas claimed connection with Robson seemed, however, to jar with Mourinho. When asked whether the "spirit" of Robson would be at White Hart Lane this weekend the Chelsea manager said, "Why? Where (did) he work with Andre?" Villas-Boas enters Saturdays game with the upper hand, with home advantage and a two-point lead over Chelsea in the standings. Spurs have won eight of their first nine games this season, conceding just one goal. "This game wont have any significant impact," Villas-Boas said. "Its normally in the games against the other teams that can affect your position a little more dramatically. This is a big clash between two teams that competed hard for the Champions League spots last season." He added, "I think we could have the tightest Premier League in years. We just have to continue getting the most amount of points as possible." ' ' '
