[October 20, 2008]  EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Terrelle Pryor showed some of his potential during a spectacular start Saturday that gave No. 12 Ohio State at least a share of first place in the Big Ten.

Pryor ran for a score and threw for another in the first half, helping the Buckeyes build a four-touchdown lead on the way to a 45-7 win Saturday over No. 20 Michigan State.

The freshman quarterback finished 7-of-11 for 116 yards and a TD and had 72 yards rushing on 12 carries, including an 18-yard for a score early in the game. Pryor showed poise and touch when he threw before sitting on the big lead with handoffs. When he ran, Pryor displayed speed and power by running past defenders and stiff-arming some to the ground.
