Braxton Miller likely would be in the hunt for a Heisman Trophy had he not missed two games and nearly all of a third early in the season. Still, Miller appears up to speed after completing 22 of 27 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns last week. Oh, he also ran 18 times for 102 yards.

Penn State has had two weeks to try to figure out how Michigan’s Devin Gardner ran circles around them. Now, they have to contain a much better quarterback in Miller.
