With Hyde and Miller returning to No. 4 Ohio State's backfield, Meyer must juggle playing time

Urban Meyer will be part coach and part traffic cop this weekend when No. 4 Ohio State meets overmatched Florida A&M.

In addition to formulating a game plan, calling plays and winning a game, he'll try to keep everyone busy and happy in the crowded offensive backfield.

Not only is quarterback Braxton Miller expected to return from missing most of the last two games with a sprained knee ligament, vying with stellar fill-in Kenny Guiton, but Carlos Hyde comes back from a three-game suspension to join the group of ball carriers.

Hyde was the unbeaten Buckeyes' leading scorer and second-leading rusher a year ago. Now he'll be battling Jordan Hall and others for carries as Meyer tries to sort out an abundance of riches.
