After missing more than half of Ohio State's season with a sprained knee ligament, Braxton Miller is feeling stronger every day.

That was evidenced by his four touchdown passes in No. 4 Ohio State's 31-24 victory over Wisconsin last week. Heading into a showdown with No. 16 Northwestern on Saturday, the junior says despite missing almost three full games, he's feeling comfortable.

He says he's able to do everything he did before the injury, and is even making plays he never would have considered a year ago.

With the way the Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) are playing — they have the nation's longest winning streak at 17 in a row — Miller also believes that he still isn't out of the race for the Heisman Trophy.
