COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Coach Urban Meyer knows there could be trouble brewing for his Buckeyes.

After No. 12 Ohio State's 31-15 victory over Central Florida on Saturday, Meyer questioned almost every area of his team -- except for quarterback Braxton Miller.

Yet Meyer knows, heading into preparations for Saturday's game against California, that Miller can't continue to carry the ball so often. The sophomore has 44 carries in two games, for 302 yards.

But there are few other options.

Starting running back Carlos Hyde is out with a sprained knee, and the injured Jordan Hall might not be ready for his season debut.

That leaves Bri'onte Dunn, Rod Smith and a whole lot of questions in the backfield.
