08:14 AM ET 09.12 | There's a new game in town, though fans in Columbus may not like its premise. It's time to play "Find a Running Back." What would you do if you were Ohio State coach Urban Meyer this week? Here are the facts: Your top tailback is hurt. Starting running back Carlos Hyde, averaging 4.5 yards per carry on 24 rushes this season, is almost certainly out for Saturday's game against Cal after spraining his right MCL in the first half of the win over Central Florida. Meyer said the good news is that Hyde didn't have any swelling, which is a positive sign for the future. The bad news is he's out for now. ... The only sure thing in the running game is quarterback Braxton Miller, who has 44 carries for 302 yards. That's too much. Meyer knows it.
