Breaks go Buckeyes' way

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Ohio State made up for a shoddy day offensively by forcing five turnovers, and Mike Nugent tied a school record with five field goals to give the ninth-ranked Buckeyes a 22-14 victory over North Carolina State yesterday. The Buckeyes (3-0) managed only 137 yards of offense -- 35 coming on their first drive -- and converted only two of 16 chances on third down. Lydell Ross carried 25 times for 51 yards, and Justin Zwick finished 10 of 21 for another 73.It was barely enough, thanks to a bevy of mistakes by N.C. State (1-1), including three interceptions by Jay Davis, and the strong leg of Nugent, who tied Bob Atha's five field goals in 1981 against Indiana.
