COLUMBUS — Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor will undergo surgery on his right foot today, to stabilize a few ligaments he injured late in Tuesday night's Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas.

The surgery shouldn't affect his 2011 season, though, mostly due to the fact that he will miss the first five games after being suspended by the NCAA for receiving improper benefits.

Pryor finished Tuesday night's win as the game's Most Valuable Player, after recording 336 total yards and two touchdown passes in the 31-26 victory.
