The Ohio State football team returns to No. 1 in the Big Ten power rankings after a dominating win over “that team up north”.
The Ohio State football team took 12 games to put it all together and finally showed everyone what this team can achieve. He won’t say it, but Urban Meyer just told all his critics to eat crow.
The Buckeyes thoroughly dismantled the Wolverines. They took away their will and soul, and sent them back to Ann Arbor demoralized.
Against Michigan’s No. 1 defense that was allowing 234.8 yards-per-game and 13.5 points-per-game, Ohio State put up 567 yards and 62 points, the latter being the most ever by the Buckeyes against the Wolverines.
Criticized all season, the defense rose to the challenge. I would argue that outside of a few questionable calls and a sloppy turnover by Demario McCall, Michigan would have had 17 points.
The Buckeyes must quickly turn their attention to the Northwestern Wildcats and the Big Ten Championship Game. A solid win should get them into the playoff.
It will be interesting to see how the College Football Playoff Committee ranks Ohio State on Tuesday.
I think the Buckeyes should be No. 5 ahead of the Oklahoma Sooners. The Big Ten is 3-1 against the Big 12 with wins over Texas, Iowa State and TCU. That’s the deciding factor since you can’t tell by an eye test.
Let’s recap the rest of the Big Ten.
Trophy week did not disappoint.
