Urban Meyer's Ohio State Buckeyes enter the home stretch of their 2012 season. The Bucks are two wins away from perfection, but those two stand as arguably their toughest tests to date. Wisconsin looks to add to a regular season that will come to fruition in Indianapolis but in the meantime standing in their way are the perennial Big Ten power from Columbus. Plus, star running back Montee Ball is but two touchdowns away from the being the NCAA's all-time touchdown scored leader in major college football. So there's that. The outstanding lingering question is the wellness of star linebacker Chris Borland. The Big Ten Network's reporting that Borland will start, but how effective he'll be remains to be seen.

On the hardwood, Thad Matta's Ohio State Buckeyes travel to Connecticut for the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off. 0-2 Rhode Island and first year head coach (and long time prep legend) Dan Hurley is their first opponent in the tournament. The Buckeyes look to move to 2-0 (and are favored as such to do so). Whether the team can find offense outside of Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas and if the bigs show up for this one or not remains to be seen.

Below is your GameThread for a jampacked afternoon of Ohio State sports. As per usual we have one rule and one rule alone: pay it forward. If you're here, you likely know it and live it. O-H
