The Ohio State Buckeyes had some trouble through three quarters, but were able to hold off the Indiana Hoosiers Saturday for a 38-17 win. The win kept the Buckeyes at the No. 2 spot in the latest AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll.
The Buckeyes are down to just two first-place votes in the AP Poll after having six last week. Michigan came in at No. 4 yet again this week, with Wisconsin moving up to No. 8, and Nebraska at No. 10.
Urban Meyer’s team had some trouble in the passing attack. J.T. Barrett had just 93 yards through the air, but windy conditions likely had a lot to do with that.
It was fine, though, as the Buckeyes ground attack more than made up for the lack of passing. Barrett, Mike Weber, and Curtis Samuel combined for 290 rushing yards, with Barrett leading the way at 137.
This upcoming week, the Buckeyes will travel to Madison to face the Wisconsin Badgers, who have had a pretty good year and played Michigan close a couple of weeks ago.
