The Ohio State Buckeyes played their first game since their loss against the Penn State Nittany Lions, and came away with a win against the Northwestern Wildcats. The Buckeyes didn’t look great along the way, and after the win, come away with a No. 6 ranking in the Coaches Poll, up two spots from last week. They held the same ranking in the AP Poll.
The Buckeyes will be preparing this week for Nebraska, who got their first loss on the season against Wisconsin. The Big Ten West is now much more interesting than it was before Saturday, and the Buckeyes still hold their destiny in their own hands.
J.T. Barrett and the Ohio State offense will be looking to find some life through the air against the Cornhuskers on Saturday. Hopefully the Bucks can find that moving forward, as we near the tail end of the season.
