Ohio State is coming off of a dominant victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, a 62-3 bruising at Ohio Stadium. As a result, the Buckeyes come in this week at No. 5 in the latest Coaches Poll, and No. 6 in the AP Poll.

The Buckeyes came out and showed everybody the reason why there was so much excitement after the first four weeks of the season. The passing game was much better than it had been in more recent weeks, and the defense was on point as always.

Ohio State now has a pair of road trips to Maryland and Michigan State, before facing off against Michigan in what will be the biggest game between the two rivals since the “Game of the Century” back in 2006.
