Spencer Not Afraid of 'Bama
By Rob Ogden
With the Buckeyes off this past weekend, junior receiver Evan Spencer had the chance to watch a few of the nation's other top teams, and wasn't shy when asked of his opinion of them Monday.
"I'm a little biased, but I think we'd wipe the field with both of them," Spencer said with a laugh, referring to No. 1 Alabama and "whoever else."
Spencer added that his opinion was probably just his bias coming through.

Along with Alabama's 38-17 win over LSU Saturday, Spencer said he also watched No. 5 Stanford knock off then-No. 3 Oregon Thursday night.
Spencer admitted the Stanford win was a big one for the Buckeyes' BCS hopes.
"I was the biggest Cardinal fan for three hours," he said. "We needed a little bit of help, but at the same time, we still gotta take care of our business. We gotta go out there and show them why we're one of the best offenses in the country and show them why we're one of the best defenses in the country and why we have the best kicking game in the country."
As a result of Oregon's loss, the Buckeyes are ranked No. 3 in the latest BCS poll, released Sunday night.
Coach Urban Meyer, who votes in the coaches poll, said he voted Ohio State No. 2, behind Alabama.
"I've voted us No. 2 all year," Meyer said. "We're playing like one of the top teams in the country right now."
