Ohio State went into Ann Arbor on Saturday and beat Michigan for an eighth-consecutive year. It was their 15th win in 16 games, and 17th win in the last 19 meetings. Some would call it ‘old hat,’ but if the new hat fits so great and looks so good every year, it’s okay to admire it for its individual beauty. There is no reason to just toss it on your pile of other hats.

COLUMBUS — In the opening drive of Ohio State’s 28-17 win over Penn State on Saturday, the Buckeyes ran the ball on 12 of 13 snaps, and all 91 yards on the drive came via the ground. The drive ended in a touchdown for the Buckeyes, giving them a 7-0 lead. Seemingly everyone was expecting to see Ohio State come out throwing the ball as that’s what Penn State’s…
Ohio State had no trouble handling Rutgers on Saturday but it’s fair to say it was a game that didn’t make anyone who isn’t convinced about the Buckeyes suddenly change their mind. The Buckeyes’ starters were mostly fine, although there wasn’t much in the way of explosive plays in the running game and the defense got gashed for a touchdown by the worst team in the league.
