Ohio State Buckeyes Take Victory After Deficit
CJJackson

The Ohio State Buckeyes got the victory Monday night despite trailing the Michigan Wolverines by as much as 20 points in the first half. The brutal first half included seven turn overs by the Buckeyes. They would end the first half with a 13 point deficit against the Wolverines.

The second half started with the Buckeyes on fire sinking 10 of 13 first shots.  The Wolverines, who started the first half sinking 60 percent of their shots, cooled in the beginning of the second half missing the first four shots of the half. Ohio State would see their first time in the lead with a little over 12 minutes left in the game. C.J. Jackson and Keita Bates-Diop sank the free throws that would put the Buckeyes in the lead.

The Wisconsin Badgers Are Underdogs

OhioStateWisconsin

It comes as a shock to many that the Wisconsin Badgers are considered the underdogs in the upcoming game against Ohio State. It is a surprise as the Badgers are the only team to win 12 straight in all of the Football Bowl Subdivision.

This unwelcome title is being attributed to low rank of the Badger opponents. Only one of the Badgers victories have been against a team with a top ranking in the AP. Wisconsin themselves ranks a mere 45th in the FBS. Their upcoming opponent, Ohio State, ranks an impressive third.

Even with victories coming from low ranking opponents, twelve straight victories is no small feat. The lowest ranking teams have proven to be formidable opponents against even the best teams. An example is the defeat of the number one ranked Clemson to Syracuse, a team whose ranking does not even make them eligible for a bowl game.

Terry Glenn Dies In Accident

TerryGlenn

Terry Glenn, the well-known Ohio State legend and NFL star, has tragically died in a car accident in Irving, Texas. He was only 43 years old.

Glenn initially joined the Buckeyes as a walk-on but distinguished himself and was honored as an All-American and All-Big Ten wide receiver. He won the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 1995 for being the best receiver in the nation. He still holds Ohio State's record for the most receiving yards scored in a game, including 253 yards and four touchdown catches from his impressive nine-reception game against Pittsburgh in 1995.

In Glenn's final season with Ohio State, he achieved a total of 17 touchdowns and ran 411 receiving yards. He still retains his ranking as the second highest wide receiver scorer in Buckeye's history. Only David Boston, who ran 1,435 yards in 1998, scored higher.

J.T. Barrett Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Week

JTBarrettPOW

It comes as little surprise to anyone that J.T. Barrett of Ohio State was named Big Ten's offensive player of the week. The quarterback for Ohio State was a practical shoe in after this stellar performance against the Penn State Nittany Lions. The comeback on Saturday night was historic and certainly worthy of the title for J.T. Barrett.

Barrett's amazing stats for the night included running for 95 yards, four touchdowns and 33- for-39 for an impressive 328 yards. His performance did have its flaws with a turnover caused by a poor hand-off. He made up for his transgressions in the fourth quarter with three touchdowns and 13 for 13 for 170 of those 328 yards. The game ended with 16 straight attempts completed.

How Ohio State Center Kaleb Wesson Is Defying All The Odds

KalebWesson

Already the superstar of the Ohio State 2017 recruiting class, a lot was expected from Kaleb Wesson in Columbus. Surprisingly, Kaleb Wesson is yet to disappoint. Kaleb was born in Westerville, Ohio and the younger brother of Andre the Ohio State forward.

Kaleb Wesson has come a long way from No. 74 in Ohio to the state's top player. Kaleb Wesson had to shed 60 pounds to assume an Olympic stature at the collegiate level. Like a snake shedding its skin to achieve the impossible dream, Jae'Sean Tate says that Kaleb Wesson has become as multifaceted as a diamond in his play.

With comments like that, it was quite clear that Kaleb Wesson has surpassed the diamond in the rough stage of his career. Tate was also quick to notice that Kaleb Wesson owned the ball at every practice and concluded that Wesson was ready for prime time.

Denzel Ward Vindicated On Maryland Targeting Call

DenzelWardMaryland

Big Ten has announced that junior DB Denzel Ward should not have been called for targeting in last weekends game against Maryland.

The play was sent to the Big Ten for review and the conference determined that there was no penalty. Ward hit Terrapins receiver Tavion Jacobs early in the first quarter of the game and was sent to the locker-room for the remainder of the match. He led with his shoulder into the chest of the opponent and did not make contact with the neck or head of the offensive player.

Every week the Buckeyes send film to the conference office for review of calls. This week it was determined that the call on –the-field was fine but that the replay review should have overturned the targeting call. Coach Urban Meyer was very frustrated and irate that such a mistake could be made during a game. The call this week had no impact on the overall outcome as Ohio State won easily 62-14, but in a close game could be a huge issue.

Ohio State Travels to Rutgers

ChrisAsh

Ohio State is favored to win this weekend on the road against Rutgers by 4 touchdowns. After three years of playing in the Big Ten, Rutgers has yet to beat the Buckeyes and Ohio State is loaded with talent once again. Ohio State players are taking the game seriously, as they should, heading into Piscataway Saturday for a 7:30pm kick off. The BigTen Network will broadcast the match.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Former Ohio State defensive coordinator, Chris Ash, is in his second season as the head coach of Rutgers.

Rutgers is 1-3 with one loss in league play to Nebraska. Rutgers was 0-9 last season in Big Ten play and lost in Columbus 58-0. Hopefully the game this weekend is more competitive.

Urban Meyer feels the defense of the Scarlet Knights is vastly improved to last season even with the team dropping a home game against Eastern Michigan earlier this year. But the statistics do support a greatly improved defense by Rutgers with the team in the top 30 for yards allowed in a game with only 298. The are stingy with the points (18.3 /game) and third down conversions allowed (30%).

The Scarlet Knights have switched to a 3-4 defense from a traditional 4-3. Allowing quick linebackers Kemoko Turay, Trevor Morris and Deonte Roberts to rush or play pass coverage. The team is in a better position to utilize the players that they have.

Rutgers lost their best cornerback for the season in Blessuan Austin last week against Nebraska, so that could a vulnerable spot for the Buckeyes go after this weekend.

Finally, Rutgers quarterback Kyle Bolin has struggled with 3 touchdowns and 6 interceptions this year so far. And there are no weapons on offense except for Janarion Grant to worry about.
