Ohio State Buckeyes v. Indiana Hoosiers college football game today

The Hoosier took the opening possession of the second half and cut the Ohio State lead back down to just a touchdown again.

The Buckeyes were leveled by departures for the National Football League this season with the likes of Ezekiel Elliott, Darron Lee, Joey Bosa, and Vonn Bell leaving Columbus early. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes have made every team they've played look like they were more apt to be playing pop-warner. Meyer called out eight defensive players as earning the highest grades against IN, which was held to just 99 yards on the ground.

With their two easiest conference games now under their belt, the Buckeyes now face some tough competition beginning this week. On one particular play, replay showed a clueless Baugh unable to find anyone to block even though an IN defender was right IN front of him.

Yes, the current Ohio State team probably has a dozen or so players who will eventually make it to the NFL. "Eliminate (mistakes) and get bigger wins". "You can just tell he's older and more mature". "Our defense played great".

Safety Malik Hooker sealed the win by picking off Richard Lagow on Indiana's next series. The biggest was a stop inside the 5-yard line in the second half with in threatening to make it a seven-point game. The Buckeyes might be the best overall team in the country and they are nearly impossible to beat at home inside the Horseshoe.

"Real risky", Meyer said before a slight backtrack. That's why I truly don't think they'll lose a game this year. "That's something I didn't do a good job at today". "I think coach (Paul) Chryst, I don't know him very well, but I can push play and see it's one of the best coached teams in the United States of America".

But Meyer acknowledged on Tuesday's Big Ten coaches teleconference that his current team might be his most talented.

The Buckeyes and Badgers play at 7 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

Ohio State ran for 410 yards last weekend against Rutgers.

A major stop came in the fourth quarter when the Hoosiers had fourth-and-one from the OSU 5, and were denied.

"That's going to be worked on extremely hard", Meyer said Monday. "It's incredible that they've had coach transition". Defense, they're outstanding. - They've changed defensive coordinators and still the same defense, Wisconsin's defense.

Give me the Wisconsin Badgers and the points.

J.T. Barrett hadn't found himself in this position very often.

-QB J.T. Barrett - The junior's upward trajectory in the Heisman Trophy race leveled off Saturday in Ohio State's 37-17 win over Indiana.

Floyd, the 98-pound bronze pig first awarded in 1935 as a bet between the governors of the two states, must've felt unwanted for most of the game.

Barrett carried the ball a career-high 26 times for 137 yards and one touchdown in a 38-17 victory over Indiana.

The classic "elite college football team could beat this garbage NFL team" debate is back, and it involves a pair of teams in Ohio.

Oct 8, 2016; Columbus, OH, USA; Indiana Hoosiers wide receiver Mitchell Paige (87) celebrates a touchdown with offensive lineman Wes Martin (76) at Ohio Stadium. He had two turnovers, however, one on a lost fumble inside the IU 10 and the other on an interception in the fourth quarter.

Indiana's Tyler Green (3) breaks up a pass intended for Ohio State's Paris Campbell during Saturday's game at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.

-RB/H-back Curtis Samuel - The junior carried only nine times in Saturday's 38-17 win over in and gained 82 yards, but he did not catch a pass.

Samuel was a missing element for much of the first half, not earning a touch until the second quarter. "That's something I have to get better at".

It was 290, and Weber and Samuel proved to be as big of threats as Barrett.
