After dismantling Iowa 54-10 on Saturday, Ohio State remains in the number 2 spot in both the coaches and the AP Poll. The top 6 in the poll remain the same as the rest of it saw a sizable shift with some key teams losing yesterday. Perhaps most importantly for the Buckeyes is their opponent next week is up to #13 as Penn State took care of business against Minnesota in their annual "White Out" game in happy valley.
Ohio State will go on the road for just the second time this season as they take on the 13th ranked Nittany Lions in a game that is always a competitive affair. Should be the only major road test of the season, as the only remaining road games after are Northwestern and Maryland. If Ohio State wants to bolster its resume, it needs to start with an impressive showing in Happy Valley.
