Ohio State Climbs To No. 6 In Latest AP Poll

However, the Ohio State Buckeyes hung 62 points on MI and held their hated rivals in check for a 62-39 win Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.

After their demoralizing beatdown of MI this past weekend, Urban Meyer and Ohio State earned their spot in the Big 10 Championship Game against Northwestern, but it looks like starting senior right guard Demetrius Knox won't be playing in the do-or-die game.

MI got as close as 7-6 and 21-19 but a blow out third quarter led the Buckeyes to a win and an 11-1 season.

Ohio State plays No. 19 Northwestern in the Big 10 Championship next week. If the Crimson Tide lose a close game to the Bulldogs, is there anything that would convince the committee Oklahoma or Ohio State is the better team - especially since Alabama has been ranked No. 1 all season? "Win our next game, that's our motivation now".

In the 115th meeting between two of college football's most storied schools, Ohio State scored more points than it ever had against MI - more points than any team has ever scored in regulation against the Wolverines. "This is a game that's got years and miles behind".

MI quarterback Shea Patterson left the game in the second half with an apparent leg injury. He looped through a seam in the line and got a chunk of Will Hart's punt.

Haskins finished with 318 yards and set the Big Ten season record for TD passes with 41.

No. 21 Northwestern started 1-3, losing early season games to Duke, Akron and MI. We knew we had to win this game. Meyer has often looked pained and exhausted on the sideline.

"That's a huge advantage", Meyer said of Northwestern's head start. "And like someone was saying, nothing's ever good enough". After I got done watching MI, I'm like, 'Man, I hope we don't play these guys.' And then after watching Ohio State, I'm like, 'Man, I hope we don't play these guys.' It was a lose-lose from a schematic standpoint, coaching standpoint, and talent standpoint. "And to come back against your rival and play like that, that's a focused team that loves each other and cares about each other".

No. 10 Ohio State (10-1, 7-1, No. 10 CFP) comes in more vulnerable than its record shows, having played spotty defense for much of the year.

Michigan's defense was the talk of college football going into this rivalry weekend. But Ohio State may need another 59-0 win to do it.

The Wolverines were 3-1 against Ohio State during Brady's time on the roster.

Ohio State offensive lineman Thayer Munford (knee), receiver Terry McLaurin (head), running back Mike Weber (thigh bruise), defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones (shoulder) and linebacker Baron Browning (unspecified) all are expected to play.
