COLUMBUS, Ohio – Two road games and two big victories later, the seventh-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes close out the regular season at home with a lot at stake.
Coach Urban Meyer said on Monday how happy he and his players were that they were back in familiar surroundings after knocking off Michigan State and Minnesota.
The Buckeyes host Indiana on Saturday, needing only a win to reserve a spot in the Big Ten championship game for the second year in a row.
Ever since they lost to Michigan State 34-24 in last year's title game, the Buckeyes have had a return to the championship game at or near the top of their wish list.
Of course, in the regular-season finale they tackle archrival Michigan, again in Ohio Stadium.
