Over its past two games, UCF has given up 23 total points and played its best football of the season.

But he didn't have the starting job in hand until Joe Burrow dropped out of the quarterback derby in the summer and subsequently transferred to LSU.

Maybe most satisfying of all, Ohio State has won 14 of the last 15 meetings against the team it loves to beat the most.

"Obviously, we saw talent but weren't sure". After the game, coaches and players said the ball was flipped from Haskins to Campbell, which makes it a forward pass.

Urban Meyer contends that nobody around Ohio State will be talking about the College Football Playoff this week, even though the Buckeyes inserted themselves back into the national championship conversation with a blowout of MI. I think if a few things go our way we get to the Rose Bowl.

MI has had a solid season.

This was Harbaugh's chance to finally best Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes - the moment he could finally prove himself as one of the top coaches in the country and get the big win. "Win our next game, that's our motivation now".

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. The Buckeyes can win their third Big Ten title in five seasons this Saturday against Northwestern (8-4).

MI had one final stop on its Revenge Tour, but the venue was booked.

Ohio State: Meyer was suspended after a university investigation into his handling of former assistant coach Zach Smith, who has been accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife. They have been increasingly confident publicly. Ohio State had struggled at times this season, especially on defense, and was holding on at No. 10.

"I mean, we've lost to them so much", Brady said.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes have won six straight against Northwestern and lost to the Wildcats just once, dating to 1972.
