Park Ridge, Ill. - Despite having a bye today, Ohio State collected at least a share of the Leaders Division title after Nebraska defeated Penn State. The undefeated Buckeyes boast a 6-0 record in conference play and hold a two-game advantage over both Penn State and Wisconsin with two games to play. OSU returns to action next weekend with a road test against the Badgers before concluding the season with a home matchup with Michigan on Nov. 24.
The Buckeyes earn their first division title in just the second year of Big Ten divisional play after finishing fourth in the division last season with a 3-5 record. Ohio State is 10-0 overall this season, the fourth time in the last 11 years the school has reeled off 10 wins to start the season.
