I’m finally gonna acquiesce to the notion that Ohio State faces a challenge to get to the BCS title game. Yes, the Buckeyes have a great shot to go unbeaten. But that may not be enough for OSU to finish No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings, as teams like Alabama, Oregon and Clemson are primed to likely finish ahead of Ohio State if they remain unbeaten. So, I’m moving the Buckeyes from the BCS title game to the Rose Bowl.

Another week, more changes to my power rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. Wisconsin, Nebraska and Michigan State were the big winners, as the Badgers went from No. 4 to No. 2, the Cornhuskers from No. 5 to No. 3 and the Spartans from No. 6 to No. 4. Penn State is also up. Week Seven wasn’t so kind to Northwestern, which dropped from No. 2 to No. 6.

The Big Ten hockey season has begun, but go ahead and catch up with these six video previews, one for each Big Ten men’s hockey team.
In April, Steve Rohlik was appointed head coach of the Buckeyes after spending three years as associate head coach under Mark Osiecki. Ohio State is Rohlik’s first college head coaching job after assisting at Minnesota-Duluth (2001-2010) and Nebraska-Omaha (1997-2000). Coming off a 16-17-7 campaign as part of the CCHA, the Buckeyes return the majority of their roster, including team captain Curtis Gedig on the blue line and forwards Tanner Fritz and Ryan Dzingel, who finished one-two on the CCHA point leaderboards last season.
