Just like that, the Buckeyes have seen their unbeaten season trashed—and their playoff hopes damaged. But Michigan and Nebraska remain perfect. And Wisconsin tallied yet another impressive victory.

Dienhart: Penn State deals blow to Ohio State's national title hopes

Ohio State’s national title hopes took a big blow Saturday night amid a wall of sound and fury at Penn State. The No. 2 Buckeyes’ 24-21 loss at unranked Penn State makes the program’s path to the playoff more difficult—and less of a sure thing.

When the season began, most pundits looked at the first five games of Wisconsin’s Big Ten schedule and shuttered. Well, so far, so good. Wisconsin is 2-2 in Big Ten play after an impressive 17-9 win at Iowa pushed the Badgers to 5-2 overall.

Great teams find ways to win ugly. And, make no mistake about it, Ohio State is a great team and this wasn’t the prettiest game in Madison, Wisconsin. The Buckeyes weren’t at their best on this night but found a way to grind out a 30-23 overtime win at Wisconsin and remain on course for a huge season—perhaps a national championship season. Ohio State is 6-0 and ranked No. 2 in the nation for a reason, firmly in control of its destiny. The Buckeyes are a well coached team and have more talent than any team in the Big Ten.

Dienhart: The Hawkeyes may just be getting started

Iowa should have dominated Purdue. And, that’s exactly what the Hawkeyes did Saturday, taking a 49-35 win. But this was more about just notching a win. This was about sending a message.
