Dienhart: 'I'm not sure if anyone can beat Ohio State'

Throughout Saturday’s Week 6 action, senior writer Tom Dienhart offered his Snap Reactions to all the Big Ten games. See what Dienhart had to say about Ohio State’s impressive and prolific 63-38 victory over surging Nebraska in this post. Ohio State 63, Nebraska 38 1. I’m not sure if anyone can beat Ohio State. After this effort, led by Braxton Miller and his 186 yards rushing, I’m beginning to wonder if the Buckeyes can be topped. Trips to Penn State and Wisconsin may be dicey. And the season-ending visit from Michigan could be. But, wow, this team looks untouchable

Ohio State stays perfect, rolls Nebraska, 63-38

Revsine's Numbers: Nebraska offense dials it up

This week’s college football slate is nothing short of phenomenal: Georgia-South Carolina, LSU-Florida, and West Virginia-Texas are among about a half dozen intriguing games. The Big Ten has its share of good ones, including a match-up of ranked teams in Columbus, as Nebraska visits Ohio State. It seems as good a place as any to jump into this week’s “Numbers.” I never would have thought this at the outset of the year, given their struggles down the stretch last season and my concerns about Taylor Martinez in the passing game, but I’m more and more convinced that the Huskers have

Dienhart: Week 6 Big Ten questions

Another Saturday looms. And, I have questions. Here are my most pressing queries for Big Ten teams entering Week 6, the second week of conference play. Read all of my Big Ten coverage here and don’t forget to send any of your questions my way for my weekly Big Ten Mailbag. Illinois Can the Fighting Illini get on track?

Now comes back-to-back road games at Wisconsin and Michigan. Bottom

Best of Week 6: Bo Pelini returns to Columbus

This week’s schedule is loaded with three good games, the headliner being Nebraska’s trip to Ohio State. Each could be the top team in their respective division. The subplots are thick, with great quarterback and head coaching battles leading the way. Oh, and Bo Pelini, a Youngstown, Ohio, native returns to Ohio State, where he was a defensive back from 1987-90. The Buckeyes also are looking for revenge. The Cornhuskers roared back from a 21-point second-half deficit to beat the Buckeyes, 34-27, last year in the first Big Ten game played at Memorial Stadium. [RELATED: Week 6 Power Rankings |
