Urban Meyer, Ohio State open as home underdogs to MI

Relentlessly zipping up and down the field, ninth-ranked Ohio State and upstart Maryland were racking up yards and points at a dizzying pace.

But both prevailed, preserving the enormity of the annual heavyweight fight. MI has looked like the better team, though, and is riding a 10-game winning streak. Of course, ruining a championship run for the hated rival Wolverines would be a welcome byproduct for the Buckeyes.

So it'll be another big one. "Last stop on the revenge tour". We had the ball, we had to make one play to win. But by the sounds of it, we should be in for an entertaining matchup at Ohio Stadium on Saturday.

No. 16 Penn State 20, Rutgers 7 - At Piscataway, N.J.: Trace McSorley threw two touchdown passes to tight end Pat Freiermuth and Penn State's defense set up two touchdowns with turnovers in a victory over Rutgers, sending the Scarlet Knights to their 10th straight loss. They are 74th in the country in passing defense in S&P+, and 111th in the nation defensively in passing downs.

These antics, while amusing to those following the Russian Federation saga, have irked Special Counsel Robert Mueller . He did not say why he waited to mount the challenge in court.

The numbers are nearly unprecedented in Ohio State football history. Ohio State gave up 535 total yards, 298 to running back Anthony McFarland.

"It still came down, a lot of them, to tackling", said OSU defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. "We've just got to keep putting it together and go out next week and find a way".

Higdon, Michigan's star running back who has gained more than 1,000 yards rushing and scored 10 touchdowns so far this season, was asked if he would guarantee that the Wolverines would be victorious in Columbus on Saturday.

"I would have probably done the same thing if I was their coach, the way they were gaining yards on us", Meyer said.
