Ben Buchanan, a fifth-year senior for the Ohio State football team, earned was named a Scholar-Athlete for the fifth time.

12-0 on the field and 30-0 in the classroom. That's Urban Meyer.

30 Buckeye footballers were named OSU Scholar-Athletes Thursday, recognized for earning a grade point average of 3.00 or better for the academic year. Only the swimming team (34) had more Scholar-Athletes on the men's side and only one other sport, women's rowing (37), had more than Meyer's team.

Punter Ben Buchanan, recently named a Jesse Owens Medal of Honor finalist, and fullback Adam Homan, both fifth-year seniors, were Scholar-Athletes for a fifth time. Hats off, gents. And to all of you, really.
