Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0)
The Buckeyes scored some style points on Saturday, and because something is always wrong in college football, they were promptly accused of running up the score. When backup quarterbacks score with four minutes remaining in the third quarter of a conference game -- even with the starter split out wide on the play -- it's not running up the score. Ohio State can't win here. As long as Alabama, Oregon and Florida State keep winning, the Buckeyes probably won't jump any of those teams in the polls. The knock against Ohio State before was that the Buckeyes didn't win impressively enough. Yet if they win too impressively, they're ripped for picking on inferior teams. All they can do is keep playing well and hope the teams above them stumble.
Last game: Beat Penn State, 63-14
Next game: Saturday at Purdue
