In 2007, Ohio State lost to Illinois late in season (2nd to last game of the regular season) and ended up falling to #7 in the BCS rankings. They beat scUM 14-3 and then hung out for a couple of weeks and let the season finish out which through many upsets from teams in front of them in the rankings, OSU was propelled the BCS championship game as the #2 ranked team.
So my point.....there is a lot of football to be played and many upsets can and more than likely will happen with top 10 teams going down. Take care of business - first MSU, then Minny and Indiana, obliterate scUM, knock off Nebraska or Wisky in the championship game...and I think Ohio State has a great chance. Remember, their SOS will only go up from here on out also.
One game at a time....let's enjoy the ride and prove something in EL on Saturday night.
