Box Score: Ohio State 52, Indiana 49

Yikes. This again was way too close for comfort, as the Hoosiers were able to respond to every second half score by the Buckeyes. In the end, Urban Meyer’s squad was in control and pretty much cruised to victory, but the final line just isn’t pretty at all.

This one won’t go down as one of the better games of the year. Although it’s nice to break 50+ in a second straight game, there’s nothing really to brag about this one.

    Every undefeated season has unexpected close calls…especially on the road. The most important thing is that you leave those types of games as the winner.
