The Ohio State Buckeyes secured a perfect season with a 26-21 win over Michigan in the season ending rivalry game this past Saturday.The Buckeyes are ineligible for post-season play after the NCAA levied sanctions against the team stemming from violations during the last days and of the Jim Tressel years.
