Ohio State did what it was supposed to Saturday against Ohio.
The offense was efficient and balanced, the defense was suffocating and caused turnovers, and special teams showed signs of improvement—not many negatives for coach Jim Tressel to correct this week in practice.
Thus, grades are high are for the Buckeyes this week. The high marks should continue the next three weeks for OSU.
After hosting Eastern Michigan next Saturday, the Buckeyes travel to Illinois and then host Indiana before trekking north to Madison to take on Wisconsin.
