Ohio State vs. Northern Illinois
Starting out strong on the season at 2-0, Ohio State was up for a challenge against Northern Illinois. The Huskies have made 7 straight bowl games including a BCS bowl game, The Orange Bowl. Ohio State started out shaky. Cardale Jones threw two interceptions within the first two quarters and was benched for JT Barrett in the 2nd quarter. This game seemed to be last year’s Virginia Tech game of this year. Then our defense bailed us out again. Darron Lee got his first interception of the season and took it to the house to put us up by ten. This makes him the player of the week. (see pick 6). Our defense proved yet again that they were one of the top units in the NCAA. Even though they are undefeated they have to play better to prove their number one ranking in the polls.
