Buckeyes Bubble Burst

Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State lost all hope of making the BCS Championship game in back to back years with a 21-28 loss last night in Columbus against Illinois. Zook the head coach of the Fighting Illini decided to go for it on fourth down against Ohio State’s #1 ranked defense in the fourth quarter and was able to pick up the first down. This led to Illinois running all over the Buckeyes and burning the last 8 minutes of the game to secure the victory. Ohio State lost this game due to only running three plays in the fourth quarter, poor play from quarterback Todd Boeckman, and the fact they couldn’t stop super sophomore quarterback Juice Williams of Illinois. I’m very excited that a Big 10 team can’t make the BCS Championship game because the league is extremely weak and it would have been exposed even worse than last year. Ohio State can still win the Big 10 Championship next week if they defeat Michigan, but the huge rivalry could have had so much more riding on it for Tressel and the Buckeyes!
