NCAA Top 25, Week 13

The superlatives surrounding the Ohio St.-Michigan game were out of control. Beano Cook called it the greatest game in the history of the rivalry for instance. It was a good game. But the outcome was never really in doubt. Ohio St. was clearly the better of the two teams. They let Michigan back in the game. If they don't fumble the ball twice, it's a fairly easy victory. So let's keep things in perspective a bit.
