OSU 30 Illinois 0
It’s wet here in Ohio and most of the first half of this game was a soggy mess. It wasn’t exciting, but it was a good, solid shutout. Great way to open the Big Ten season.
A little Ohio State trivia…Actors Patricia Heaton, JK Simmons, and Melinda Kanakaredes all attended OSU.
So, how did your team do today? Give us an update :)
Here are a few bloggers who left some love for their team last week…
Staci is always rooting for Michigan State (as am I since my hubby is an alum) although they fell to the Irish.
Kathy’s Virginia Tech pulled a fast one and beat Nebraska.
Thoughts of Joy was Michigan Blue all the way.
And Harvee showed some appreciation for the Toledo Rockets even in their loss.
I LOVE college football. As a kid growing up just east of Columbus it was scarlet and gray all the way. So, I am so happy football season is back. I am still recovering from last week’s loss to USC, but I’m trying to let it go.
Today’s football score…OHIO STATE 38 TOLEDO 0
So how did your team do today?
It’s THE day for Ohio State and Michigan football lovers. It’s the game that always ends the season and it should be a cold and snowy one. The Buckeyes are 22 1/2 point favorites and have won the last four years. But Michigan could make it’s whole season with a win today.

True freshman Terrelle Pryor started the game. He is already good and it’s a comfort to fans that he’ll be around awhile.
Beanie Wells was back! Not up to par, but back for a solid game.
The game served as the kick-off for the 2008-09 Scarlet and Gray games, a program for Ohio State student-athletes to support each other at designated games throughout the year. The members of Ohio State’s varsity teams, comprising more than 850 athletes, were recognized on the field during halftime. Four spring 2008 Buckeye conference championship teams – women’s basketball, men’s lacrosse, men’s tennis and men’s volleyball – were recognized as well.
All I can say about Ohio State’s 26-14 win over Ohio University today is…I’m glad I attended last week instead of this one. Yikes! For those who were not watching, OSU was losing until the fourth quarter. I would like to say ‘Bring on the Trojans’, but I think it may be foolish to taunt them :)
