**Click HERE Urban Meyer to hear Coach Meyer after OSU's win over Wisconsin**
The Buckeye offense gained only 236 yards, failed to get a first down in the fourth quarter and had the ball for barely over 22 minutes...but somehow Ohio State is 11-0.
The Buckeyes beat Wisconsin 21-14 in overtime thanks to an OSU defense that made a fourth quarter goal line stand, then after giving up the tying touchdown with eight seconds left, stopped Wisconsin four-and-out after the Carlos Hyde overtime touchdown that proved to be the game winner. Urban Meyer's thoughts quickly shifted from the Badgers, to next week's showdown with Michigan.
"This is all I ever knew growing up and we have a group of coaches...eight of our nine coaches are from the state of Ohio and there's a lot of players in there that have already experienced it," Meyer said of the Buckeye/Michigan game. "You talk about rivalries...this (the Wisconsin game) is a great game against a very good team that's been to the Rose Bowl a bunch but this is not our rival. The next one is. When we use that 'R-word,' we're talking about this week so we're going to dive into it as soon as we get back."
The victory over Wisconsin gave the Buckeyes the outright Leaders Division championship...an accomplishment, said Meyer, but not the ultimate prize.
"Our players won a ring tonight and they're champions of their side," Meyer said. "But we all understand that's all put on the shelf for a while for this one game."
