As everyone has told Buckeye fans all season long, “let the games play themselves out” and that they are. Another top unbeaten team has fallen and this time it was a biggie. Oregon was dominated for 54 minutes by Stanford last Thursday and have fallen out of the top spot. Not a lot else really […]

The Week That Were: 11.09.13
