Ohio State gets Juiced; #1 Spot Now Up For Grabs

So much for Ohio State’s run as the #1 team in the country.

The Buckeyes fell to the Juice Williams-led Fighting Illini 28-21, making a lot of people around this site very happy.

While Juice only threw for 141 yards, he was efficient, with 4 of his 12 completions going for touchdowns. He added another 70 yards on the ground.

His QB counterpart, Todd Boeckman, threw 3 picks and the Buckeyes had 4 turnovers on the day. Illinois protected the ball and didn’t have a single turnover. If you can get a +4 turnover ratio, you’ve got a pretty good chance of winning.

The question is now, who will be #1 when the new polls come out tomorrow? LSU? Oregon? Oklahoma? Oregon’s bye this week could hurt them, as LSU & Oklahoma should be able to get pretty easy wins against Louisiana Tech & Baylor respectively.
