The Buckeyes continue their quest for a bid in the National Championship game with a convincing win against Indiana in Columbus.  Here are a few photos from the game courtesy of the AP Wire sources.  Ohio State is now 8-0, and a 4-0 in the Big Ten, with Michigan being the only other team remaining undefeated in the Big Ten.  At this point it seems that Ohio State has basically clinched a spot for a BCS bid, in either Glendale or Pasadena.
