The Buckeyes record their first shutout since blanking Northwestern 20-0 during the 2003 season. Here are a few photos exclusive to Buckeye 50 from the more than 200 photos taken during the game against Minnesota.  Ohio State is now 9-0 for the year, and a 4-0 in Big Ten play, with Michigan being the only other team remaining undefeated in the Big Ten.  At this point Ohio State has basically clinched a spot for a BCS bid, in either Glendale or Pasadena.
