Ohio State took advantage of Northwestern miscues and put this one away early.  Here a few photos exclusive to Buckeye50 from the more than 300 photos taken during the game against the Wildcats.  The wait is over and now we can look ahead to the Michigan game.  Both teams are 11-0 as the 'THE Game' this year will decide the Big Ten Champion as well as who will play in National Championship game in Glendale.  Who knows, if the games play out just right, could their be a rematch?

Senior Captain Doug Datish has been anchoring the offensive line all year with minimal recognition, so KUDOS DOUG!
Coach Tressel tries to fire-up the team, fortunately, the Chicago wind was the toughest thing they faced this day
Senior Captain David Patterson is back full strength from his injury .... just in time for the game against Michigan
Malcolm Jenkins turns in another solid performance and led 
the team with 8 total tackles  .....
Stan White could have made it ten different receivers on the game but could not quite come up with this pass
Gonzo celebrates the game's first TD of the game with pass recipient Brian Hartline (does Erin Andrews look less than happy?)
Jay Richardson scrambles for the lose ball (does the Northwestern player have just one tooth or a striped mouthpiece?)
Troy Smith dives for extra yardage finishing the game with 15 yards rushing (expect more than that against Michigan)
.... including this one to force Northwestern into a 
punting situation
Troy did not seemed to be bothered by the thumb injury, and turns in another Heisman worthy performance
Antonio Pittman seems to be heading for a touchdown but instead fumbles on the play, recovered by the Wildcats
Roy Hall reaches for the goal line after a fine catch and run but the play is called back on a penalty
Maurice Wells had 4.6 yards per carry, including this run 
for 15 yards
It is not every day you see your punter carrying the ball, but I am sure AJ Trapasso was reminded of his days as a fullback at Pickerington Central on this extra point attempt
