COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A look at three Ohio State players who will be critical in another top-25 showdown in the Big Ten, this one against Nebraska at Ohio Stadium on Saturday night (TV: ABC, 8 p.m.).

He’ll have to expand his contributions even more with Hall officially out of the lineup against Nebraska.
