Across The Field: Several points

October, 14, 2012
Giving up 49 points to Indiana? Whoa. But the Buckeyes won, and already have more victories than they did all last season, and scored more points in back-to-back games since scoring 142 in routs of Rice and Pittsburgh to start the 1996 Rose Bowl season. This is Across The Field, a regular feature on BuckeyeNation where we point you to noteworthy Buckeyes coverage here and elsewhere. Think something should be included? Send it to
