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?
