COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A few things Ohio State will feel good about and some issues that could have potentially kept them from finishing off a perfect season with a 26-21 win over rival Michigan on Saturday afternoon:

THREE UP

1. Mission accomplished: The Buckeyes could have let adversity and the lack of a postseason ahead of them affect them any number of times this season, and there was no shortage of potential distractions against the Wolverines, either. But time after time, first-year coach Urban Meyer and Ohio State rallied around each other and found a way to get the job done -- and the perfect campaign they just finished won't be forgotten any time soon. It also provides a pretty good springboard into Meyer's second season, which won't include a postseason ban.
