No. 1 Buckeyes Hang On, 24-17

There are 2 comments on the The Associated Press story from Oct 20, 2007, titled No. 1 Buckeyes Hang On, 24-17 . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

No. 1 Ohio State got a scare, but avoided being yet another upset victim.

The Buckeyes built a comfortable lead and then gave up two touchdowns off turnovers late in the third quarter _ and almost lost another fumble deep in their own territory on the next play _ to slip past Michigan State 24-17 on Saturday.

All week, both sides had talked about what happened in the 1998 meeting, when the unbeaten Buckeyes were 26 1/2-point favorites and had a 24-9 lead in the third quarter yet unraveled to lose the No. 1 ranking when the Spartans pulled off a 28-24 shocker. Read more

This game wasnt even close. The defense gave up 3 points to the highest rated offense in the Big 10. 2 flukes gave MSU 14 points. No worries, the Bucks roll on.

Next victim = Penn State.

Go Bucks!!!!!!!!!!
