Ohio State is currently 9-0 and riding a 21-game winning streak, but interestingly enough, is clearly on the outside looking in when it comes to the BCS National Championship race. The Buckeyes are playing great as of late, having beat their last two opponents by a combined score of 119-14. In fact, Urban Meyer thinks this team is a lot like his 2006 national title team at Florida:
Urban Meyer says he would compare this season’s Ohio State team to his 2006 Florida team, which got better and better throughout the season.

He’s right that his team is showing improvement as the season goes along, and the Buckeyes also have a nice two-QB system that could be a possibility with Miller and Guiton if you’re looking for more parallels with his Gators squad that featured Tim Tebow and Chris Leak. If the teams continues to get better like Meyer is seeing, expect a few more blowouts from the Buckeyes down the stretch.
Unfortunately for Ohio State, just winning in style won’t significantly sway the minds of the voters — OSU still likely needs multiple teams ahead of it to fall, as it currently sits fourth in the BCS standings. Regardless, it is a good sign for Meyer and his team that they are still rounding into peak form.
