Ohio State lost on Saturday. Defeat might not be a bad thing for the Buckeyes.
Ohio State was upset by Penn State on Saturday night, 24-21, at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa. This is the Buckeyes' third regular season loss under Urban Meyer; their first of 2016.
Losing stinks, but it hasn't been an indicator of what's to come for OSU under Meyer. Well, actually, it has. It just hasn't been an indicator of more losing.
Ohio State is 15-o under Meyer in the games that follow a regular season loss.
That stat, plus this "Mad Buckeyes are dangerous" tweet from OSU running back Mike Weber, should have Buckeye fans fairly optimistic going forward.
Ohio State is set to host Northwestern next Saturday.
