The Buckeyes have to stay focused.

Ohio State is back in the College Football Playoff race, but the Buckeyes aren't thinking about that right now.

Urban Meyer said at his Monday afternoon press conference that OSU is strictly focused on Saturday's game against Illinois.

The Ohio State coach said his assistants and his players will have "zero conversation" about the possibility of making the playoff moving forward.

That's the mindset you have to have, but you have to think that at least some of Ohio State's players are thinking about a playoff berth after what happened on Saturday.
