Ohio State’s 56-27 win over Michigan this afternoon was the program’s eighth in a row over its biggest rival, and its 15th in the last 16 tries.
Urban Meyer got to enjoy the win from Ann Arbor, though he wasn’t on the sideline. In his first year of retirement from OSU, Meyer has been part of FOX’s pregame coverage all season long.
Meyer went 7-0 against the Wolverines, and now his protege Ryan Day has a win against Michigan under his belt. Before the game, Meyer didn’t hide his allegiance, nor did he do so post-game.
After the win, Meyer tweeted out one of his favorite mantras as a message to the Ohio State team and fan base.
Best thing about 12-0…

Ohio State will have the chance to go 13-0 in the Big Ten Championship Game next week. The Buckeyes have won the last two conference titles and three of the last five.
Their opponent will either be Minnesota or Wisconsin, who are currently playing for the Big Ten West in Minneapolis. It looks like it will be the Badgers, who lead 31-10 in the third quarter.
Win that game and the Buckeyes will have the opportunity to go 14-0 in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff.
