With a win over Michigan this coming Saturday, Ohio State would finish the regular season 12-0. They haven't done that since 2012, Urban Meyer's first year as head coach.

Meyer has no doubt been enjoying watching his protege Ryan Day lead the Buckeyes to an 11-0 start. He got to see yesterday's win over Penn State up close as a member of FOX's pregame coverage.

Still, he doesn't want to see his old program get its head too swollen before "The Game" against Michigan on Saturday. That's why Meyer tweeted one of his favorite mantras this afternoon.

"Best thing about 11-0...."he wrote.

Every OSU fan knows how to finish that statement off: "the chance to go 12-0."

Ohio State will face Michigan on Saturday looking to go 12-0. The last time the Buckeyes lost to the Wolverines was 2011, the year before Meyer started as head coach.

Obviously, Ohio State doesn't want to lose this game, but they have some leeway here. They've already locked in a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game, and as long as they win that, they'll be in the CFP.
