Ohio State earned a resounding victory over Nebraska this past weekend to move to 5-0 on the season. In what was originally seen as perhaps their toughest game of the season outside of Michigan, the Buckeyes won 48-7.

On Sunday, former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer reacted to the big win. Just as he has with the last few Buckeyes wins, he took to Twitter and wrote, "Best thing about 5-0..."

Meyer's many fans got the message and responded with the usual, "Is the chance to go 6-0."

Not only did Ohio State get a big win over one of their toughest Big Ten opponents, they also saw a rise in the polls.

Ohio State jumped over the LSU Tigers, who were on a bye in Week 5. They are now the No. 4 team in the nation according to the Associated Press.

The Buckeyes won't have long to celebrate the win, though. They return to Columbus this coming week to face No. 25 Michigan State.

As good as Ohio State has been, they still have several potentially tough games coming up. Michigan State, Wisconsin, Penn State, and Michigan all loom.

But for now, the Buckeyes are about as good and exciting of a team as any in college football.
