COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Ohio State Buckeyes have scored 116 points in their last two wins and feel as though they're building some momentum heading into their Big Ten opener at Maryland on Sunday.
Still, they know they have a lot of work ahead of them after allowing three touchdown passes of at least 60 yards in last weekend's 50-28 victory over Cincinnati.
Coach Urban Meyer says the Buckeyes have shown great effort on defense, but mistakes are still being made. Co-coordinator Luke Fickell is happy with his players' development and also concedes there is plenty of room for improvement.
Right now, the No. 20 Buckeyes are dealing with some dramatic positives and negatives.
