COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) When Ohio State coach Urban Meyer looks at Northern Illinois, he sees a lot of Big Ten in the Mid-American Conference champions.

Considering the Huskies have beaten the last three Big Ten teams they have faced, that is not such a stretch.

Northern Illinois has been good enough to beat Purdue, Iowa and Northwestern, though, is not necessarily good enough to beat the top-ranked Buckeyes (2-0) on Saturday. For all of the success the Huskies (2-0) have had in recent years, including five straight seasons of at least 11 victories, knocking off Ohio State in the Horseshoe would be the greatest achievement in the history of the program.
