Ohio State won’t get caught looking ahead (or in the past). Literally.
As the Buckeyes try to regroup after the stunning 24-21 loss to Penn State, they’re doing whatever they can to stay focused. That means trying to think about only Northwestern and not any other future games (looking at you, Nov. 26 vs. Michigan).
In Ohio State’s football building, the Buckeyes covered up every game on their 2016 schedule — except for Saturday’s game against Northwestern.

That “one track mind” will be essential as the pressure is on Ohio State. The Buckeyes aren’t getting ahead of themselves, even though they’ll likely need to win out to have a shot at making the College Football Playoff.
Ohio State plays at home vs. Northwestern at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN.
