The good news keeps pouring in for Ohio State.
Two days after the Buckeyes had no problem on the road against then-No. 14 Oklahoma and moved up to No. 2 in the AP poll, coach Urban Meyer was named the Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week.

“Coach Meyer motivates his players in all aspects of their lives,” Jim Terry, chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, said in a press release. “His team has had an exemplary season – on and off the field – and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the Buckeyes the rest of the year.”
The Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year award has been handed out since 1976 and went to Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz last season. Wisconsin’s Paul Chryst and Arkansas’ (formerly Wisconsin’s) Bret Bielema won the coach of the week award for the season’s first two weeks, respectively.
The win against the Sooners made Ohio State a flawless 19-0 on the road under Meyer.
