The Buckeyes sit a game back of MI in the Big Ten East, while the Cornhuskers lead the pack by a game in the Big Ten West. Nebraska is coming off an overtime loss at Wisconsin and hopes to channel that frustration toward Saturday's contest. He got some extra work when Mike Weber left the game with a shoulder injury, but Meyer said the injury wasn't serious. Only Maryland and a reeling Michigan State stand between the Buckeyes and entering the game vs. the Wolverines with one loss. Hills has two touchdown passes in four of his last eight games. His status for the game against Minnesota Saturday at Memorial Stadium is not yet known.
"We played a good game today, everything was clicking", Samuel said. "We have to play a great, complete ballgame, and have to be ready to take advantage of any opportunities presented to us as we go".
"It's not a way you want to start a game obviously", senior wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp said.
"He feels good", Riley said Monday. And even worse for Nebraska fans, it doesn't control its own destiny any longer. He would later return to his team after being checked out okay, but obviously unable to return to play.
Meyer may have been a mess, but the Buckeyes cleaned up well on Saturday night. "It's just one of these historical places, and it's an absolutely electric atmosphere". More important for the Buckeyes, they won the first of four November games that will define their season.
There was the close shave in Madison, followed by the 3-point loss to Penn State on the road because of some special team gaffes, and a stuck in neutral type of performance last week, at home, against an inconsistent Northwestern squad.

McMonagle tried to convince a judge to dismiss charges of aggravated indecent assault against the 79-year-old actor and comedian. Both Steele and defense attorney Brian McMonagle said they are ready, after those hearings, to move forward.
A number of Cornhuskers chafed throughout the week at the notion that they were 17-point underdogs.
Ohio State: Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer has answered so many questions about getting the ball to Samuel more often over the last few weeks that he was laughing about them during the week leading up to Nebraska. "I've had a lot of respect for what they've done and obviously their recruiting has been outstanding", he said.
"I might have him come to a couple more if we keep playing like this", Barrett joked.
To have a shot at that, the Huskers will likely need Armstrong, who was knocked out during the second quarter after his head bounced off the turf while being tackled by Ohio State safety Malik Hooker. Noah Brown and Terry McLaurin also each hauled in a touchdown pass for Ohio State. He took over as Nebraska's starting quarterback midway through his redshirt-freshman season, in 2013, and he is the latest in a long line of Cornhuskers signal-callers who can gain yards with their legs as well as their arms. The loss gives Wisconsin the inside track on the battle to win the Big Ten West. Backups were all over the field for the entire fourth quarter.
COLUMBUS, OH- Following a pair of flat outings in their previous two games, Ohio State put everything together in a 62-3 beat down of visiting Nebraska Saturday evening at Ohio Stadium. "Oh, it's important, (but) not for us", he said.
"It looked very odd to me", he said. I'm sure people will tell me about it. He's a piece of the puzzle and a giant piece of the puzzle.
