No. 16 Northwestern pushed around No. 4 Ohio State for much of the night, but in the end, the Buckeyes were too strong for the Wildcats in a 40-30 victory. The Buckeyes (6-0) extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 18 behind a strong performance from Carlos Hyde and a defense that made a lot of plays in the second half. The Wildcats (4-1) showed that last year’s 10-win season was no fluke and that head coach Pat Fitzgerald is building something special in Evanston, Ill. The two met for a prime-time matchup on Saturday night and gave us the game of the year in the Big Ten so far. Begin Slideshow
