COLUMBUS, Ohio - College football players often have to struggle with the monotony of a long season. At Ohio State, they've also had to fight against the drip, drip, drip of continual NCAA allegations and suspensions. Buckeyes center Mike Brewster said he and his teammates weren't shaken by the latest body blow - two players thought to be returning to the team this week had their suspensions lengthened because they were overpaid for summer jobs. Lots of teams talk about distractions, but for the Buckeyes those have come about as frequently as sunrises.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Fourth down and 10 yards to go, and most likely the season was on the line for Ohio State Saturday. But the Buckeyes gave the ball to Terrelle Pryor, and the quarterback used his legs to help them escape from Iowa with their Rose Bowl hopes intact for another week. Eighth-ranked Ohio State rallied to beat Iowa, 20-17, with a key run from Pryor followed by Dan Herron's 1-yard touchdown jaunt with 1 minute, 47 seconds left. Pryor, who threw for 195 yards and a touchdown for the Buckeyes (10-1, 6-1 Big Ten)

Nebraska might look back on its record-setting comeback win over Ohio State as the game that saved its season. A week after a 31-point loss at Wisconsin, the Cornhuskers trailed by 21 points in the third quarter before they rallied to win, 34-27, Saturday night in the greatest comeback in program history. With a challenging schedule in their inaugural Big Ten season, an 0-2 start in league play would have been devastating for the preseason pick to win the Legends Division.

Finally, after what seemed like four interminable weeks of nonleague play against the likes of Indiana State, Southeast Missouri, and three teams from the Dakotas, the member football teams of the Big Ten Conference will start beating up on each other Saturday. Four teams will begin the first season of divisional play in the Big Ten with unbeaten records. Wisconsin and Nebraska were expected to be unblemished through four games, and both are ranked in the top 10 by the AP, also not a shocker.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Everybody's got a solution for what ails Ohio State. Interim coach Luke Fickell said he was grilled by fans at a meeting with a booster group on Tuesday morning. "Sorry about that," he said after he showed up a few minutes late for his weekly news conference. "The Quarterback Club had a lot more questions today. " One persistent member of that club wanted to know why the Buckeyes only run on first and second downs and only throw on third. "He told me when he was coaching high school, 'We threw it on first, threw it on second and then ran draw plays on third and it was really successful,"' Fickell said.

MOBILE, Ala. - The tattoos that cover DeVier Posey's arms tell a story, but Posey feels it isn't just the one about the entitled big-time college athlete who ended up in the middle of a huge scandal. Posey, a wide receiver from Ohio State, is at the Senior Bowl trying to give NFL scouts the look they didn't really get during the 2011 season, when he was suspended for the first 10 games of his senior year - five games for trading memorabilia for tattoos, the NCAA violations that took down Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel, and five games for accepting what the NCAA deemed excessive remuneration from a part-time job provided by a Cleveland-area booster.

THIS HAS been a strange season for Penn State and Ohio State, and it could get stranger still when the 21st-ranked Nittany Lions and Buckeyes tangle tomorrow afternoon in a key Big Ten Conference Leaders Division matchup in Ohio Stadium. If you put aside the fact that both tradition-rich programs have been beset with scandals - OK, you probably can't do that - what might happen on the field could prove nearly as surprising as the idea that this game could be played with neither Penn State's Joe Paterno nor Ohio State's Jim Tressel coaching in it. What if the outcome hinges on the play of two wide receivers, one for each team, who between them have caught three passes this season?

THIS CAN all be very simple, if Louisiana State beats once-beaten Arkansas at home and likely a Georgia team that could bring a 10-game winning streak into the SEC championship (the Tigers aren't losing at Mississippi), and Oklahoma State beats once-beaten Oklahoma at home (the Cowboys aren't losing at Iowa State). Then you'd have the lone unbeatens from BCS conferences (sorry, Houston) playing for the national title on Jan. 9 in New Orleans, where LSU won it all after the 2003 and 2007 seasons.
