Mike Couzens ESPN College Football 

Ever wondered if penalties correlate to success? Not necessarily. ECU and UConn are tied for 4th fewest (28 flags) in FBS and have a combined one conference win. Ohio State, Utah, and UNC are all in the Top 25 and rank 103rd or worse in total penalties.

With Wednesday's practice in the books, Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett and position coach Tim Beck talk some shop. Is this the week the Buckeyes break out again with their passing attack?

Urban Meyer has heard some talk about still being in the College Football Playoff, but with signs all over the practice facility that simply say "Beat Northwestern," he's trying to keep Ohio State focused on one game. "Everything is still out there," Meyer said. "But you have to beat Northwestern."

Urban Meyer isn't planning to address the possibility of running the table to get back to the College Football Playoff, but he probably doesn't even need to since Ohio State already has experience doing just that in 2014. "I'm actually trying not to go there," Meyer said. "I hear that, and a lot of players like to say things and talk afterwards, and that's fine. I don't usually bring that up, but I also don't stand in the way of leaders to get people's attention. I think that's out there, but I'm trying to avoid that."
