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."

Urban Meyer wanted to let the loss "hurt for a while," but now Ohio State is moving on with all of its goals still in reach. "I don't think we played our best game," Meyer said. "But when you lose a game, accept it, move on and get ready for the next one."

Can Ohio State bounce back quickly? Historically, Urban Meyer's teams have proven pretty resilient, losing consecutive games just four times during his 15-year career. The Buckeyes have done that just once since he arrived, losing to Michigan State and Clemson at the end of the 2013 season.
