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.
