Sill Going Srong:
Two Big Ten programs maintainunblemished records heading into the seventh weekof the season. Ohio State is the only program in thenation boasting a 6-0 record after going on the roadto defeat previously unbeaten Northwestern lastSaturday. The Buckeyes are 2-0 in conference playand have a bye this weekend. Michigan was victori-ous against Minnesota in its conference opener lastSaturday and will carry a 5-0 mark into this week-end’s matchup at Penn State. Michigan and OhioState are among a group of 17 programs in thecountry who remain undefeated.
Nohing New:
Ohio State moves to 6-0 for the sec-ond straight season. Since 2002, the Buckeyes haveofficially opened the year with six straight wins fivetimes, achieving the feat in 2002, 2006, 2007 and2012. In each of those seasons, Ohio State openedwith a least 10 straight victories. Michigan movesto 5-0 for the third time in the last four seasons,having also won its first five games to open the2010 season and six straight to begin the 2011campaign. Prior to 2011, the Wolverines last wontheir first six games of the season in 2006, a year inwhich they opened with 11 consecutive victories.
