COLUMBUS, Ohio — Sunday was the biggest victory in coach Fran McCaffery’s four seasons as Iowa’s basketball coach.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Ohio State offensive lineman Corey Linsley needed about a week to get over the disappointment. Given the stakes, that sounds fair.

Hope doesn’t always come wrapped in a victory.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — One play created a painful flashback on Saturday for Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz. Ohio State faced a 3rd-and-7 at Iowa’s 28-yard line early in the fourth quarter of the game tied at 24. Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller became bottled up, but reversed field and turned a drive-ender into 9 yards and a […]
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The “targeting” rule designed to protect defenseless offensive players from hits above the shoulders led to a controversial moment Saturday in Ohio State’s victory against Iowa. When quarterback Jake Rudock connected with C.J. Fiedorowicz on an 11-yard, first-quarter completion in Buckeye territory, second-team All-America cornerback Bradley Roby delivered a vicious hit as […]
