COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Most will rest. Some will try to heal injuries. Others will try catch up on classwork or a personal life.
A bye week is a time to take a breath for the fifth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes.
But they also know it's just a temporary lull. After taking time off this week, the Buckeyes begin to prep for their biggest games of the year: at Wisconsin on Nov. 17 and at home against archrival Michigan a week later.
Despite a glittering start (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) to their season, what remains will determine whether Urban Meyer's first Ohio State team is an unqualified success or one that wilted when it got close to its biggest goals.
For now, though, the Buckeyes will take a break after going hard since mid-summer.
