Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith says the move to a new four-team FBS playoff system may mean not scheduling so many games against Mid-American Conference teams.
The Buckeyes have played MAC teams almost annually since ending a 58-year span without meeting an Ohio or MAC team in 1992. Ohio State has played MAC teams 20 times since then, sometimes two in the same season.

It's no secret to any of our frequent readers that I'm an Ohio State fan. However, I've also made it very clear that I'm not a fan of the school's president, E. Gordon Gee. In a recent report by Laura A. Bischoff from the Dayton Daily News, it was revealed that Gee has expensed millions to the school since 2007 to throw parties, travel and woo prospective...
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer had positive news on the injury front for his last meeting with local reporters before the Buckeyes head to Michigan State to start their 100th season of Big Ten play on Saturday.
