Ohio State beat Northwestern Saturday night in the Big Ten battle of unbeatens. Forget the BCS and national championship talk for a second though, the major storyline coming out of the game was one of the craziest covers Vegas has ever seen. Thanks to this failed lateralpalooza being fumbled into the endzone and recovered by the Buckeyes, up to $100 million dollars changed hands.
Given Brent Musburger's penchant for veiled gambling references, you know a certain percentage of those millions belonged to him. Judging by the tone of this call, I'm willing to bet Brent was on the bad beat side of this play. Maybe that's why he skipped the formalities of a 10 point Ohio State victory and moved straight to the gambling angle. Even Kirk Herbstriet couldn't believe what he saw. Now that's a transcendent moment in sports betting history.
Never change, Brent. Never change.

So much for the house always winning when it comes to gambling.
Ohio State pulled off a bizarre, final-play cover against Northwestern on Saturday, recovering a fumble in the end zone with no time left to provide the final 40-30 score. Had it remained at 34-30 (as it was before the play), the Wildcats would have beaten the 5.5-point spread the Buckeyes were favored by.

James Murphy must have seen that goal Thierry Henry scored in 2000. How else would he have thought to try it in an American college (university) soccer game on Sunday?
Murphy, a sophomore forward at the University of Michigan, scored the game’s only goal in his team’s victory over rival Ohio State. The strike was straight out of Henry’s personal highlight reel, and Murphy...
Evanston, Illinois. Five seconds left. Northwestern down by 4 but covering the 6.5-point spread and holding the ball. Degenerate gambler and Wildcat alum Brent Musburger in the booth giddily shaking and dreaming about what to do with all the money he's about to win on his alma mater plus the points. No way this is getting screwed up. Right?
Ohio State covered the 7.5 point spread against Northwestern last night after the latter's no time on the clock lateral attempts failed and OSU recovered in the end zone for six. Brent Musburger noted that some 'number crunchers' would be happy with the Wildcats continued role as a point spread darling.

Carlos Hyde had a huge game at Northwestern last night- three touchdowns and over 160 yards. On a night when Ohio State really needed Carlos Hyde. Jordan Hall did not dress and has a knee issue that they need to take care of according to Urban Meyer. So Hyde was MVP for the Buckeyes.

The Ohio State Buckeyes showed a large amount testicular fortitude in gutting and scrapping their way to a 40-30 victory over Northwestern Saturday night in Evanston. The Buckeye nation showed itself to be lacking in testicular fortitude as the message boards filled up with whining, crying Bucks fans certain that everything we wanted for this team was lost after Northwestern ‘hit...
