Buckeyes hope they're ready for Big Ten start

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 01, 2013
Forward Deshaun Thomas says ''every night is going to be a fight night.'' Coach Thad Matta calls it's a long, grueling 18 games. Ready or not, it's time for Ohio State to open Big Ten play. The Buckeyes (10-2) host Nebraska (9-4) on Wednesday night. There will be little time to take a breath until they close the regular season with a home game on March 10 against Illinois. Three times the Buckeyes will play back-to-back road games; only once will they have two home games in a row. They'll only play Purdue and Penn State on the road, and get Minnesota and Wisconsin just at home. Grueling? It is when you're playing in the No. 1 RPI-rated conference, with six teams ranked in the AP Top 25.
