Ohio State (5-0) is currently ranked No. 4 while Northwestern (4-0) enters the game ranked No. 16.

Ohio State hardly missed a beat with the return of Braxton Miller at quarterback which does not bode well for Northwestern.

Will Ohio State move to 6-0 or will Northwestern hand them their first loss under Urban Meyer?
