You have to play them all, so I guess the order should not matter that much, but take a gander at Ohio State's next four games: Michigan State, Nebraska, Illinois and Wisconsin. Three of those four are undefeated four weeks into the season. They are all ranked, while the Buckeyes are not. The middle two games are on the road and will be particularly tough. Nebraska has been foaming at the mouth since the Big Ten schedule was released, targeting that home date with the dreaded Buckeyes. The Huskers want to stamp their Big Ten membership card in that one. Illinois has always been a troublesome place for Ohio State, even when the Buckeyes were very good and the Illini were not. And Wisconsin just looks so much better than everyone else. It would not be a stretch to see Ohio State go 1-3 in this difficult month.
