The Ohio State Buckeyes have all kinds of streaks going — three tight wins in a row, a perfect 7-0 mark this season and a nation's best 19 consecutive victories.

At the same time, they haven't been overpowering in Big Ten play — their three wins are by seven points, 10 (with a last-second touchdown) and 10 — and that's not enough to convert poll-voting doubters or the computers that analyze teams in the Bowl Championship Series.

But the bottom line is that, no matter how they play or who they play, the Buckeyes just keep winning under coach Urban Meyer.

Next up is another home game against Penn State (4-2, 1-1) on Saturday.
