COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - There is almost no one - except for maybe a deluded fan somewhere - who believes Florida A&M has a remote chance against fourth-ranked Ohio State on Saturday.
With a Big Ten opener a week later against rival Wisconsin, the Buckeyes will use the Rattlers as a full-dress scrimmage to iron out the final wrinkles before embarking on the games that really count.
Coach Urban Meyer expected his players to be complacent this week, and was prepared to have his assistants jump down their throats to get them to focus. But that wasn't necessary. The Buckeyes have been efficient and businesslike all week.
The big news around Ohio State isn't who the opponent is but rather who'll be back on the field: tailback Carlos Hyde and quarterback Braxton Miller.
