COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Andrew Norwell says when he and the rest of Ohio State's offensive linemen walk into a room, the conversation stops and everyone takes note of the small group of large men.
People are noticing them even more these days, now that they're central figures on a team that is unbeaten and ranked No. 8.
Coach Urban Meyer credits the line for the Buckeyes' big wins the past two weeks against nationally ranked Michigan State and Nebraska. Meyer used to denigrate the position, saying the line was ``nonfunctional'' when he first watched it in action.
Now, with Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) on a roll, Meyer has changed his tune.
``Our offensive line is the whole reason why we're where we are today,'' he said this week.
