The one concern about the Ohio State football team coming into the season was whether a rebuilt defense would be good enough to win a Big 10 championship and a possible national title.

Although it has come against two marginal opponents, the Buckeyes have shown in the early going that they have a championship-worthy defense in the making.

After wins over Buffalo and San Diego State, the Buckeyes are allowing only 13.5 points and 269 yards of total offense.

“We are getting close to the kind of defense that I have a dream of seeing, and that’s aggressive,” said head coach Urban Meyer this week.
