COLUMBUS, Ohio — The win over the Badgers gave Ohio State its first unbeaten home season since 1984.

In recording their sixth consecutive victory, the Buckeyes topped the 400-yard mark (458) in total offense for the fifth straight week. Not to be outdone, the OSU defense held the Badgers to no passing yards, the first time in 13 seasons that an opponent had failed to gain any yardage through the air.

Buckeye fullback Scottie Graham rushed for a career-high 152 yards, the last 53 of that total coming at tailback. Freshman Dante Lee, once again filling in for injured starter Carlos Snow at tailback, added 98 yards.

Cornerback David Brown, one of 16 OSU seniors playing for the final time in Ohio Stadium, broke the game open just before halftime when he returned an interception 43 yards for a touchdown.
