(AP) -- Ohio State is on the verge of matching its Big Ten record for consecutive regular-season victories after surviving a scare away from home last weekend.
There's another tough road test looming for the No. 13 Buckeyes, but they'll first try to get by visiting Illinois on Saturday night.
"We aren't looking past nobody, because that's how you get beat," said safety Tyvis Powell, whose team visits No. 8 Michigan State on Nov. 8. "We take every opponent seriously; when you go in there and think you can just slap somebody to win, that's when you get in a fight. ... Nobody should even be thinking about Michigan State at this point."
