URBAN: ‘I LOVE THIS TEAM’: Entering the season with 16 new starters, Urban didn’t quite know what he had. Now, after a gritty win against Wisconsin, he really likes what he sees: “I love this team. I love the fact they found a way to win a game…I love the toughness. I like the fact they are getting very close. So all the things you look for in team is outstanding.” Tim May with more. Ohio State is favored by 19.5 points against Penn State Saturday.
