Ohio State vs. Illinois: Live Score, Reaction and Analysis

Scott Polacek@@ScottPolacekFeatured ColumnistJanuary 5, 2013

Ohio State may have been the higher-ranked team heading into Saturday afternoon’s contest at Illinois, but the Illini made short work of the Buckeyes and came away with a dominating 74-55 victory. 

The Buckeyes struggled all day with turnovers (16), and John Groce’s squad made them pay in transition early and often.

It will be interesting to see where each team is ranked on Monday after such a blowout win for the Illini. Winning on the road in the Big Ten this year will not be an easy ordeal for anyone.
