COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - There’s a potential spot in the history books awaiting the 2010 Ohio State Buckeyes.

Thing is, their coach doesn’t want them to give it a thought.

Only Woody Hayes’ powerhouse Ohio State squads of 1972-77 captured all or a piece of six straight conference titles. The Buckeyes, winners of three outright and two shared titles in the last five years, could match it this fall.

The Buckeyes are stacked with talent, with nine starters back on offense and five on defense. The schedule isn’t a killer, despite the dangerous Miami Hurricanes coming to Columbus in Week 2, along with road tests against conference rivals Iowa and Wisconsin.

Coach Jim Tressel enters his 10th year on the job. He’s wary of using a Buckeye Six-pack as motivation because he believes looking ahead can cause problems.
