COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - The second-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes were on the bus ride home from the airport after Wednesday night’s victory at Michigan. The TV sets in the luxury coach were tuned to No. 1 Duke’s game at Florida State.

Yet there was no celebration when the Blue Devils lost 66-61. Mostly there was silence.

An odd mix of mostly seniors and freshmen, the Buckeyes don’t have being No. 1 _ should they get there by beating Penn State at home Saturday _ as a goal.

So far they are perfect through 17 games, including four in the rugged Big Ten. Oh, and they waxed Florida State on its home court, 58-44, back on the last day of November.

Now the Buckeyes say they’re looking at the big picture.

(This version CORRECTS that bus ride was home from airport.)
