COLUMBUS, Ohio. -- The next time someone tells you that defense wins championships, sit him down and tell him about the offensive orgy staged in The Horseshoe on Saturday.
Tell him about how No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 Michigan gave their defenses the day off, about how the two most traditional powers in the smashmouth Big Ten Conference did their best impersonations of the old Western Athletic Conference shootouts where no scoreboard was safe.
