Buckeyes unbeaten again, but are they better?

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two teams, each 9-0. They play in the same league. Both are highly ranked.

Which is better?

If you're comparing the 2012 Ohio State Buckeyes and the current version, coach Urban Meyer has the answer. He says this year's team has a much, much better offense and that's why it's better.

The numbers support that position.

Through nine games - and heading into a game with Illinois, just like the 2012 team was - this year's Buckeyes are averaging 100 more yards of total offense and 13 more points per game.

Last season's defense may have been superior although Meyer also says this year's Buckeyes are better on special teams, too.
