Urban Meyer's Buckeyes are the first team with six conference wins in the Big Ten.

With their fourth 50-point offensive performance of the season on Saturday, the Ohio State Buckeyes stayed perfect against Big Ten opponents after 10 weeks of action.

The Buckeyes moved to 10-0 overall with the victory, and are just two wins away from running through their entire 2012 schedule without a loss. After taking Week 11 off on a bye, head coach Urban Meyer's team will hit the road to face Wisconsin on Nov. 17, before returning home to play rival Michigan the following weekend.

With the Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions both unable to participate in the Big Ten title game, the Wisconsin Badgers currently hold first place in the Leaders Division at 3-2. The Badgers could wrap up a trip to the finale with one more victory due to the odd circumstances, and are likely to face off against either Nebraska or Michigan for the conference championship.

Here are the full Big Ten standings after 10 weeks:
