College Football Schedule 2012: Buckeyes off with a bye week

After playing 10 straight games to open the season, Ohio State is off this week.

In winning 10 games in 10 weeks to open the season, the Ohio State Buckeyes haven't had much time to rest this season. That changes this weekend as Ohio State will be off on its bye week.

The Buckeyes have just two games remaining, but they should enter the final stretch well rested after taking this weekend off. At 10-0, Ohio State needs a road win against Wisconsin and a home win against Michigan to complete a perfect regular season. While the Buckeyes have the weekend off, there will be plenty of action around the Big Ten.

Ohio State's next opponent, Wisconsin, will be on the road facing Indiana on Saturday. Michigan and Nebraska are tied atop the Legends division, but both will face tough tests on Saturday. Michigan will host No. 24 Northwestern while the Cornhuskers will host a Penn State team that has won six of its last seven games.

Here is a complete look at this weekend's Big Ten schedule:

11/10 12 p.m. ET: Wisconsin at Indiana, ESPN2

11/10 12 p.m. ET: Purdue at Iowa, Big Ten Network

11/10 12 p.m. ET: Northwestern at Michigan, ESPN
