USA poll puts Bucks on top, Texas second

The Ohio State Buckeyes are ranked number one in the first USA Today poll. Texas is second. This is good and bad news for Ohio State. The short history of games matching number one against two, Ohio State is 2-0. The most recent match up was against The Miami Hurricanes in the Championship game.
The attention of being number one could weigh heavy against a team that has two early nationally televised night games.
The Buckeyes have never been a successful team playing when the sun goes down, but the national attention will force them to play more evening and night contests. Coach Tressel and his team will be tested early in the year; the first five weeks may determine the season.
