The game was one of the low points of the Jim Tressel era at Ohio State. The lopsided defeat dropped the Buckeyes to 0-3 in the Big Ten on the way to an 8-4, 4-4 season. But the game also marked the start of the Troy Smith era at Ohio State, with the future Heisman Trophy winner coming on in relief of Justin Zwick at quarterback in the second quarter and the Buckeyes already trailing 17-0.

With this edition of Reprint Thursday, we take a look at that game with stories from the Oct. 23, 2004 issue of Buckeye Sports Bulletin.
