Buckeyes make mistakes but say they'll get better (Yahoo Sports)
Urban Meyer has heard others say his team is too young, or that it was crippled by the loss of two-time Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller. After the fifth-ranked Buckeyes came back from a slow start to beat Navy 34-17 on Saturday, Meyer said he doesn't want to hear anything more about inexperience or adversity. ''Enough with the excuses and get going.'' The Buckeyes trailed 7-6 at the half and by a point midway through the third quarter. He gave himself a stern talking to after throwing an interception while Ohio State was on the march inside the Navy 10 midway through the second quarter.
Louisville defeats Miami 31-13 in ACC debut (Yahoo Sports)

Dominique Brown had a 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and Gerald Christian scored on a 10-yard TD catch late in the fourth, leading Louisville to a 31-13 victory over Miami on Monday night. Despite the 18-point margin, Louisville showed little of the offensive efficiency expected to be a staple of Petrino's second coaching stint at the school.
