In the first round of ITA Indoor National Championships, the Buckeyes took it to the host team, and 16th seeded Wisconsin 4-0 on Friday night. That win advanced the Buckeyes to quarterfinals on Saturday evening, where they would play against #6 Wake Forest and ultimately earn a 4-3 victory. Defeating Wake Forest propelled OSU into the semifinals which will be tomorrow at 3:30 when they play #5 North Carolina.

A large number of players from Notre Dame and Ohio State are currently suffering from the flu, so both teams have mutually agree to not play this weekend. Thus pushing the Buckeyes next dual meet to next Sunday when they travel to play Georgia. This will be the first time in 46 years that the two programs have not competed against each other in the regular season.

Playing their first true road match of the season, the Buckeyes (and everyone else) were stunned, as OSU fell on the road to #35 Georgia 4-0. Not only was the win a shocker to everyone, but the way they lost, being completed dominated, was quite the shock.

Ohio State will try to get back on track when they play at Stanford on Wednesday.
