Winners and losers:

Ohio State loses starting safety for season

The SportsXchange

Ohio State defeated Wisconsin on Saturday night, but in the process the No. 3 ranked Buckeyes (USA Today poll) lost senior captain and starting safety Christian Bryant for the season.

Bryant broke his left ankle with 30 seconds left in the game after tackling Badgers running back James White on a third-down play.

When discussing what Bryant means to his squad, a frustrated Urban Meyer was visibly upset as he pounded the podium.

"We lost our captain," the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Meyer saying. "He has a broken ankle, and it's just tough news. It's the hardest part of this whole job, man."

Ohio State already has overcome an injury to its offensive leader, quarterback Braxton Miller, who missed almost three full games with a knee injury.

The Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0 in the Big Ten) travel to face No. 15 Northwestern (4-0, 0-0) in a primetime conference showdown on Saturday.
