"Those kids got all excited after the Georgia game was over and we won," Bowden remembered. "They said, 'We're getting our rings! We're getting our rings!'"

He added, "I still wear mine: Best in the SEC."

STAT OF THE DAY: According to ESPN, of the 15 undefeated teams remaining in the Football Bowl Subdivision, three are from Ohio (Cincinnati, Ohio, Ohio State) and two are from Oregon (Oregon, Oregon State). No other state has more than one.

SIMONIZED: Senior and two-time captain John Simon was announced Tuesday as the Chuck Bednarik Award's national player of the week.

The rush DE was also named the Lott IMPACT Award and the College Football Performance Award national defensive player of the week.

Simon was dominant in No. 8 Ohio State's 63-38 win over No. 21 Nebraska Saturday with seven tackles, including a school record-tying five tackles for a loss, totaling 24 yards. Included in that total was two quarterback sacks and he also forced a fumble.

He is second in the Big Ten with 7.5 tackles for minus yardage (totaling 33 yards) and is sixth in sacks.
