There is no such thing as a moral victory for Ohio State -- "keeping it close" with USC, but ultimately getting the game's result driven down their throats on USC's final series.
However, I'm not quite sure it validated USC as an elite team, either. It was a big win, sure, but it's not like USC throttled OSU in a way that we all anticipated.
