Ohio State vs Ohio
State has the luxury of
two home warm-up games before the epic showdown with USC on the 13th. OU is coming off a 6-6 season and is losing
its starting quarterback, running back and six defensemen. These factors will not help the Bobcats on
their trip through the MAC and certainly not against the Buckeyes.
By Pete Quint
OU does not match up well against the Bucks in experience
and talent. Like the YSU game the week
before, Jim Tressel will have the opportunity to play a bunch of young players and
get them valuable game time experience.
Look for a straight forward game without a lot of bells and whistles as
they prep for USC the following week.
OU gave OSU a game for the first half the last time they met
in Columbus. Expect OU head coach Frank Solich to throw
everything he has at the Buckeyes to get an early edge. Solich might catch the Buckeyes looking ahead
to USC and could get a few early scores.
Eventually the Buckeyes will wear down the Bobcats and pull away late in
the third for a comfortable 17 point victory.
