Ohio State Looks To Continue To Roll Against Maryland


If you ask me, and others, Maryland sports have a very obvious pecking order with hoops at the very top, football next, after which the rest of the entertaining things like lacrosse and soccer.  Unlike most universities, Maryland football doesn't possess a clear-cut, standard rivalry game that places some strange item from the very early 1900s at risk annually.  Among their most significant "rivals" must be Virginia, however the meeting has just been once-a-year since 1957, and with Maryland becoming a member of the Big Ten, there's no guarantee that they'll carry on and participate in the game going forward.  Furthermore, what damages Maryland-Virginia with regards to its rivalry game durability is the fact Virginia has two larger rivals besides Maryland: Virginia Tech and North Carolina.

The Buckeyes, at the same time, are intending to keep the existing trend of traction that they've experienced since their September. 6 loss to Virginia Tech.  Soon after getting handed its initial defeat of the year from the Hokies, Ohio State looks to have gotten its foot-hold with a 66 point thrashing of Kent State and previous weekend's beat-down on the Cincy Bearcats.  The Buckeyes were standing high up against the run last week, permitting just 70 yards to the Bearcats, who virtually deserted the run after slipping behind 23-7 in the starting quarter.  UC did have the ability to produce 352 yards and 4 TDs in the air, however the guests converted a miniscule 4-of-11 third-down opportunity and kept possession of the ball for under 18:04 minutes.  Vonn Bell was substantial on the Ohio State defense, as he recorded 7 tackles.  The team overall was attributed with only 1 TLF, that being a sack registered by Joey Bosa, and the Buckeyes never compelled a turnover.

With the Buckeyes displaying the cabability to test squads equally passing and running, Farrand may play an important function in trying to restrict the choices of the OSU offense.  Look for the Buckeyes to carry on to build Elliott as a feature performer within their offense, whilst allowing Barrett to benefit from the chances that arise.  Like Diggs on offense, it will be tough to picture the Terrapins generating a unique win without having their finest defensive player taking part in a vital function within it.  Before the OSU defense demonstrates otherwise, I wouldn't exclude an additional semi-shootout either, despite the fact that I do anticipate advancements being evident on Saturday.
