Demario McCall from Ohio State is showing that he is better than everyone thought
If MSU does not upset the odds, the young back ought to be worth watching in coming weeks.
After proving his potential against Rutgers and Bowling Green earlier this season, running back McCall was sidelined when things took a turn for the worse for Ohio State over four games in October. Nonetheless, with the Buckeye's consecutive 62/3 wins over Maryland and Nebraska, McCall has again caught the eye of the Ohio State team. Curtis Samuel, the H back, is on course to have a great season, so many have earmarked him for the NFL Draft of 2017 already. If this is true, then McCall may be OSU's next game changing playmaker.
Recent history is sufficient to remind Ohio State fans about MSU's ability to ruin the post season aspirations of the Scarlet and Grey's. Nonetheless, S&P+ rankings predict a comfortable win of thirty points for the Buckeyes. Although fans should not look past the current challenge, if this is what transpires, it could be a chance to assess McCall's capabilities against a battle hardened defense that coach Urban Meyer claims is extremely tough.
Given that their (MSU) season is essentially finished, after their match against Penn State on Saturday, no one should underestimate the resolve of a proud side trying to spoil the favorite's tactics, after they calculated the path to victory defeating Rutgers 49/0 last week.
