Ohio State Football at Rutgers Saturday

The Ohio State Football Buckeye game against the Scarlet Knights this weekend will air on the Big Ten Network at 3:30pm. Ohio State beat Akron last weekend in a game they were supposed to win big, 59-7. Subsequently, they saw a one place drop in the college football rankings. This weekend they have their second Big Ten game of the season against the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers. They are on the road again with a chance to impress against a little tougher competition.

CJ Stroud returns as the starting quarterback while Kyle McCord filled in last week performing as well as everyone thought he would. Outside of those two, there is still a lot of question marks for this unit. This week should tell a lot as they'll be on the road.

Rutgers Welcoming the Buckeyes

Greg Schiano has the Rutgers football team turned around and looking for a big day at home on Saturday. Rutgers lost against the Michigan Wolverines (20-13) last week and comes into this one a 15.5 point underdog. Rutgers feels its more of an even matchup than those coming from Columbus.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have a ton of talent in their offense this season. Quarterback Noah Vedral leads a very talented group of receivers. But Ohio State Football has shown time and again that it is capable of making game and season adjustments to come out on top.

The Buckeyes have a solid defense and a really talented offense. Now the stage is set for Rutgers to make a big statement.

How This Game Could Go

Rutgers defensive is much improved, but their defensive backfield is suspect. Ohio State should control the line of scrimmage when Rutgers has the ball, making it hard for them to run. Rutgers Quarterback Noah Vedral has been adequate but will need to be great to pull off an upside against OSU. This is the kind of game Buckeye tailback TreVoyon Henderson can run for over 200 yards and score a couple of times. The Ohio State offensive line is starting to look good which would end this game early if the Buckeyes control both lines of scrimmage.

The Pick Is Ohio State! As the Big Ten season progresses through its non-conference and now conference schedules, the top teams will rise to the top of the standings. When the Buckeyes reach the summit, they will be an unstoppable force. The OSU Buckeyes will win the Big Ten Championship.
