People talked trash for a few years after Maryland and Rutgers joined the conference about how they were watering down the quality of play, but with teams like Illinois already stinking up the joint, I don’t think it was the new guys’ fault the B1G is looked at as weak by some folks.
It’s cliché, but Saturday could be a giant trap game for Ohio State.
Ohio State is expected to blowout Illinois Saturday afternoon, but for many Buckeyes and even fans, it will be an emotional day on Senior Day. Along with many players playing their last game in the Shoe including both seniors and redshirt sophomore and juniors who will leave early and take their talents to the NFL, it will also be the last home game for many students as well.
So, you’re telling me there’s a chance? After a hectic weekend in college football, Ohio State moves up from No. 13 to No. 9 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. Just when you thought the Buckeyes were out of it, they still (somehow) have a good chance to make the Final Four.
Even though it was against two opponents that Ohio State should have easily beaten, getting the first-game jitters out of the way for both the new coaching staff and seven newcomers was important for the Buckeyes. Ohio State began a perfect 2-0 during the first weekend of college basketball after beating Robert Morris and Radford.
After an embarrassing performance in Iowa last week, the Buckeyes made quite a statement Saturday afternoon. Back at Ohio Stadium, Ohio State scored early and often on their way to a 48-3 rout over No. 12 Michigan State. Whether it was the offense or the defense, both sides of the ball dominated for the scarlet and gray.
Can the Buckeyes bounce back from last week’s shellacking? Let’s take a look at the team they’ll be doing it against.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are not having the season they expected. The Michigan State Spartans are having a fantastic rebound season. As the two prepare to clash, here is everything you need to know.
For the first time in the Urban Meyer Era, the Ohio State Buckeyes have lost two regular season games in the same season. At No. 13, the chances are very slim that Ohio State will make the Playoff even if they win out. The Buckeyes will need some major help and plenty of chaos to take place in order to make the Final Four. It all starts Saturday afternoon against Michigan State. Ohio State’s video and graphic team gets you ready for the game with this intense trailer.
Ohio State’s playoff hopes are very slim after their horrible loss at Iowa that dropped them to No. 13 in second (and most recent) Playoff rankings, but they still have plenty to play for. The Buckeyes control their own destiny in the Big Ten. It all starts this weekend when they host No. 12 Michigan State Saturday afternoon. The Spartans are coming off of an upset win over Penn State.
Whether it’s Ezekiel Elliott, Mike Weber, or J.K. Dobbins, just to name a few, Ohio State has had plenty of talent in the backfield during the Urban Meyer Era. In four of the Buckeyes’ last five losses, the group has been underutilized. Although Urban Meyer has continuously stated that things will change, the running backs have disappeared when you look at the box score when Ohio State loses. That must change.
Ohio State was walking into a trap in Iowa City on Saturday. Everyone knew it, except Ohio State. The Hawkeyes ambushed the Buckeyes 55-24 on Saturday.
Iowa may not be very good at football, but they have a lot of famous alumni and a really, really cool new tradition.
The Ohio State Buckeyes travel to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes and some discussion about the history of the initial College Football Playoff rankings.
Coming off one of the best comebacks in recent memory in college football, Ohio State’s video and graphic team had plenty of highlights to put together this week’s hype trailer.
After they were ranked No. 3 in the country by both the AP and Coaches polls, the Ohio State Buckeyes open at No. 6 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season. Don’t worry, the Buckeyes have plenty of time to get into the important Top Four.
Just when Ohio State was on the verge of losing their second home game of the season and suffering their second regular season loss in the same year for the first time in the Urban Meyer era, J.T. Barrett stepped up and had a perfect fourth quarter when his team needed him the most.
Ohio State kept their Playoff and Big Ten title hopes alive, and they also rose to No. 3 in both the AP Top 25 and Coaches Polls.
