Sooners face different challenge in Ohio State

BuckeyesBuckeyes topple Hoosiers The Good The Bad and The Ugly Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

"We're gonna have to play a helluva lot better than we played a year ago". Their 11-game winning streak is the nation's longest. We've never been here for a team to sing their fight song on our field. Still, that Ohio State front seven are outstanding, and the defense as a whole is better at creating turnovers. They get their toughest challenge of the season in this one, though, as the Buckeyes' defensive line is one of the best around, loaded up front and at linebacker with potential first-round National Football League draft picks.

Defensive end Tyquan Lewis made two of the sacks last week and is poised for a monster season after making eight sacks previous year.

As Michigan turns its attention to a Cincinnati team that almost lost to Austin Peay in the opener, the Buckeyes welcome the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners to Columbus.

Ohio State edge rusher Sam Hubbard vs Oklahoma left tackle Orlando Brown - The Sooners' left tackle is a bit polarizing in draft circles.

Both teams fared well in Week 1, but only one faced another Power Five squad as the Buckeyes notched their first Big Ten win of the year. Quarterback Baker Mayfield was deadly accurate, connecting on 19 of his 20 passes for 329 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The game between the two top flight universities is scheduled for Saturday, September 9th at 7:30 p.m. EST. "They had at me three different positions, so I couldn't just hide in my shell at one". At the end of the day, Ohio State rushed the football 51 times for over 250 yards and three scores. "You go back and watch it after the game". Ohio State is plenty capable of moving the football but to outscore the Sooners by a touchdown in this game is very debatable. If the running game isn't there early, expect OU to lean heavy on the intermediate and deep passing game to open up some of those rushing lanes.

FSU tumbled all the way to No. 10 with the loss to 'Bama, while USC, with a closer-than-expected win over Western Michigan at home, fell two spots to No. 6.

Despite trailing in the third quarter in Bloomington, Ohio State barely had to adjust its offensive game plan. "The big games like this, you see how physical you are". The Sooners went over the 62.5-point total in the victory.

For now, only four teams in all of college football earn a bid to the playoff, but there are five major conferences. "Thirty-eight plays of no gain or lost yardage". Ohio State's J.T. Barrett finished fifth in the Heisman race as a redshirt freshman in 2014, but in 2015-16, he averaged just 6.7 yards per pass attempt (10.9 per completion). Weber sat out the opener with a hamstring issue. MI fans shouldn't root for Ohio State under any circumstances. Meanwhile, the Buckeye defense forced three IN turnovers. I think Bob Diaco's defense will show up to play, but first-year QB Tanner Lee will wobble in the Autzen smoke. In doing so, he became the closest thing to a governor on the racecar of an enhanced offense that Urban Meyer & Co. are hoping to import from southern IN along with new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. "I'm looking forward to doing that".
