On the heels of their impressive 38-7 victory over Army, the Ohio State football team is starting to get hyped for this Saturday’s game against the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. Both teams are coming off of big bounce-back victories, following disappointing defeats.
The Rebs fell in the opening weekend to Howard 43-40, but came back the following Saturday to knock off Idaho 44-16. They then had an off-week to prepare for the Buckeyes.
The No. 10 Buckeyes finally showed an efficient offensive attack after looking lackluster against Oklahoma. UNLV runs a spread offense, so this weekend’s game should be an opportunity for the Buckeye defensive backs to earn some redemption following back-to-back 400 yard passing efforts by opponents in Indiana and OU.
Ohio State and the UNLV Rebels will play this Saturday at The Horseshoe. Kickoff will be at noon ET, and the game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
