If your main thought about Ohio State’s game with Minnesota is, “Wow, these two never play,” you aren’t alone. Despite being in the same conference, Saturday is only the third game between the two since 2011, and they aren’t scheduled to play again until the 2021 season opener. So for that reason, we made the most of this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land by discussing some of our favorite moments from this series, and wondering whether the Buckeyes can have a cleaner performance than last week’s win over Indiana.

12:10- Minnesota’s defense should (maybe?) provide another good challenge for the offense.
13:58- What stops Ohio State from scoring 50-plus?
