The Buckeyes are big favorites to start the 2018 season.

NCAA Football: Cotton Bowl-Ohio State vs Southern California Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

It’s safe to assume that Ohio State is going to beat Oregon State by a fair amount on Saturday. The Buckeyes might be the most talented team in the country, while the Beavers look to rebuild with a new coaching staff after a disastrous 1-11 2017. A blowout win seems likely, but by just how much?

On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Colton Denning and Patrick Mayhorn preview the game, discuss how much they think the Buckeyes will win by, and more, including:

  • The main things that they’re watching for on Saturday (How Dwayne Haskins looks in his first start, which freshmen will play, will Demario McCall ever see the field)
  • Ryan Day’s first press conference, and being impressed with the way he handled what is a very tough situation.
  • Position battles for the opener, including along the offensive line, and in the secondary.
  • Setting the over/under for Tate Martell’s rushing yards at 80, and more!

The guys also give hot takes about if the coaching staff is deliberately keeping expectations for Haskins low, why they’re worried about the offensive line, and what they’re excited to see in week one in college football.
