Before every Ohio State football game, the LGHL Tailgate podcast will get you ready with all of the information that you need for that day’s game. Legendary Columbus sports reporter Lori Schmidt from 610 WTVN will also join us to give her signature insight into the contest.
Today, No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes head out on the rode for their first primetime contest of the 2019 season as they visit Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb. as they play the 3-1 (1-0) Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Before the season started today’s game was a trendy upset pick for many concerned about Ohio State having a new coach and quarterback. But, through four games, OSU is far better than even the biggest Buckeye homers likely imagined, and the Huskers have underwhelmed, despite a 3-1 record.
