No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes (-27.5) vs. Minnesota | over/under 50
Game Date/Time: Saturday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. ET
Location: Columbus, Ohio
TV: Big Ten Network
Radio: 97.1 FM/1460 AM
Today at 4:00 pm ET at the cathedral of college football known to the world as Ohio Stadium, the No. 2 and 10-0 Ohio State Buckeyes — coached by Ryan Day — will take on the 5-5 Minnesota Golden Gophers under the direction of the greatest boat rower in the history of the world P.J. Fleck.
This past Tuesday, the Buckeyes were jumped by the two-time defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs to be the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. Ohio State now sits at No. 2.
The Buckeyes remain third in both the AP and Coaches polls with one first-place vote from the media and three from the coaches. Minnesota is not ranked.
The Gophers come into the game at 5-5 this season, their wins came against Nebraska, Eastern Michigan, Louisiana, Iowa, and Michigan State. However, they are riding a two-game losing streak falling to Illinois and Purdue in consecutive Saturdays. If Fleck’s squad wants to become bowl-eligible, they will need to either beat the Buckeyes today or Luke Fickell’s Badgers in the season finale.
Matt’s Prediction: Ohio State 41, Minnesota 10
Kyle McCord: 300 yards passing
TreVeyon Henderson: 1 touchdown on a 25+ yard touch
Marvin Harrison Jr: 3 touchdowns
