Ohio State handled its “trap” game with no real difficulty, dispatching the Minnesota Golden Gophers 37-3 at the Horseshoe on Saturday. The Buckeyes easily marched down the field for the first score and then the offense struggled for much of the rest of the first half. Meanwhile, the defense was stifling and kept the Gophers from getting anything going all game long.

We looked back at Saturday’s win over Minnesota and broke down how the game unfolded. We also looked back at our score predictions and our picks to click to see how our forecasting skills worked out for us against the Golden Gophers.

We took our weekly walk through the other Big Ten scores to see how the rest of the conference made out. There honestly weren’t a ton of surprises around the league on Saturday, although Michigan struggled a bit after jumping on top early. If not for a lot of self-inflicted wounds, Maryland might have stunned the Wolverines. As it turned out, the Terps only lost by a touchdown.

After checking the scoreboard, we dove into the happenings at Michigan, including all that has transpired since our last show. Jim Harbaugh did not have his day in court, a defensive coach deleted his Twitter account, another one was fired, and the University of Michigan doesn’t seem interested in wording its statements in a way that aligns with those coming out of the Big Ten offices. It’s a strange situation that will likely only get weirder as more is uncovered.

Finally, we looked ahead to The Game. It’s what we’ve all been waiting for all season and both teams enter the rivalry matchup without a loss. Both seem vulnerable at times and unbeatable at others. We also made our picks to click and our score predictions.

We’ll be here with you every week from now until the end of the 2023 Ohio State football season (and then monthly). We’d love to hear from you, so please reach out with your feedback and questions below in the comments section or send us an email.
