Sooners And Buckeyes Gear Up For Slobberknocker In Trenches

ESPN College GameDay returning to Louisville College GameDay reveals location for Week 3
Elias Hubbard | 08 September, 2017, 00:55

The game between the two top flight universities is scheduled for Saturday, September 9th at 7:30 p.m. EST.

This game features college football's top two programs. Here's our forecast for Week 2.

"He's played enough ball now, I used to have to calm him down a little bit, but not much now", Riley said on the Big Ten teleconference Monday. The 23rd-ranked Horned Frogs, the only team from Texas in the Top 25, are a 3-point favorite against an SEC club that beat them in overtime in Fort Worth a year ago.

Oklahoma's defense needs to do something different than it did past year. I think that's going to help my mindset. Week 1 against Nevada was a win, but it wasn't very convincing. IN chose to air it out, throwing 68 times against OSU. I'm George Costanza when it comes to predicting things; the opposite usually happens, but I'm sticking with the Wildcats.

Oklahoma dropped to 1-2 on the season following that loss to the Buckeyes. If the playoff committee was able to overlook a loss to a Virginia Tech team that finished the year 7-6, they would have a much easier time overlooking a loss to the number five team in the country with their own playoff aspirations, especially this early on in the year. There's more magic in store for the Cyclones this year. The over is ripe for the pickens', but I chose to bet on the underdog once again. Hawkeyes fans let me know about it, so I'm not making the same mistake twice. But if the Buckeyes come out on top, take solace in the fact that this will indirectly help MI in the long run.

Murphy: The Hawkeyes' defense showed last week that there is a legitimate reason to believe in Iowa this season.

"They just beat us, " Mayfield said.

If Ohio State does lose a game, their best case scenario is for that loss to come this weekend against fifth-ranked Oklahoma.

They can not afford to lose to a Big Ten opponent. Texas A&M is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games as an underdog of 3.5 points or less.

The video features The Best Damn Band In The Land, plenty of Buckeye Nation, and some of the top highlights from last year's matchup against Oklahoma to go along with some of the top highlights from Ohio State's win at In in the season opener.

-LB Caleb Kelly, a sophomore, figures to play a bigger role in this game due to his ability to move from the inside to the outside depending on what Ohio State is doing offensively.

Nebraska is a two-touchdown underdog at Oregon.

Said tight end Mark Andrews: "I think most people probably watched it".

VanHaaren: Oregon put up 77 on Southern Utah in the first week.

UTEP coach Sean Kugler knew what was coming. This game is happening too early in the season for Nebraska.

Coaches are fond of saying one season doesn't have anything to do with another. The Huskers gave up 497.

Against Indiana last week, Ohio State at times displayed a five-man defensive front, with four ends on the field at one time.

The Cy-Hawk Trophy game between Iowa State and Iowa in Ames is another that can lift the Big 12 because the Hawkeyes are one of the stronger teams in the Big Ten West. Either way, though, the Sooners have one of the best offensive lines in college football.

Last Meeting: 9/17/16, Ohio State won 45-24 in Norman, Ok.

In all, Oklahoma returns nine starters on offense. "You've got to be able to keep them from just teeing off on you all game long".
