NCAAF Week 2: #5 Oklahoma @ #2 Ohio State, Preview and Prediction

Mayfield has that reputation, and he put last year's 45-24 loss to the Buckeyes on himself, specifically the two momentum-turning interceptions in that game.

-LB/DE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo had the Sooners' only sack a week ago and led the Sooners with four tackles.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Ohio State is favored at home, as the Buckeyes are getting odds of -7.5 points against Oklahoma. We've never been here for a team to sing their fight song on our field. IN led the Buckeyes 14-13 at the half, with Cobbs making several acrobatic receptions that allowed IN to retain possession. Still, that Ohio State front seven are outstanding, and the defense as a whole is better at creating turnovers. The Sooners struggled in coverage last season against the Buckeyes, but the added experience in OU's defensive backfield can now be viewed as a strength.

The Sooners moved up two spots to No. 5 after a 56-7 home victory Saturday against UTEP. IN was out-playing the Buckeyes early on, but Ohio State turned things around in the second half thanks to a 36-7 run.

The Buckeyes were without leading rusher Mike Weber (hamstring) against IN and its offense produced only two field goals with just over five minutes remaining IN the first half.

The rate of these crashes climbed more than 50 percent over the three-day Labor Day weekend past year . It should be expected that traffic flow in northern MI will be impacted to some degree.

Instead Ohio State's secondary with new corners Kendall Sheffield and Damon Arnette, and new safeties Jordan Fuller and Erick Smith must bounce back from the 400-plus passing yards (and two tight end touchdowns) IN had last week and try to shut down the Mayfield-Andrews connection.

Not since the start of the College Football Playoff era has a team been able to complete a ideal season.

Oklahoma State fell from No. 10 to No. 11 despite a 59-24 win against in-state foe Tulsa.

Tom VanHaaren: This one is tough because I thought Northwestern was going to surprise a lot of people this season. This week, it's Ohio State's turn.

"You gotta go out there every play and you've gotta bring it", linebacker Jerome Baker said. The Buckeyes' passing game didn't get on track until the second half. Northwestern looked shaky at times in its opening win over Nevada. Saturday's game takes place from Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

About 60,000 people had to leave their homes after being warned that an uncontrolled explosion could flatten a city block. In a show of public spirit, museums are opening their doors for free to provide evacuees with a place to spend the day.

Ohio State hit the road to face one of the Big Ten's up-and-coming programs in Bloomington. "That's the thing when you see guys like that that bothers you". The Sooners' playoff anxiety increased as the season went on.

"I mean everybody that was here for last year's huge loss definitely remembers that", said Mayfield. Properly deploying linemen and fullbacks to stop the evolving looks of some of the country's best defensive lines can be a logistical nightmare.

Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Ohio State's J.T. Barrett have seen every possible situation during their respective careers. Andrews has Ohio State's attention. Meanwhile, the Buckeye defense forced three IN turnovers. "It will be a great atmosphere, one our guys are looking forward to going and competing in". I told someone this morning I don't think that has much effect on it.

But if OU wants to truly erase the hurt from previous year, if they want to validate themselves as a team capable of being special, of winning a national championship, they'll have to arrive in Columbus ready to brawl: just like they were at the end of last season.
