Why Rutgers Will Win

Ohio State doesn’t have Chase Young for another week. Other than that …

Okay, so this is a wee bit of an uphill battle for the Scarlet Knights, but watch out for the Buckeyes looking to get in, get this over with, and move on to the Penn State game next week as healthy as possible.

Rutgers is getting back RB Isaih Pacheco from an ankle problem that kept him out of the Illinois game. He’s a real, live weapon for a rested team that’s had two weeks off to gear up a bit.

QB Johnny Langan might not be Joe Burrow throwing the ball, but he can move, and the offense as a whole has had a few moments when it was at least able to move the ball a wee bit.

And then there’s the anger factor. Ohio State was looking to make a point last week against Maryland – there won’t be any onside kicks against the Scarlet Knights. The pity factor might be enough to call the dogs off early.

“Go to the bank!” Today’s top pick of the day just released

Why Ohio State Will Win

Ohio State can call its shot.

Does it want to score 50? 75? Does it really want to push for 100?

It’s playing at the highest of levels on both sides of the ball. The offense might get all the attention and love – QB Justin Fields and RB JK Dobbins are going off for an attack that leads the nation in scoring – but the defense has been the real star.

With or without Young, the D keeps on dominating.

The Buckeyes are No. 1 in the nation in total defense, sacks, and second in the country in third down stops. There’s NFL talent all across the board – it’s more than just Young.

Rutgers might have just enough parts to eek out a late score, but it’s going to take something amazing to get to double-digits.

What’s Going To Happen

Don’t expect the Buckeyes to be all that ticked off about being No. 2 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings – and yet they’ll look and play like they are.

Rutgers will score. It just won’t do it twice.
