The Buckeyes are favored by 21 points.  Nebraska visits the snake pit after a Buckeye loss to Purdue and an extra week to think about it.  Anything could happen if the Buckeye's play like they did against Purdue.  Husker QB Martinez is looking even more dangerous than Haskins.  I just have a feeling it's going to be real ugly for Nebraska and Coach Frost.

I'm just glad that the bye week is over.

Buckeyes win easily after the Bye and the upset by the boilers - 21 is about right if the Huskers can score 28

hopefully the Husker offense can move the ball and score some points (28)

the Husker defense will be torched (49)

I haven't seen much out of the Buckeyes that makes me think this will be an easy win.

it will be. Nebraska's defense is all kinds of terrible. I know, I know. Ohio State's defense hasn't been world beaters. It's still better than Nebraska's.
Ohio State will win in a shoot out by 14 points I think. A healthy Martinez has enough fire power to hit some big plays on this Ohio State defense, which is why I think the game is a little bit closer than what Vegas thinks.
Will still be a double digit win for OSU.

I'd like to see some lineup changes on defense...D. Williams and Domann need to be on the field at safety. Both are quicker and more athletic than Tre Neal and Aaron Williams. Make the game plan simple and let them play. 

Offensively, the OL comes back to earth after a few good outings. NU only has 2 WRs that can concern tOSU, and I suspect they will bracket Speilman and take their chances with their best CB in Morgan's face all day. Pressure will take care of the rest. 

50-something to 20-something....which is, sadly, an improvement.

Haskins has been good and, by extension, the WR corpse has mostly been solid. 

Outside of that? No major complaints about the kicking game.

Other than the QB, WR and Kickers? Wooooo weeeee. This OSU team is bad.

Domann at OLB for much needed speed and cover ability there.

The Frosh QB will be running for his life.  Hopefully his legs can make some big plays. And his head doesn't turn the ball over.

I tend to think "we" over react to the last game when it was dramatic.

Ohio State is far ahead of Nebraska at this point, and it won't be close.  49-24.

as you can see, this is what the Husker fans here are predicting.
just hoping to make the tOSU punter take the field

What's the over/under on the number of 50+ yard TDs for JD Spielman?

I'd guess 4

Urban Meyer addresses speculation about his future by saying he’ll be back next season as Ohio State’s coach.
