    sorry for derailing the thread.

    NW doesn't have the horses this year. Defense shuts them down. Buckeyes by 27.

    Man, just looked at NW's QB ratings. They are dreadful.

    statistically one of the very worst offenses in CFB this year in pretty much any category you care to look

    and they haven't played a defense like OSU's yet while earning that dubious distinction

    We all keep thinking about Iowa and Purdue but you could see things that those two teams could do offensively (TE's and slot receiver extraordinaire) . NU is just totally inept. There is nothing you can point to and say they do this one thing well enough to maybe have a punchers chance.

    It would take a tsunami of OSU turnovers and penalties.

    Nope. Final.

    Bucks go with conserative run-dominant game plan, only put up 38.

    Fitzgerald pulls out a few gimmicky plays from his playbook and they hit one or two. Bucks bench their starters in the 4th and give up one late. I see this one going similiar to the MSU game. They dominate the ground game and bleed the clock. NW hangs for a quarter then the talent takes over. Buckeyes may not come out as sharp either, maybe peeking ahead to the Wisconsin game. They aren't going to score 50 every game even though they have the talent to do so.

    Northwestern’s last home game was Sep 21 against Sparty.

    I’m sure the grass has been watered daily and not cut for a month in preparation for the Buckeyes.

    Three reasons why the Bucks won't lose this weekend:
    1. We never lose on a Bye weekend before playing NW.
    2. Tomorrow is Saturday and I'm eating hard boiled eggs and beans.
    3. I like Jameson's.

    I picked 49-7 or 56-10. Your prediction is right there. I just don't see them sustaining drives. Maybe they get a non offensive score but their offense is offensive.

    Can't find a weakness in this breakdown.

    I actually like it just because it leaves my Saturday wide open to watch all the other games. But I concur, Buckeyes win 56-7. I also predict two defensive touchdowns. Northwestern's offense is as bad as it says on the stat sheet.
