    The Gophers come to The Shoe, where they haven't been since 2009.

    What's the most night games tOSU has played in 1 season? If the game vs Sparty is a night game as well this would be 5 in 1 season most that I can remember.

    06 with troy had a few I thought... but night games are a UFM thing as he likes them for the recruiting.

    This game will be awful. They have no offensive threat and our offense is looking to make up for lost games early in the season.

    If minnesota scores it'd be a let down... they're that bad on offense.

    buxfan4life The future's so bright, I've gotta wear... shades.

    Awesome. Will be in the Disney parks that weekend and a late game fits nicely in with the schedules.

    Minny is currently a 10 point dog at home to scUM

    I'm guessing a 28ish point line for a road game at OSU, maybe more

    Bucks will cover

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Minnesota is likely going to be limping a bit by the time they make it to Columbus after their matchup this weekend.

    yep

    Illinois is the sneaky kind of "trap" game left, Minny will be an ass beating of the first order. Think Penn State with less defense and less offense.

    Just two: @Texas and @Iowa. All others were 12:00 & 3:30 kicks. It was pretty standard under Tressel to have one or two per season, and that was what Urban inherited his first season.

    Since Urban arrived there were two in 2012 (UNL & IU), three in 2013 (UW, @NW, PSU), and four in 2014 (VT, @PSU, ILL, @MSU) with kickoffs in the 7/8 slot. There were also a few non-traditional times such as 2012 @PSU (5:30 est), 2013 @cal (4:30 local, 7:30 est), and 2014 Cinncinnati (6:00 est).

    This season appears to not only have four (@VT, PSU, @RU, MINN), but all four games are nationally broadcast on ABC, and the option is still open for ABC to pick up MSU for a fifth Ohio State prime time game.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Rutgers actually has a decent offense, if not a good offense.

    Minny is a watered down version of the Penn State/scUM defense first kind of team.

    problem for them is the defense is pretty average and the offense has fewer threats than Penn State so all in all, OSU is a nightmare matchup for them.

    Which I cannot believe the MSU game won't be a prime time game as well... Both will be top 5 teams at that point.
