Game Thread tOSU vs. Sparty, B1G Championship Game, Sat 8 ET on FOX

    The Buckeyes play a conference opponent after The Game for the first time since 1934.

    The only other non-Bowl game later than The Game since 1934 was against Iowa Pre-Flight in 1942. The Buckeyes' 41-12 win positioned them to win the team's first National Title, coached by Paul Brown. World War II enlistment decimated the tOSU roster for the next season, while Iowa Pre-flight would finish #2 in the final AP poll of 1943.

    This year is the ideal example of why the PAC-12 has a better CCG model by having the team with the better record/higher ranking get to host the game. It would also allow about 40,000 more tickets to be sold. The two B1G CCGs so far listed attendance figures of 64,152 and 41,620.

    The B1G should want to improve the chances of a team that is in position for a spot in the BCS Championship Game by having the higher ranked team play at home. That will still be true in future years when 4 teams are selected for a playoff. Wake up, Jim Delany, and try to help your conference win national titles. I've been beating this drum for a couple of years.
     
  5. Win and you're in. I see in no way OSU doesn't turn in their best game of the year.

    Let's hope it's their 2nd best effort. I'd prefer the best game of the year to be the finale.

    And I see no reason, in the end, that Sparty isn't Sparty.

    All true. The only consolation in this situation is that I hope the conditions in the dome lead to sharper passing by Miller.

    TheStoicPaisano But I didn't, so it doesn't

    How does the travel roster work for this game? 70-man like the regular season, or all hands on deck like a Bowl?

    Does anyone know if OSU will be in their home or away gear?
