Oklahoma Sooners vs Ohio State Buckeyes

Oklahoma Sooners vs Ohio State Buckeyes

-LB Caleb Kelly, a sophomore, figures to play a bigger role in this game due to his ability to move from the inside to the outside depending on what Ohio State is doing offensively.

Ohio State opened up the season with Big Ten play, picking up a 49-21 win at Indiana. Once again, Barrett was under center and stepped up his performance as the game went along. The Power Five conference with the fewest appearances in the first three years of the College Football Playoff (one) is on the clock.

Oklahoma comes to Ohio State in college football's Week 2 in a top-five matchup that has early season College Football Playoff implications.

"I could care less", said Mayfield when asked about a must-win.

Neither side is buying into the narrative, though, that just because the Buckeyes rolled a year ago at Oklahoma they are a shoo-in to win this one in the Horseshoe. The Sooners defense is tougher to know yet who they are this season.

Kohli's second straight century seals 5-0 series sweep
Or Kohli could include both at the expense of Shardul Thakur, though the skipper will most probably want the younger one to play. If he can reclaim some form in the T20, however, the argument for sticking around for a few more series might grow stronger.

Ohio State has a tough conference schedule this year, having to play both Penn State and Michigan State at home and Michigan on the road, with the Nittany Lions and Wolverines now ranked fourth and eighth in the AP Poll, respectively.

At least one Ohio State player recognizes the enormity of Saturday night. We will be previewing all the upcoming games for Week Two and discussing the contest's spreads and totals.

With the Heisman Trophy race and a national championship run potentially hanging in the balance, this is a matchup to relish. West Virginia also got off to a bad start, dropping its opener to Virginia Tech.

The Under is 5-2 in the Sooners last 7 games overall.

Murphy: Nothing in State College feels the same as it did a year ago, when the pitchforks were pointed at James Franklin following a loss to Pitt.

Refugee crisis: European Court of Justice rejects quota challenge
Since its introduction in September 2015, the quota system has fallen short of reaching its 120,000 target. Hungary has not accepted a single asylum seeker since the measures were introduced two years ago.

The most fascinating, and vital, matchup could come up front, with the Sooners' vaunted offensive line, ranked the best in the country by analyst Phil Steele, against the Buckeyes' stout defensive front, considered a top-three unit.

OU has won 11 straight since then, the longest current winning streak in the nation, and the lessons from that loss are both motivational and educational as Oklahoma faces the Buckeyes this Saturday. Mayfield is sharper, if that's possible. Mayfield averaged 10.2 yards per attempt (14.7 per completion) in those two seasons.

VanHaaren: Indiana attacked Ohio State's corners last week, passing outside the hashes on 86 percent of Richard Lagow's throws. "Without pressure there's no diamonds". MI also moved into the Top 10 from No. 11 after beating Florida, which fell from No. 17 to No. 22 after that loss.

This team hasn't lost a game since and the lessons learned from that Ohio State defeat still resonate today. We've never been here for a team to sing their fight song on our field. In one of the biggest non-conference games in recent memory for the scarlet and gray, the Sooners travel to Ohio State to take on the Buckeyes looking to redeem their embarrassing loss last season, when the Bucks dominated Oklahoma in Norman, 45-24.

"O-H, I-O on our field".
