The Big Me Kickoff puts the entire week of college football in focus with Bill Bender of The Sporting News. Sure, the Buckeyes are off to Rutgers to take on the Scarlet Knights, but the line is still north of two touchdowns and Ohio State is not going to lose to Rutgers.
Well, this might be one of the better Rutgers teams that we have seen since the Scarlet Knights joined the Big Ten. We talk about what Ohio State needs to do in this one and if the Buckeyes are still ‘The Team’ in the B1G.
Speaking of the B1G, there are some big games this week, something has got to give in the game between Wisconsin and That Team Up North. What can we expect there as well as a game between Indiana and Penn State, a game that launched Indiana into being a B1G contender last year and sent Penn State into a losing skid.
And nationally, there is plenty to talk about there with some top-10 matchups, can a favorited Cincinnati team take down Notre Dame? How about Arkansas against UGA? And of course, there is that game between Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide and Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss Rebels.
Buckeyes fans will be watching former defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley and his Boston College Eagles. Can BC add to Clemson’s woes and knock the Tigers out of the ACC race? The line seems to like the Tigers but nobody quite knows why.
So many games to watch but of course our attention will be with the Buckeyes. What game will you be watching? Be sure to let us know on the Ask the Insiders Board.
All that and more in the Big Me Kickoff, don’t miss out on a single word.
