The Big 10 takes to ABC in primetime as the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Ohio State Buckeyes Saturday night.
Ohio State comes in after dealing some off the field issues this past week as they were on bye.
Minnesota looks to avenge their heartbreaking loss to Michigan that saw them get stood up at the goal line.
Minnesota sat at 4-3 and 1-2 in Big 10 play as they entered their contest with the Michigan Wolverines last week. A win would push Minnesota to just 1 game out of bowl eligibility, but also keep them relevant in the Big 10 West for the time being.
After Michigan took the lead with under a minute to go, the Golden Gophers had their chance as they drove down into field goal range.
Eventually, they got the ball on the inch yard line and opted to go for it instead of kicking a field goal to tie. Michigan’s defense stood tall and threw back 2 run attempts as the Golden Gophers lost in heart breaking fashion.
QB Mitch Leidner finished with a career high in yards thrown with 317. On the season, he’s now thrown for 1627 yards with 8 touchdowns. His problems stem from his interception numbers as he’s tossed 6 to his 8 touchdowns.
The real problem for the Golden Gophers as a whole is their ability to find the end zone. Their offense is averaging just 21.1 points per game this year.
#1 Ohio State
The Buckeyes continue to be #1 in the AP Poll, but found themselves as the #3 team in the BCS Playoff rankings. They’ll still find themselves in if they win out, but now have to deal with a bigger issue.
QB JT Barrett was cited for driving under the influence this past week as Ohio State was on bye. Barrett has been suspended for the Minnesota game and may still be facing other pending consequences.
With Barrett out, that means Cardale Jones will get the call to start. After Jones dominated the three biggest games of the season last year, he was named the starter here this season.
Jones struggled at times and just didn’t have this high powered Buckeyes offense in sync. On the season, Jones has thrown for 1266 yards and has 7 touchdowns to 5 interceptions. Jones has the ability to beat anyone with his legs as well.
EB Ezekiel Elliot comes in leading the Big 10 in rush yards with 1130 and has ran for 100 yards in 13 straight games.

Minnesota’s offense poises no problem for Ohio State, its their defense that will give them some fits. However, Cardale Jones will have that ole chip on his shoulder as he has a lot to prove here after being benched.
