It’s a top ten match up on Saturday night, and will probably end up being the biggest game of the weekend.
The number six ranked Oklahoma Sooners make the trip to Columbus to take on the number two ranked Ohio State Bobcats.
These two teams have played three times and the Buckeyes have won two of those match ups including the game last year.
The Oklahoma Sooners have an easy game to open their season, and a lot of the reserves got a lot of playing time in it.
They played the UTEP Miners to kick off the season and finished with a 56-7 record. Baker Mayfield was on his game against the Miners.
He threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns but the most impressive part might have been his completion percentage. He completed 95 percent of his passes.
On the offensive side to have success in this game Mayfield needs to have another nice game, but it’s going to come down to the running game.
They need to get the ball going on the ground, and the good news for the Sooners if they have three or four guys who should be able to rotate in this game.
On the defensive side of the ball the defense looked good in their first game, but the real test is going to come in this game.
They need to be physical and really try to get in the back field early and often.
Ohio State Buckeyes
On the other side of this match up is the Ohio State Buckeyes who had a scare for about a half in their first game of the season.
They were trailing to the Indiana Hoosiers for much of the first game, but in the second half they turned on the jets and cruised to a 49-21 record.
JT Barrett started out slow in the first half and that led to a lot of the struggles by the Buckeyes. But in the second half he was strong and finished the game with 304 yards passing and three touchdowns.
In this game the Buckeyes are going to need Barrett to be good again. This game will probably be a shootout and Barrett is going to need to keep his game in it.
The Buckeyes will also be getting a big boost in this game. Running back Mike Weber is fully healthy and will be back to add another guy to pound the rock.

Vegas really doesn’t like the Sooners chances to keep it close in this game, but I really do.

I think Baker Mayfield will have a huge game in this one, but it won’t be quite enough. The Buckeyes will win the game, but the Sooners will keep it close.
