We have reached week four of the college football season, and most teams have gotten into the conference portion of the games.
But there are still a few games scattered across the college landscape that are still non conference games.
In this game the UNLV Rebels make the trip to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes. This is the first meeting of the year between the two teams.
The UNLV Rebels really should be 2-0 but they had a big slip up in week one against Howard. They were 45 points favorite but let Howard stick around and they were able to make the plays down the stretch to pull the upset.
Now the 45 point upset is the biggest upset point wise in college football history, so that is not something the Rebels really have to be proud of.
For the Rebels the strength of the offense is on the ground. So far this season they are averaging 350 yards per game on the ground while only throwing 206 per game.
The Buckeyes have a lot of big guys up front that the Rebels are going to have to compete against if they want to continue that success on the ground.
The one thing that the Rebels need to improve in this game to keep it close is the defense needs to play a lot better. They gave up 43 points to Howard an FCS level school that isn’t even expected to have that much success.
They had a mobile quarterback a lot like the Buckeyes, and that is something that really hurt the Rebels. They need to keep a contain on in this game to start.
Ohio State Buckeyes
On the other side of this match up is the Ohio State Buckeyes who have had one big slip up against the Oklahoma Sooners in week two of the Sooners losing by a final score of 31-16.
But they bounced back in a big way last week against the Army Black Knights. They won by a final score of 38-7, although that wasn’t enough to cover the spread of 32.5.
The biggest thing to come out of the week three victory over the Black Knights was the bounce back that J.T. Barrett was able to have.
People were calling for a quarterback change after the loss against the Sooners, but even if just for one game he looked like he should keep the job.
He threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns and had a completion percentage over 75 percent. In this game he is going to need to have another big game against a Rebels defense that isn’t very good.
If he doesn’t throw for around 300 yards in this game, it probably won’t be looked back upon as a really good performance.
