The Buckeyes got a little scare put into them in Week 3 and will look to rebound in their Week 4 clash with Western Michigan.
Ohio State took on fellow MAC participant of Western Michigan, Northern Illinois, and was actually outplayed at times. Still, Ohio State survived for a 20-13 win and moved to 3-0 on the season.
This will be Western Michigan’s 2nd time playing a Top 5 team and come in with a little momentum following their 52-20 win over Murray State.
Kick off is set for 3:30 PM EST on ABC.
The Broncos came into the 2015 season being tabbed MAC favorites. While they show a 1-2 record, they have shown some signs of potential.
It started with their loss to #3 Michigan State 37-24. The Broncos gave the Spartans all they could handle and even gave themselves a chance had a couple plays gone differently late in the game.
However, they then suffered a major setback after getting routed by Georgia Southern 43-17. They did grab their first win last week over Murray State and will need a monumental upset to get back to .500 this week.
QB Zach Terrell has thrown for 8 touchdowns this year to go along with 947 yards. His downfall has been his interceptions as he has thrown for 5 of them already.
WRs Daniel Braverman and Corey Davis have caught 6 of those touchdown passes and accounted for nearly 700 reception yards.
There certainly weren’t many, if any, that believed the #1 team and defending National Champs would struggle with the NIU Huskies last week. Maybe the scare is just what the top team in the nation needed as they get set to try and silence some haters heading into their clash with WMU.
Head Coach Urban Meyer was very hesitate to name a starting a QB this week as Cardale Jones as shown some signs of struggles at times.
Jones is completing just 56 percent of his passes and has two touchdowns to three interceptions.
RB Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 331 yards himself on the season with a four touchdowns to his name.
Ohio State’s defense has been the main reason for them not allowing the opponents to stay in games as they’re allowing only 12 points against and 225 yards per game.
