In a PGA Tour event, Saturday is known as "moving day" because it's when participants try to climb the leader board and put themselves in contention for a victory on Sunday. We don't know the handicaps of Dispatch OSU football beat writers Bill Rabinowitz and Tim May -- other than the occasional split infinitive -- but this Saturday could be their day to mount a charge.

We don't know the handicaps of Dispatch OSU football beat writers Bill Rabinowitz and Tim May -- other than the occasional split infinitive -- but this Saturday could be their day to mount a charge.

May, trailing The Dispatch's Rob Oller by three wins for the top spot among the BuckeyeXtra panel of college football pickers (BXPOCFBP), can pick up two victories on the field if Minnesota (vs. Nebraska) and Arkansas (vs. Mississippi) post victories. Rabinowitz, four wins out of first place, also can pick up a pair if Maryland (vs. Michigan) and Louisville (vs. Notre Dame) win.
