The Buckeyes get a final tuneup before facing Big Ten foes the rest of the way, and the RedHawks figure to pose little resistance. Look for the OSU starters to spend most or all of the second half on the sideline.

Here’s the real suspense: The RedHawks rank 128th in total offense and 89th in scoring offense; will they score any points against the Buckeyes' improved defense? Ohio State hasn’t had two shutouts in a season since 2014, when it was en route to a national championship.

Why sugarcoat it? The Buckeyes are that much better than the birds of prey from Oxford. I'd use the school name but want to protect the identity of the victims. Everything goes according to script, but of course the OSU coaches will find something to pick apart. "We should have scored 70"?

I think you heard Miami of Ohio's coach say it best: Ohio State and Miami of Ohio is like going out to recess where Ohio State gets the first 85 picks. They're going to be humming, the crowd is going to be great. Offensively, I think show up, and defensively it'll be another dominating performance.

As much as I would love to see Chuck Martin and the RedHawks give the Buckeyes a scare, I don’t think it’s going to happen Saturday in Columbus. Love and Honor!
