Throwing to the tight end remains a foreign concept in Ohio State's offense.

The team officially introduced the LeBron Soldier XI Cleat on Thursday afternoon, and some Buckeyes will be lacing them up Saturday night before they take the field against the Sooners. Predicated on tempo, Ohio State's offense can move only as quickly as its linemen. Of course. Should they be?

Oh, one other thing might be at stake. A Heisman-like performance from Barrett leads the Buckeyes to the big win. Ohio State will be the talk of the country, but it's actually the best long-term scenario for the Wolverines. Mayfield is only the 18 two-time top-10 finisher in the vote to return for another season of college football. That couldn't be further from the truth.

"There are times when we push it down the field, " said Barrett, who must be tired from constantly having to defend his performance (he's 27-4 as an Ohio State starter).

Ohio State can not come out like this against Oklahoma. The Buckeyes' passing game didn't get on track until the second half. No big deal, right? MI jumped OSU to No. 8 after a win against then-No.

Every aspect of the game environment will differ from Saturday's blowout at Owen Field, from the College Football Playoff implications, to the challenges of playing on the road in Ohio Stadium, to dealing with the massive spotlight. Wisconsin's Troy Fumagalli (seven catches, 84 yards) had a nice game against Ohio State in 2016. The Big 12 is desperate for a pick-me-up. That's why the conference has to establish itself early.


Last September, Ohio State visited Oklahoma and won easily, 45-24. It's the longest streak among power-five teams. Andrews believes that experience can make him a key target, like Westbrook last year and Sterling Shepard the year before.

The team and the program Oklahoma was a year ago at this time has changed. That means the league can't afford many non-conference losses if it wants to secure its hold on a playoff spot. In doing so, he became the closest thing to a governor on the racecar of an enhanced offense that Urban Meyer & Co. are hoping to import from southern IN along with new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. Freshman running back J.K. Dobbins made his debut against IN with a dominant performance, and he has been pointed to as a player with the potential to have a big impact this season. Texas lost at home to Maryland despite being ranked in the preseason top 25.

Baylor also lost at home to Liberty. West Virginia dropped its one hard non-conference test, to Virginia Tech. East Carolina (0-1), Sat.;Mountaineers were only Big 12 team that looked good in defeat, rolling up 592 yards vs. Va. Tech. A night game in Columbus will be hard to beat and the electric atmosphere of week one will be to the Buckeyes' advantage, as opposed to Oklahoma's cakewalk last weekend with UTEP.

MI was so highly regarded because of its schedule strength and wins over teams that worked their way into the top 10. A four-star recruit who picked the Terrapins over Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State, Hill is ready. That list includes the 15 in the above chart, plus Saint Mary's - and future "Hawaii Five-O" - star Herman Wedemeyer and Ohio State's Braxton Miller, neither of whom finished in the top 10 in their final season.

This Ohio State team came out swinging a year ago and the Sooners didn't know how to counter then. In that affair, Ohio State struggled to get anything going in the first half but turned on the jets and blew out in in the second.

College football is built on a foundation of irrational fanhood and hatred between rivals. "It's not really a matchup between us". Jerome Baker returned one pick 68 yards for a score.
