On The Mark, 9.10.14: Buckeyes vs. Kent State Preview

By @MarkW2112

Game: Ohio State vs. Kent State
Where: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH
Time:  Saturday 9/13/14 at 12 PM

After the embarrassing 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech last week, the Ohio State Buckeyes are looking forward to hosting the Kent State Golden Flashes this Saturday at the Horseshoe. While the Buckeyes can't afford to overlook any opponent from here on out, the Golden Flashes won't present the same type of challenge the Hokies did.

The Buckeyes offensive line will look to gel as a unit.  J.T. Barrett will try to bounce back from a topsy turvy performance under the lights of prime time.  And the defensive back field will need to continue working on their coverage skills which were glaringly lacking against the Hokies receivers.

This will also be the first game back for Noah Spence who was suspended the first 2 games of the year.  He and Joey Bosa will be fun to watch on the field together for the first time this year.

I expect a win for the Buckeyes but I also know the Golden Flashes will put up a good fight.
