Saturday night the Ohio State Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0 conf) will travel to High Point Solutions stadium to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (3-3, 1-2 conf) in what is a slow weekend in college football (as evident by this being a nationally televised night game). Both teams are coming off of big wins for their respective programs and will look to continue that momentum through the Big Ten schedule.
Rutgers has won two of three and have played their three best games of the year. Their one loss in the last three games was to then #4 Michigan State who they stuck close to and only lost by a touchdown, 31-24. Their wins came at home vs. Kansas and most recently a comeback 55-52 victory at Indiana.
This game wouldn't garner much interest if it wasn't for the change at quarterback for the Buckeyes. Many pundits expect the Ohio State offense to take off with J.T. Barrett under center and exhibit the dynamic playmaking ability that made them the first ever unanimous pre-season #1 team in the nation. This team is loaded and has been getting closer and closer to exploding as the weeks have passed. Unfortunately for Rutgers, Saturday night may be the moment it explodes.
