Ohio State Football: Scarlet And Game Round Table, Predictions Week 1

COLUMBUS, OH - NOVEMBER 26: J.T. Barrett /
2 of 6

On the road. Thursday night. Big Ten game. All the strange circumstances spell a slow start for the Buckeyes. However, it will be a quick, slow start.

Regardless of the coin toss, Urban Meyer will want the ball first. He will want his All American quarterback with the ball, and he will want to show off the shiny new centerpiece of his staff. Fans will be excited, then disappointed. The Buckeyes will stall out after two first downs.

In the first possession on defense, Indiana and Richard Lagow will probe the new secondary. They botch one chunk play and kick a field goal.

From there, the Buckeyes take over. They score on a drive under eight plays to take the lead. Indiana threatens again before the Buckeyes force a punt at midfield.

Score at halftime 17-3. The Buckeyes keep their foot on the gas and with a strip sack to start the second half. This leads to another score.

The Buckeyes end up with two picks from the new defensive backfield as the Hoosiers try to catch up and win 38-10. Good start, cover the spread, and solid stats for JT.

Now lets get to our Scarlet And Game Fantasy football guru.
