No. 2) The Ohio State football team gets four turnovers.
For as dominant as the Buckeye defense was last Saturday in Bloomington, they failed to produce a single turnover in the contest. Getting turnovers is a staple of Jim Knowles’ led defenses, and Ohio State should get an opportunity to get some this weekend.
Youngstown State isn’t afraid to throw the ball like Indiana. They won’t be content on coming to The Shoe and run the clock down. The Penguins put up 52 points in their victory over Valparaiso last week. These kids want to prove that they can play big-time college football and what better stage than Ohio Stadium to do it?
I think the Penguin coaches will let their kids play and that will probably mean that the Buckeye defense will get a chance at creating some turnovers. I fully expect the defense to be ready for them as I think they will get at least four on the day.
Look for the Buckeye pass rush to get home on Youngstown State quarterback Mitch Davidson, forcing him into some errant throws. The Buckeye secondary will have to capitalize on them, and I believe they will be on their way to a four-turnover game.
