I believe Ohio State has a slightly better-than-average chance of winning this football game on Saturday. Another way to look at this percentage is that if these two teams were to play this game in this exact situation and scenario 10 times, the Buckeyes would win six of them. If that statement is true, the question is then, which one of those games will we get on Saturday?
That’s why they play the game on the field and not on paper. There has been more talk on the television, radio, social media, and podcasts about this game this week than any other this season. It’s almost time to stop talking about it and let the game actually play out, and when it does, I for one will be on the edge of my seat living and dying with every snap.
This is why we are all college football fans. These types of games don’t happen often, and they happen even less between these two schools. This game is possibly college football playoff alerting and the stakes for both programs would only be higher if this game was being played later in the season.
This could be the kind of night where we look back on years down the road, and see this game as the moment in time that altered one or both of these programs for years to come. With that being said enjoy the heck out of this game Buckeye Nation.
