No. 2) The ground game gets going for the Ohio State football team
I believe this is the day when we finally start to see what this Ohio State rushing attack could become over the last half of the season. The offensive line has now had four games under its belt to start to gel. They also should be healthy and rested following the off week.
TreVeyon Henderson has been looking for a breakout performance and I believe this is the week for it. The Terrapins, while improving on defense, have given up some yards on the ground. Two weeks ago, against an awful Michigan State team, they surrendered 97 yards on 19 attempts to the Spartans Nathan Carter for a 5.1 average. Last week they gave up 147 yards on the ground to Indiana if you take away the quarterback sacks. This is a game where the Buckeyes can exploit this porous defensive line of the Terrapins.
And I believe they do just that as I foresee the Buckeyes gaining over 200 yards on the ground, including a 125-yard and two-touchdown performance from TreVeyon Henderson as he announces to the college football world that he’s back.
Look for Chip Trayanum, who has clearly established himself as the No. 2 back to get some nice yardage as well. But is that enough to keep Maryland from trying to pull off the upset?
