The Kyle McCord era is underway for Ohio St. with mixed results. Ohio St. has yet to be explosive on offense but that should change on Saturday. Western Kentucky comes into this game after being a 41.5-point favorite. Now they are getting more than four majors, and that's a 70-point swing. The Hilltoppers are off a soft game vs Houston Baptist (52-22 win), and the difference in the speed from their last game is going to catch them off-guard. Western Kentucky has not run the ball well enough to take advantage of Ohio St. on the ground, and when a strong team doesn't have to use extra players in the box to stop the run, the secondary is going to come up with some plays. Western Kentucky has enjoyed a 6-0 turnover advantage in their first two games, and that's going to change after this one. Make the play on Ohio State.
