Ohio State RB Mike Weber Shows off Custom LeBron James Cleats

ESPN College GameDay returning to Louisville

ESPN College GameDay returning to Louisville

That couldn't be further from the truth. The Sooners' chance at the College Football Playoff likely rests with the result of this game.

Last November, Ohio State wore a football version of the LeBron "Soldier 10" shoe in their regular season finale against MI, which James and the rest of the Cavaliers attended. Watch that matchup. I agree with Dan that the Buckeyes will eventually get to Mayfield. No big deal, right?

This game will be an even bigger test for Ohio State's inexperienced secondary, which let IN quarterback Richard Lagow throw for 410 yards and three touchdowns on Thursday. Look for a closer game than in 2016, but still a Buckeyes win. Early results for the embattled league weren't encouraging.

Mike Weber, Ohio State's 1,096-yard runner in 2016, will return this week from a hamstring injury, giving the Buckeyes a one-two punch similar to what the Sooners had a year ago with Samaje Perine (Hendrickson) and Joe Mixon. The Nittany Lions are now the most entertaining offense in the Big Ten and have the firepower to blow past Pitt.

"Everybody who was here for last year's huge loss definitely remembers that". MI also moved into the Top 10 from No. 11 after beating Florida, which fell from No. 17 to No. 22 after that loss. It could have happened because of the conference's strength.

Tom VanHaaren: This one is tough because I thought Northwestern was going to surprise a lot of people this season. That means the league can't afford many non-conference losses if it wants to secure its hold on a playoff spot.

No. 11 Oklahoma State is a four-touchdown favorite, and there should be no surprises Friday night when South Alabama hosts a ranked Power Five team for the first time in its seven seasons playing football in the same stadium as the Senior Bowl each January. Despite going undefeated with enormous numbers in Big 12 play, the performance against the Buckeyes, and the 1-2 hole Oklahoma started in, made catching up to Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson impossible.

Once again, the only Group of Five team in the Top 25 is USF, which dropped from No. 19 to No. 21.

Rivalry week: Iowa isn't the only Big Ten team preparing this week for an instate rival.

Despite trailing in the third quarter in Bloomington, Ohio State barely had to adjust its offensive game plan. I think regardless of how the game turned out previous year, regardless of who won or lost, this is one of those games that both teams are going to be excited to play.

Fifteen players have earned top-10 finishes three times. Clemson 4. Penn State 5. Duke quarterback Daniel Jones can go toe-to-toe with Clayton Thorson in what should be a fun one in Durham.

This team hasn't lost a game since and the lessons learned from that Ohio State defeat still resonate today. Questions about who would step up to produce with big playmakers like Samaje Perine and Dede Westbrook gone were (mostly) answered, and other than losing Jordan Parker on defense, the Sooners came out of the 56-7 victory unscathed.
