College GameDay reveals location for Week 3

ESPN College GameDay returning to Louisville

In the end, if the Buckeyes were to lose to the Sooners but go on to win the rest of their games, finishing their conference schedule undefeated and winning the Big Ten Championship, Ohio State would nearly certainly make their return to the College Football Playoff. However, Baker Mayfield and numerous Sooner starters got lots of rest after they got pulled from the game at halftime. Quarterback matchup? It's not only a exhausted cliche, it's also inaccurate. Senior end Tyquan Lewis, was the Big Ten Conference Player of the Year in 2016. While Oklahoma has a variety of receiving options, there isn't a true established receiving threat yet. J.T. Barrett threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 61 yards and a score. Washington caught six passese for 145 yards and two touchdowns. He accounted for 365 total yards in the game, bringing his career total to 9,211 yards, a school record.

The team officially introduced the LeBron Soldier XI Cleat on Thursday afternoon, and some Buckeyes will be lacing them up Saturday night before they take the field against the Sooners.

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.

Top-tier matchups like the one between Ohio State and Oklahoma set the tone for how conferences are perceived. Even when Weber returns at 100 percent this week, expect to see plenty of Dobbins throughout the season. 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.

Despite dominant victories, the Oklahoma and Oklahoma State football teams are headed in opposite directions in the Associated Press Top 25. The receptions that were big gainers were of the catch-and-run variety.

Oklahoma's defense is going to have to play heads up on Saturday.

The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. CT kick off from Columbus. I thought they were one of the best teams in America offensively a year ago.

And they haven't lost since then. They are riding the nation's longest ongoing win streak, an 11-game stretch that started the week after they fell to the Buckeyes 45-24. Andrews believes that experience can make him a key target, like Westbrook last year and Sterling Shepard the year before. "And we talked about it during camp. Quite frankly, it's just embarrassing".

Furthermore, Oklahoma will field a a skilled secondary that will give J.T. Barrett and the Buckeyes a tough time through the passing game. "Regardless of how that game turned out, this is one of those games both teams are excited to play". "They had at me three different positions, so I couldn't just hide in my shell at one. We're gonna have to play a helluva lot better than we played a year ago". "That will be our main focus".

News of Eason's injury led Notre Dame to open as a 6.5-point favorite at home, but that line has been bet down to Notre Dame -4.5.

Ohio State could very well lose a Big Ten game before it travels to Ann Arbor, so this weekend's game against Oklahoma could be the difference between MI facing a top-five team and a team ranked closer to 10.

"It's a long time to play with a quarterback, so I definitely feel like we have that chemistry to be able to do that", he said. "It's all about right now".

Not since the start of the College Football Playoff era has a team been able to complete a ideal season.
