    Buckeyes get their doors blown off in this one. Maybe something along the lines of 49-28...and it may not even seem that close. I hope I'm wrong.

    This game can go either way, but I bet JA you don't feel as confident now as you did when we originally made our bet lol.
    Not at all!!! Lol

    A couple of the score predictions are surprising. The most points Michigan has given up all season is 24.

    With the way that this OSU team seems lost, at times not interested .. I can't confidently pick the Bucks to win. OSU has as good, better talent as anyone in the country but there has to be something going on within. All of the now well known troubles, accusations throughout this season seems to have taken it's toll on the team chemistry. Urban Meyer, to me anyway, seems to be having some kind of health problems, he (as our mom's would say) .. just doesn't look good. Personally, it wouldn't surprise me at all if this is Urban's last season as the OSU Coach. I have no inside info, rumors or anything. Is JMO.

    Back to the game. As others have said, in this one anything can happen. That team up North is and should be the favorite. Should OSU win, it would be close. Should the other team win, it could be anything, including a blowout. I'm just glad this one is at the Shoe.

    Ohio State wins by 3 scores. Pull away late, including a late defensive TD.

    Oklahoma loses, and OSU ends up in the college football playoff and then lose by 30+ to Alabama in the first round.

    I’m fine with that as long as everyone is rational about the fact that whoever gets the 4 spot is going to lose by 30+ to Bama. What I won’t be ok with is listening to people say Oklahoma, Michigan, Wazzu, or UCF would have given Bama a better game.

    The UCF argument is coming (actually it's here) and it's getting (has been) old.

    No clue on this game. Being in Columbus makes me feel like OSU pulls this out somehow. I know Michigan won at MSU earlier this year, but they haven't won a big road game since 2006.

    The thing with UCF isn’t really the team. I have nothing against the team, they play a really fun brand of football. What I have an issue with is the fans. They are trying so hard to convince us they aren’t an underdog. They should embrace the underdog role because everyone loves the underdog. Instead they are trying so hard to convince us they can actually compete with the Alabama and Clemson’s of the world when that’s just not true. But if they want to be treated as though they aren’t an underdog, that’s what they’re getting. People are now rooting against them like they do Alabama and Ohio State because the fans are insufferable. Then UCF fans have the audacity to ask why everyone is picking on them. This is what you asked for UCF, you asked to be treated like Bama and Ohio State and now you’re getting it. Contrast that with Boise State who has thoroughly embraced the underdog role. They never tried to convince us otherwise so America loved rooting for Boise State. People are begging for UCF to lose just so we can stop hearing about them already. It’s a shame their fans have ruined this football team.

    This will be close IMO and I don’t think it will be too high scoring. I’m thinking 24-21 or lower for the winner. Whoever wins likely won’t do so by any more than a touchdown.

    I routinely root against both teams, so I normally will find myself leaning one way or the other only once the game starts.

    I think this will be a high scoring game and I'm not sure Michigan can score enough to stay in it late.

    I still think OSU wins, say 42 to 38.
