Sound Off: Can Oklahoma revenge last season's Ohio State loss?

OSU Home Crowd

Oklahoma will look to avenge last year's 45-24 loss to Ohio State in Norman. The Sooners' chance at the College Football Playoff likely rests with the result of this game. ABC will be showing the contest for your viewing pleasure. The Buckeyes did shut out the Hoosiers in the final quarter, winning 49-21. Mayfield, who didn't even play in the second half during the season-opening laugher against UTEP, has accounted for 107 career touchdowns. "He said it was the right time and they had the right guy in place", Meyer said. In that game, Mayfield was 17-of-32 passing for 226 yards. As expected, Mayfield is a prime candidate for the Heisman heading into this season. On Wednesday night, Ohio State running back Mike Weber posted an image of what appears to be a new LeBron James 'Solider 11 Nike cleat to his personal Snapchat account. But if OU can't get the win - or takes another ugly loss - then an undefeated Big 12 schedule might not make up the difference in the end. He and Mayfield connected seven times for 134 yards and a score.

The combination of sophomores Abdul Adams and Rodney Anderson, junior Marcellas Sutton, and freshman Trey Sermon gained 170 yards on 27 carries against UTEP, but the holes they were running through were enormous. As a result, three of the crew found their way into the back of the end zone. In recent years, the Buckeyes have increased the prominence of their relationship with James, especially through his gear, with several players wearing LeBron Ohio State shirts and jackets during their road trip to IN last week. The three National Champions under the new system, Ohio State, Alabama and Clemson, have all finished their seasons with a single loss.

J.T. Barrett is a proven leader. Four of the last five games in this matchup have gone under. Another went for a 5-yard touchdown. The junior wide out has already eclipsed his 2016 season total of 121 yards. IN threw for 420 yards in Ohio State's 49-21 victory last Thursday, but most of the yards came in the first 2 1/2 quarters before the secondary began to play better. When the dust had settled, they had recorded five sacks and two interceptions.

After graduating with a degree in operations management this past spring, the fifth-year senior interned with the logistical operations team at Mast, an Ohio-based company that organizes and operates supply chains for companies such as Bath & Body Works and Victoria's Secret. Ohio State did lose a few key pieces from last season at all three of the levels.

Tom VanHaaren: This one is tough because I thought Northwestern was going to surprise a lot of people this season.

I could absolutely see an Oklahoma win. Hawkeyes fans let me know about it, so I'm not making the same mistake twice.

Compounding the Buckeyes' challenge is Mayfield's mobility. That could mean big trouble for a young and inexperienced secondary. Duke just threw up 60 on N.C. Central and had a relaxing time doing it. Ohio State is plenty capable of moving the football but to outscore the Sooners by a touchdown in this game is very debatable. Ironically, Norvell was also at that game. The over is ripe for the pickens', but I chose to bet on the underdog once again.

Ohio State opened its season last Thursday with a 49-21 victory at IN, covering at -20. Texas A&M is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games as an underdog of 3.5 points or less.

President Donald Trump spoke by telephone Friday, officials in Washington and Seoul said. Thousands of U.S. soldiers are stationed in South Korea and Japan.

The Over is 4-0 in the Buckeyes last 4 games on fieldturf. With Mayfield back, and the Sooners looking to replace nearly 80 percent of their rushing totals from 2016 having lost Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon to the NFL Draft, it is likely the Buckeye secondary will be getting a lot of work again.
