Ohio State's first game under Urban Meyer kicks off in just a few short days as the Buckeyes prepare to square off against in-state rivals Miami University.

The game shouldn't be terribly difficult for Ohio State to win, despite what Urban Meyer might suggest; the Buckeyes are heavy favorites and should be physically superior to the RedHawks.

So since nearly every Big Ten team could beat Miami University handily, this is the type of game where OSU fans should be looking beyond just the score for certain indications that the Buckeyes are on track for a successful year in 2012.

So what exactly should OSU fans watch for? Big Ten lead writer Adam Jacobi and lead college football writer Adam Kramer break down the upcoming game in this edition of The Program.
