The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes open the 2013 season on Saturday in Columbus by taking on the Buffalo Bulls in the first-ever meeting between the schools.
Ohio State enters riding the nation's longest winning streak at 12 games last season and with Heisman Trophy candidate Braxton Miller behind center. The Buckeyes are hoping to kick-start a run to the 2013 national title game.
Buffalo, meanwhile, is coming off a disappointing season in which it went 4-8, but the Bulls ended the year with some momentum by winning three of their last four games.
Although the Buckeyes and the Bulls have never previously met, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn faced each other as coaches in the 2010 Sugar Bowl. Meyer led the Florida Gators to a 51-24 rout over the previously unbeaten Cincinnati Bearcats and Quinn, who had been serving as interim head coach after Brian Kelly had left to fill the vacancy at Notre Dame.
