Saturday, for the 14th consecutive season (dating back to 1997) Ohio State will face an in-state foe, as the Buckeyes welcome the Ohio Bobcats to Ohio Stadium.
The last time the Bobcats came to town, in 2008, they gave the Buckeyes a run for their money, leading 7-6 at halftime and 14-12 with 14 minutes remaining in the game before Ohio State scored the last 20 points to win 26-14.
This time around, Ohio will be going for its 500th victory in program history and what better way to get it than by beating the No.2 team in the country and your mighty big brother, so-to-speak.
Although the Bobcats are led by 5th-year senior quarterback Boo Jackson, who did play in the 2008 game, and are gunning for their 500th victory, they are a 30-point underdog and Ohio State has not lost to a school from Ohio since 1921 when the mighty Yeomen of Oberlin defeated them 7-6.
This one just doesn’t have that upset feel to it.
While an upset may not be worth looking for in this game, here are 10 things that are.
