Tomorrow, the Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the University of Illinois in their first Big Ten conference game of the season.
In comparison to the other teams OSU has played so far, this game will be much more of a challenge. However, if they Buckeyes go out on the field and play like they have demonstrated they know how to, cinching a win in Illinois should be no problem for OSU.
The Buckeyes have history, top players and a great coaching staff on their side to help them win this game. OSU may also benefit if one of Illinois’s starting guards, Hugh Thornton, is benched for the game due to an arrest incident that occurred last weekend.
This game will be close, but in the end Illinois will be the fifth team to fall to OSU.
