Stadium: Ohio Stadium
Line: Ohio State (-23)
J.T. Barrett messed up big time. Now, he has been suspended for a game and who knows what will happen for him after that. Luckily for the Ohio State Buckeyes, they still have Cardale Jones. Jones hasn’t had the season many fans were hoping for, but he is still a very, very good quarterback. Also, the Buckeyes will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers in Week 10.
Minnesota is just 1-3 in the Big 10 and it is also riding a two-game losing streak.
Although Barrett was making the throws for Ohio State in its last game, it seemed like the team finally did what everyone was waiting for, which is look like the best squad in the country.
More likely than not, running back Ezekiel Elliott will get a good amount of carries — because why would he not? The man is good for 100 yards every single game, and he should have no problem keeping that trend going in Week 10.
Jones is still an NFL prospect, so there is always that chance that he has a great outing as well. Plus, the Golden Gophers aren’t exactly the Buckeyes’ toughest test left of 2015.
Unfortunately for the Golden Gophers, they have the Iowa Hawkeyes after Ohio State, so their struggles will likely continue.
As for Urban Meyer‘s team, it will take on the Illinois Fighting Illini after this contest, and then things will get really interesting for the Buckeyes after that, because the Michigan State Spartans await.
PREDICTION: Golden Gophers 3, Buckeyes 28
