The Ohio State football program heads to New Jersey to play Rutgers Saturday night, and all expectations are that the Buckeyes will advance to 8-0 as VegasInsiders.com had OSU opening as 20.5 point favorites.

The Buckeyes, ranked No. 1 in both the Associated Press poll, as well as the Amway Coaches’ Poll, are looking to stay undefeated and improve to 8-0, while Rutgers enters the contest at 2-4.

The two programs played last season in Columbus, and Ohio State clobbered the Scarlet Knights, 56-17. The Buckeyes went on to win the national title and returned most of the talent that helped Urban Meyer and OSU win the inaugural College Football Playoff.

So, why will Ohio State beat Rutgers. Well, Ohio State being Ohio State is a good place to start, but what fun is that as the crux of the argument?

These five reasons highlight why Ohio State will win when the Buckeyes play Rutgers this Saturday night on ESPN.
