Once again the Oklahoma Sooners will take on the Ohio State Buckeyes. Both teams ranked again, however this season both teams are in the top 5.
It is only week 2 but if you are either an Oklahoma Sooner fan or an Ohio State Buckeyes fan, a game with these kind of implications on the line, this game is anything but a normal week 2 matchup.
Ohio State had a very rough and shaky win over Indiana in week one, but has had plenty of time to prepare for Oklahoma. In the first half of the Buckeyes game against Indiana the Buckeyes offense looked like they were in complete disarray. However, that could have been expected with a whole new offense being installed in the offseason.
Oklahoma moved up 2 spots in the AP poll after USC almost fell to Western Michigan, and Florida State lost to top ranked Alabama. The Sooners however steam rolled their way to a victory last week against UTEP.
Mayfield finished with 329 yards and three touchdowns on 19 of 20 passing. All in the first half too. Mayfield didn’t step foot between the white lines in the second half. Granted it was against a team that was only 4-8 a year ago but a win is a win.
Last season fans remember the Oklahoma/Ohio State game as kind of beat down in favor of the Buckeyes. While it would be nice to see the same thing happen in 2017, it is doubtful that is going to happen again.
However, this are 5 things you can watch for this weekend.
