The under is also 7-3 in Ohio State’s last 10 non-conference games. The Buckeyes annually have a solid defense and the Bulls will be stout on that side of the ball this year, too. Led by one of the top linebackers in the nation in senior Khalil Mack, Buffalo will return seven starters on defense and while Braxton Miller will find the end zone plenty of times this season, look for the Buckeyes’ offense to remain relatively quiet today.
