Crunch Time

After a disappointing loss on a national stage, No. 11 Ohio State needs to avoid a letdown on Saturday when it faces a dangerous Toledo team in Cleveland Browns Stadium at Noon ET.

Bet Ohio State vs. Toledo

The Buckeyes were defeated 18-15 by USC at home last Saturday night, which seemingly takes Ohio State out of the national title picture. The Buckeyes had just 265 yards of offense as quarterback Terrelle Pryor struggled in his biggest start to date. Pryor threw for just 177 yards on 11-of-25 passing with one interception while rushing for 36 yards. Ohio State turned he ball over just once in the loss, but couldn’t effectively move the ball, picking up just 10 first downs in the game. The Ohio State defense did keep the Trojans in check, but allowed a lengthy touchdown drive to USC in the fourth quarter.

The Rockets are coming off a 54-38 win over Colorado at home in a game where the Rockets offense dominated the Buffaloes, racking up 624 yards of offense. Aaron Opelt threw for 319 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 109 yards and two more scores. DaJuane Collins rushed for another 160 yards to lead the ground attack while Eric Page caught three passes for 138 yards. The Rockets have posted 85 points in two games, but allowed 90 as a defense. Even in last week’s win, Colorado have over 450 yards of offense, but the Rockets did force four turnovers.

Oddsmakers from online sports book BetOnline have made Ohio State 20.5-point favorites over Toledo on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 58.
