Key Injuries: No significant injuries reported for either team that should impact this matchup

Who We Like: This game could be tricky for Ohio State. The location isn’t helping, as South Dakota State may be able to travel some of the fan base while Ohio State isn’t likely to do the same. The Buckeyes had a great season, but they have lost three of their last five, going just 1-4 against the spread. They also haven’t played in two weeks, so I can see a slow start happening. The Jackrabbits have won 10 straight and 18 of their last 19. I think they have the potential to pull off the upset.
