Bet on Ohio State vs. Nebraska

Scoring hasn’t been an issue for Ohio State on the road, as the Buckeyes have put up 49 at Indiana and 56 at Rutgers. Nebraska hasn’t necessarily been great on defense at home. The Huskers gave up 38 last week to a Wisconsin offense that is much more simple than what Ohio State can do. I expect the Buckeyes to continue to stack up the points without much resistance. I also think the Huskers will manage some points along the way, maybe in garbage time.
