College Football Games, Week 9: Peng State’s Upward War begins as Ohio State asserts dominance
This week’s clash with the No. 3 Buckeyes, and the 18th Nitani Lions starts 0-2 for the first time in eight years. Within a week of the Big Ten victim Its With the first loss (Wisconsin-Nebraska due to COVID-19), the urgency of the compressed season is great.
If Ben State loses, it’s hard to imagine beating Ohio State for the Big Ten East title. Nitani wants the Lions to win and hope the Buckeyes have lost at least three times. Ohio State will own a head-to-head tiebreaker and will be positioned in two games.
Maybe it’s more advanced than things. Ben State is in this situation because it did everything wrong to lose the starting player Indiana. It may be too much to ask to clean up all of those sins in a week against the state of Ohio.
Or it could be a precursor to a classic. Ben State has won the series once since 2011. But this game has been an exciting competition for the last six years. Ohio State has determined one goal or less in three of the last four games.
Last year the game was regular. Ohio State led 21-0, while Ben State advanced 21-17. OSU eventually won 28-17. The big thing is, the outer nits hung there.
That 2019 win ran the Bucks team up to three in a row. It started in 2017 and 2018 with a couple of results. Ben State came back from a 14-point, fourth-quarter deficit in 2016. It was one of only two Penn State wins at home against the top five teams since 1983. .
“We found a way to beat them when there were very few individuals,” said Nittani Lions coach James Franklin. “We played them on the wire, and sometimes those games that go on the wire, they can be very painful for anyone.”
Like everything else by COVID-19 it is a competition. People on both sides lamented about the empty Beaver Stadium. White out if empty stadium.
“I like White Out,” Ohio said in the All-America corner Shawn Wade. “It’s definitely a challenge. I love the competition. I love their fans.”
The feeling is not mutually exclusive. The state of Ohio has been better for so long against everyone in the Big Ten, which is boring. This explains the spread of 12.5 points.
Both teams are coming up with quick concerns. As the Franklin team runs behind the third string, it looks like a quarterback Sean Clifford He has taken on some of those responsibilities on his own. Clifford’s 119 yards is half the quick total against Indiana.
Heisman Trophy Final Justin Fields Ran 15 times against 35 points difference Nebraska. Part of that burden is explained by Major Deek or not Trey Sermon Ezekiel Elliott or J.K. Doppins. Fields may be Ohio State’s best runner-in quarterback. That’s right. He ran almost 10 times in a game last season, winning the Big Ten and taking the Bucks to the college football playoffs.
The NFL (and Ohio state types) may want to defend Fields as a bowler – he was 21 out of 21 against Nebraska – he certainly is not looking forward.
“A big part of playing quarterback is not making a second guess for yourself, except to make decisions,” Fields said this week. “கடி It’s hard to see the future. If you mess up this week, that opportunity will never come.”
Fields considers Saturday to be somewhat restful. He took a hidden shot in Nebraska – and the likes of the backward Cornhuskers – for using him in a pile.
“It’s definitely happened a little bit in the last game,” Fields said. When we play teams that are well-trained and have good teams, it happens less often and it can come with respect. ”
2. Texas Coach Tom Herman was asked about his playmakers. When a media member wondered how many longhorns were on the list, Herman paused for about 10 seconds before answering “some”. Some? It’s a project that is expected to challenge the Big 12 and college football playoff berth. Conversely, it’s number 6 State of Oklahoma It will have playmakers all over the field when the teams meet on Saturday.
Cowboys defense does not give 12 points per game. (Speaking to you, S.E.C. Alabama Ranks 64th in that category.) We know 10 starters are coming back to that D. These individuals are actually wreaking havoc. The unit averages 18 1/2 “destructive plays” per game (excuses, coping losses, forced stumbles, interruptions, protected passes). We’ll be there again: Alabama hosts an average of 14.4 such destructive plays.
The most powerful unit of the Big 12 could make a case for the defense of the state of Oklahoma Not Oklahoma’s crime. Mike Kundy’s teams tend to fade against tough competition, but Oklahoma State (4-0) always seems to be playing hard against Texas. Kundi has beaten Longhorns in seven games in the last 10 meetings.
3. Lady Luck and Coach Gus: If not for some lucky ones, um, bounce Auburn Will be 1-4. Instead, the Tigers got a 3-2 lead LSU The game, um, great luck because of some. In the beginning, Kentucky Quarterback Terry Wilson He threw a Big Six after failing to reconsider a goal that had been breached in a (non-touchdown) run. A few weeks later, Po Knicks Stumbling is not a once in a while attempt to spike the ball twice. Auburn somehow managed to retain possession and won late Arkansas. In last week’s review, Auburn’s return hit a kickoff, jumping into the final zone for what was judged to be a touchdown. (More on the following.) Gus Malhan is a God-fearing man, but does he have a direct line to the Big Hand? Both LSU and Auburn have not met for the first time since 1999. This is the SEC report on the CBS game of the week.
4. Mike Leach Jen Your Moment: “[Nick Saban] Not one of those sweater wearers. They like to wear a sweater, but they don’t really have it up to their neck. But man, coach Saban is a guy, it’s football all the time. Very firmly. “This is a coach’s preview State of Mississippi Saturday night at No. 2 in Alabama.
5. Oxford Deviation: Be Miss (In Vanderbilt) Has the second worst record at SEC (1-4), but by all means, let’s laugh about Lane Kiffin threatening Send his $ 25,000 fine to the SEC office in retail. Oct.
6. A player with a different root: We pause this crazy season to say hello to the Ohio statewide recipient Chris Booker. The senior walk from St. Louis may be the only player to brag about being a teammate of Elliott and Fields. Booker’s story surfaced this week when he was named Ohio State Special Team Player. He played football at Elliott High School in St. Louis and moved to Dayton Redshirting and Ohio for one season. Association Team. There is one thing that players have to pay for everything. Elite medical care has a low training schedule and no risk of injury. “The difference at the club is that we only train two or three days a week. The rest of the time, I had to hang out with the ducks. It felt like high school again.” Booker joined Buckeye’s Varsity team in 2019, where he revealed on Ryan Day that he was recognized in the hall. “What I have achieved is no less … it’s amazing,” Booker concluded. He will cover the kicks against Penn State.
7. Sadness of the Week: Rutgers Over Indiana (+12.5). Hey, Bruce Springsteen has just released his new album, why not some more New Jersey magic? The Husseins needed everything to bring down the state of Ben last week. In the only Big Ten game between the losing teams, seek to win back Shiano’s magic.
8. Clemson wins: For those who wonder how Trevor LawrenceA lack of consistency Positive COVID-19 test Affect Clemson’s college football playoff chances: Any Clemson team that wins the ACC with less than two losses will still be in the CFP. So, yes, if the Tigers stumble with newcomers DJ Uyagalili and Boston College – regardless of whether Lawrence will return – they will still be at a loss as an ACC champion. LSU 2007 was the only two losing team to qualify (and win) a national championship game in the PCS era (since 1998).
8. Quick kicks: If Clemson Beats Boston College, Which would have gone a full presidential election cycle without losing a home (27 straight games).
