There isn’t much in the way of assumption that Buffalo is going to be able to hang in this game with the Buckeyes, and we really have to agree with that sentiment. The Bulls are one of the middling at best teams this season in the MAC, and they really just don’t have the horses flat out to stick around with Ohio State. Here’s the only issue that we have, though: 34.5 points is a whole heck of a lot of points!
Still, it isn’t going to matter. Five touchdowns isn’t all that much for a team that put 52 up on Illinois, 52 on Indiana, 63 on Nebraska, and 56 on Miami (OH). There is a great chance that QB Braxton Miller is going to account for five or six touchdowns on the day against the Bulls, and if he and his mates can get to 50 in this one, there is no doubt whatsoever that the Buckeyes are going to cover this incredibly lofty number. UB really wasn’t blasted all that often last season, especially out of conference, knowing that the team was beaten 45-23 against Georgia, but we aren’t buying this going forward. This is a brutally tough game for a young team that doesn’t have all that much of a program, and OSU should flex its muscle early and often to put this game away.
