MARCH TO THE GAME: Things are lining up again for The Game to determine the best team in the Big 10. But before then, both That School Up North and the Buckeyes take on a pair of 5-4 teams on the road this weekend. That School Up North travels to play Iowa, the Hawkeyes are coming off a 41-14 loss to Penn State. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes travel to Maryland, who were no less than obliterated 59-3 last week in Ann Arbor. That School Up North opened as an 18 point favorite Saturday; Ohio State opened favored by 28 points. The cheapest seat on Stubhub for The Game November 26 is $230. Buy now, prices are going up.
