History doesn’t really repeat, but it does rhyme. The Buckeyes head to Piscataway tonight looking to go 4-0 all-time against the Scarlet Knights. Since Rutgers joined the Big Ten in 2014, Ohio State has used the game as glorified scrimmage — going 3-0 with an average margin of victory of 46 points.
In those three contests, Rutgers has had no answer for J.T. Barrett — who has accounted for ten touchdowns through the air and four more on the ground.
Rutgers is improved this year, but look for more of the same tonight. Barrett shines, and connects on multiple deep throws as Ohio State pulls away early — 38-7.
