The Buckeyes are 11-point favorites in The Game, according to Vegas Insider. When was the last time OSU won by double digits on the road against That School Up North? That would be 2015, when Urban Meyer hung a 42-13 loss on Jim Harbaugh in Harbaugh’s first season as UM head coach.
Meanwhile, Alabama opened as only a four point favorite against Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The cleanest path to the playoff for OSU would see the Buckeyes take care of business and Alabama also win out. The Iron Bowl is set to kick off at 3:30 Saturday after The Game.
