Saturday October 30, 2010 8:00 PM EST

Line: Ohio State -25.5

This Big Ten matchup features two teams with opposite records. Ohio State boasts a 7-1 record while Minnesota is 1-7 on the season. The Buckeyes look to continue winning coming off a 49-0 win vs Purdue. ┬áMinnesota started out the season with a win and haven’t won since.

Stats to consider:

Ohio State:

  • The Buckeyes are 7-1 with a 3-1 Big Ten record.
  • They are 1-1 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 14 (9th)
  • Points for per game: 40.8 (6th)
  • Passing yards per game: 244 (42nd)

Minnesota Golden Gophers:

  • Minnesota is 1-7 with an 0-4 Big Ten record.
  • They are 0-4 at home, all four games have been decided by 11 points or less.
  • Points against per game: 31.9 (100th)
  • Points for per game: 24.4 (79th)
  • Passing yards game: 246.1 (41st)
  • Rushing yards a game: 140.6 (76th)

What to watch for:

  • Ohio State ranks inside the top 10 in points for and points against per game. Minnesota ranks outside the top 70 in comparison. This will not be a contest as Minnesota has played two ranked teams and lost both by a combined 29 points.
  • Heisman hopeful Buckeye QB Terrelle Pryor has 1,775 yards 18 TDs and 6 Ints. His favorite target has been Senior WR Dane Sanzenbacher who has 591 yards and 8 TDs. These two will connect early and often.
  • Pryor is second on the team with 408 rushing yards and 3 TDs. Junior RB Dan Herron eads the Buckeyes with 520 yards and 11 TDs. Herron should be in for a full slate of carries as this game should be handled relatively easy by Ohio State.

As far as football picks go, this is a no brainer. Minnesota has not been a good program this year. They have competed in a few games, but expect them to be outmatched in this one. Ohio State will have no problems scoring points in this one and should haveno troubles shutting down the Gophers offense.
