How to watch Florida A&M vs. Ohio State 2013: Preview, TV schedule, odds and more

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes finish up non-conference play with an FCS opponent.

No. 4 Ohio State continues their trek through the non-conference portion of the schedule, hosting FCS school Florida A&M after home victories over Buffalo and San Diego State, and a "road" win over a struggling Cal team. Ohio State has won each of their first three games by at least two scores.

Those scorelines can tell you offense has not exactly been an issue for the Buckeyes, but giving up 20 points to Buffalo (granted, seven on an interception) and 34 to Cal (Bear Raid or not) may worry some Buckeye fans. Giving up more than 10 points to a Rattler team that is 1-2 in FCS play may be considered disastrous.

This may also be the debut of the Buckeyes' rumored two-quarterback offense, as Braxton Miller is likely to return in the game.

Television coverage begins at noon ET on Big Ten Network.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Ohio State is ranked fourth in the AP Poll and third in the Coaches' Poll. This is the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Vegas: Ohio State is a 57-point favorite. OddsShark has more.

Weather: The weather should be nearly perfect. Columbus expects a high of 75, partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain.

Three names to know

Noah Spence. The OSU defensive end is tied for the Big Ten lead in sacks, and will look to give the Rattler backfield fits on Saturday.

Braxton Miller/Kenny Guiton. No one really knows how Urban Meyer will organize his two quarterbacks, but it will certainly be something to watch.

Jordan Hall. The Buckeye running back is third in the Big Ten Conference with 134 yards rushing per game, and can expect to see a lot of carries early.

Two things at stake

Ohio State will be defending the nation's longest winning streak, having won its last 15 games.

If Florida A&M somehow emerged victorious, it would likely be the biggest FCS/FBS upset in history, even surpassing Appalachian State's win over That School Up North.

How to witness

TV: Television coverage begins at noon ET on the Big Ten Network. Matt Devlin, Glenn Mason, Lisa Byington will be on the call.

Radio: Local radio coverage in Columbus is available on 97.1 FM/1460 AM The Fan. Here's a list of other Ohio State radio affiliates.
