In-state opponents have been whipping boys for the Ohio State Buckeyes since...forever. That's not exactly expected to change on Saturday afternoon against the Toledo Rockets at The Horseshoe. However, Toledo are a much better team than Ohio State's Week 1 opponents, the Akron Zips, and should provide a much tougher challenge than their MAC brethren.
Toledo are expected to contend for a MAC title and a bowl game appearance this season, whereas Akron aren't expected to finish this year with a .500 record. Regardless, Ohio State are favorites by a whopping 18 points and aren't expected to have a whole lot of trouble. Quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Braxton Miller both looked excellent in Week 1 and will look to build on their good performances.
Game date, time: September 10, 12:00 P.M. ET
Location: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio
TV channel: Big Ten Network
Spread: Ohio State by 18
