Ohio State Week 8: Northwestern


Two years ago, Ohio St. was upset by the Hawkeyes in Trap City, USA, Kinnick Stadium.

Last year, Tyler Trent inspired the often pathetic Purdue Boilermakers to stun the Buckeyes in West Lafayette.

This year, the Buckeyes travel to Evanston, Illinois to take on the Wildcats on an unorthodox Friday night.

There's no way that it happens this year right?

The Wildcats are 1-4 with 0 conference wins so far this season. They rank 128th in scoring, 123rd in passing yds., and 80th in rushing.

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes are coming off a bye week, are undefeated, and are led by an explosive Justin Fields on offense. Oh, and Chase Young is wrecking people on the defensive side of the ball.

There's no chance, right?

Jeremy Birmingham of Lettermen Row joined Anthony Bellino on the Fox Sports Morning Blitz to preview the Buckeyes' match-up against Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats.
