OU GAMEDAY: Comparing Oklahoma, Ohio State by position group

Oklahoma was not yet the team that would run the table after that night, and the Sooners look like they've picked up this season right where they left off. Ohio State, meanwhile, showed some vulnerability last week, allowing 437 yards of offense to Indiana. Every single game matters from the very first kickoff - just ask teams such as Florida, West Virginia and Texas, which basically have to win out to have a chance at the College Football Playoff. Here's our forecast for Week 2.

They have Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, who will rotate between linebacker and defensive end. Wisconsin's Troy Fumagalli (seven catches, 84 yards) had a nice game against Ohio State in 2016. "Wins are hard and we appreciate this one and it was a fun one". They gave me my extra year back. "They had at me three different positions, so I couldn't just hide in my shell at one". Week 1 against Nevada was a win, but it wasn't very convincing. IN chose to air it out, throwing 68 times against OSU.

Sherman: This series often defies logic.

Oklahoma State dropped a spot in the latest Associated Press Poll, which was released Tuesday.

With Oklahoma coming to town (7:30 p.m. ET Saturday, ABC), however, the second impression should be pretty definitive. There's more magic in store for the Cyclones this year. The over is ripe for the pickens', but I chose to bet on the underdog once again. Hawkeyes fans let me know about it, so I'm not making the same mistake twice.

Barrett, meanwhile, seemingly worked out the kinks in the passing game with the receivers, and he responded to comments from in coach Tom Allen by saying, "I'm an accurate quarterback". Ohio State did lose a few key pieces from last season at all three of the levels. They'll hold the Cyclones to 100 or so yards on the ground and provide plenty of cushion for the offense to bring home a win.

"Everybody who was here for last year's huge loss definitely remembers that".

They can not afford to lose to a Big Ten opponent. Baker Mayfield threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns on 19-of-20 passing. Pitt won last season running behind James Conner. "He's much better now".

If Mayfield can buy time to do the same, OU, and the Big 12, might be in business. Do that against the Ducks and OR will turn those short receptions into long touchdowns.

"I don't think we were urgent at that point in time a year ago", Brown said.

VanHaaren: Oregon put up 77 on Southern Utah in the first week. If OU is to pull a slight upset in this game, a solid early lead would be the best way to pull that off.

Murphy: No need to overthink the math here.

Coaches are fond of saying one season doesn't have anything to do with another.

At least one Ohio State player recognizes the enormity of Saturday night. Baker Mayfield ranks first in completion percentage, yards per attempt and touchdown percentage on throws outside the hashes, but I think Ohio State is going to learn from the first game and win this game against Oklahoma. Tight ends are typically covered by linebackers, but Ohio State may elect to use or involve a safety to defend Andrews or Calcaterra.

In all, Oklahoma returns nine starters on offense. He helped track the worldwide shipping routes for those companies and got an inside look at the hundreds of unseen decisions that go into setting up flagship retail locations for huge companies.
