If only Ohio State QB Braxton Miller hadn’t found Devin Miller deep down the sidelines, ahead of MSU’s Johnny Adams, for the go-ahead and eventual game-winning score …
My 16-10 prediction in favor of the Spartans last week would have been exact. And, I’m guessing, a lot of MSU fans would be a heckuva lot more enthused about the season.
I didn’t realize just how improved Miller is from a year ago (and, to be fair to my shortsightedness, even earlier this season). You apparently didn’t, either, because only one reader picked the Buckeyes.
That would be MD, who had OSU winning 16-13. So far, MD and GreenGuy are our two winners and early front-runners to be featured here after the season. At least seven games are left pick.
This week’s game at Indiana seems like a physical mismatch, but it’s hard to trust MSU after what happened against Eastern Michigan. And, given the injuries along the offensive line, I’m not sure the Spartans have the advantage they once might have there.
Defensively, though, MSU really ought to be able to dominate up front Saturday, with the Hoosiers starting two freshmen on the O-line, which doesn’t aide an uncertain quarterback situation.
My prediction will be in Saturday’s paper, but I see this as about a three-touchdown game.
How do you see it? What’s your final score?
