PAT’S THOUGHTS:

This is on my radar. You may have noticed – but Ohio State is really good. And they have beat Rutgers the last two years 114-0. And they will crush them again by the same. And for the second straight week I’ll kick myself for not backing the Bucks. What scares me? 80%+ is on Ohio State. The line is 35.5 now. Will probably get close to 40 by the weekend.
