Northwestern vs. Ohio State prediction:
The S&P+ ratings tab Ohio State as the nation’s No. 8 team. Northwestern ranks out at 78th, probably because they’re still a team who lost to 4-7 Akron. The Wildcats have a puncher’s chance, but the Buckeyes are peaking at the right time, and that’s bad news for any team to come out of the Big Ten West. Ohio State covers.
