Though a must-win for both, pressure remains on Oklahoma vs

This game is likely to have College Football Playoff implications.

Quarterbacks play against defenses, not each other. Well, give me the exhausted cliche. Mayfield is only the 18 two-time top-10 finisher in the vote to return for another season of college football.

In the end, if the Buckeyes were to lose to the Sooners but go on to win the rest of their games, finishing their conference schedule undefeated and winning the Big Ten Championship, Ohio State would nearly certainly make their return to the College Football Playoff.

One of the great things about college sports is heated rivalries.

Yes, it's ridiculously early.

If Michigan slips up during the Big Ten season, such as at Penn State or at Wisconsin, it's important that the game against Ohio State is an opportunity for an elite win. MI also moved into the Top 10 from No. 11 after beating Florida, which fell from No. 17 to No. 22 after that loss.

If Mayfield can buy time to do the same, OU, and the Big 12, might be in business. The Buckeyes' passing game didn't get on track until the second half.

Neither player wants anything to do with that storyline. We've had some accuracy issues with J.T., but also the receivers. "No. It's going to be a huge matchup in the trenches". It was his debut with the third different offensive coordinator of his career in Kevin Wilson. Tight ends are typically covered by linebackers, but Ohio State may elect to use or involve a safety to defend Andrews or Calcaterra.

But mostly, it all springs from Barrett and Mayfield.

It's because of those questions that Saturday's game is another proving-ground game for both quarterbacks.

Barrett keeps getting disparaged. Washington caught six passese for 145 yards and two touchdowns. "So we gotta take him away". "Know when to take the risk and when not (to take the risk)". Ohio State did lose a few key pieces from last season at all three of the levels. The Buckeyes rolled 45-24. The two easily went over the 58.5-point total. "I think Phil Knight - the Nike CEO - Coach Meyer and LeBron, they're all for it". He's good after the catch, showing off some moves against UTEP that shouldn't be made from a player his size. Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 19 of 20 passing for 329 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Sooners to a 35-7 halftime lead. "Every facet of your team is gonna get put on display".

Last November, Ohio State wore a football version of the LeBron "Soldier 10" shoe in their regular season finale against MI, which James and the rest of the Cavaliers attended. The fabled "O-H ..."

Last spring, Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell told LandOf10.com that he wouldn't be surprised to see James' logo show up on the Buckeyes' actual jerseys.

Price and Elflein regularly practiced snapping after practices in past years and worked through the nuanced differences in footwork that come from the limited space in which the center gets to operate.

It's only Week 2, and making any definitive statements about the Heisman Trophy race this early in the season has proven to be foolish time and time again.
