Sooners face different challenge in Ohio State

"They have a solid and next-level offensive line", Ohio State defensive tackle Robert Landers said.

"We just need to keep getting him the ball", said quarterback Baker Mayfield. That's why the conference has to establish itself early. "You saw it on everyone's face". "They flat-out played better than us".

And it will be fun to see how the Oklahoma receivers do against Ohio State's secondary. Florida Atlantic is 0-15 SU and 7-8 ATS in its last 15 games as an underdog of at least 7.5 points. After the loss, OU's locker room was turned on its head. Ohio State is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games against Big 12 opponents according to the OddsShark College Football Database.

There were players only meetings. Oklahoma thrives on it, and does it as well as any team in the country.

Workouts became more physical, teammates became closer.

If Ohio State-Oklahoma is a primetime shootout, though, the winning quarterback nearly certainly has to vault into the Heisman lead.

With the overall strength of the Big Ten at the top and in the middle, it's unlikely that any team will finish the year undefeated. 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.

Price is at the same time a solver of and a solution to problems for Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa. "That's like the M.O. of our team".

UTEP coach Sean Kugler knew what was coming.

Active region on sun continues to emit solar flares
The flare was so strong it was able to cause shortwave radio blackouts over Africa, Europe, and across the Atlantic Ocean. Large flares can create an event called a coronal mass ejection (CME), when the sun releases plasma from itself.

So, it stands to reason that with this year's hyped rematch at Ohio Stadium (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC) the Buckeyes are favored to win.

Tom VanHaaren: This one is tough because I thought Northwestern was going to surprise a lot of people this season. "You go into your shell or come out and shine" Mayfield said. "As a local broadcaster, we are keenly aware of the importance of serving our local viewers during times like these". "We really hate what we put on film".

A relatively young and inexperienced Ohio State team went into Norman, Okla., and manhandled the Sooners in a 45-24 victory.

Oklahoma carries the nation's longest winning streak of 11 games into the game between storied programs in one of college football's biggest venues. Northwestern looked shaky at times in its opening win over Nevada. As a defense, you go back and look at that. If Michigan and Ohio State fans don't root against each other, what can we really stand for in this world? OR gained more than 700 yards in its season opener.

Last year's loss to Ohio State has everything to do with this season.

Defensively, the Sooners had an easy afternoon of work in the week one win.

But the hurt remains.

"He's one of the best players in America, " said Meyer, who sees the game as a good early-season test for his team but downplays the big-picture significance of the matchup.

"I mean everybody that was here for last year's huge loss definitely remembers that", said Mayfield. And that's something we talked about during camp.
