The World Wide Leader released their high school football lineup for this season1 and of note to Buckeye fans are the handful of Ohio games that are part of the Herbstreit Series, an early September Colerain and Elder matchup and an October pairing of #2 Byrnes (SC) and #1 St. Thomas Aquinas.
Besides what should be a great game, that final pairing is the 2nd time we'll get a chance to see Mr. Frankenstein, himself on national television. Hopefully, by that second appearance, he will have committed to Ohio State after witnessing the Buckeyes destroy the Trojans in person. It's fun to dream a little at least.
