    What I'm about to write here has nothing to do with what is going to happen on the field, it's all about history between Ohio State and Northwestern and a few records Ohio State is in the midst of. The Ohio State Buckeyes have been ranked 19 times (depending on what part of the OSU media guide you are looking at) playing in Evanston. They are 17-2 (0.895) in those games. Northwestern has been ranked 3 times while playing at home and are 2-1 (0.667). When both ranked (at Evanston) only one time tOSU is 0-1. When neither ranked tOSU has the edge 4-2-1. The game which both were ranked tOSU was #5 and Northwestern #11 beat the Buckeyes 21-0 in 1958. Since then the Buckeyes are 16-0-1 in regulation, we lost in OT so we are 16-1.

  Buckeyes are 22-0-1 when scoring 14 or more points in regulation, since the OT rule came into and we lost, that 1 could have been tie became a loss, so we are 22-1 when scoring 14 or more points in Evanston. The Bucks are 24-2 when scoring 10 or more. I'm thinking they are going to score in the 30+ range at which they are 14-0 when they do so.

Here's some records to keep an eye on:

  Passing 200 yards or more:                          Rushing 100 or more (Top 6):

342 Joe Germaine     at NW 1998               206  Eddie George   at NW 1994

281 Art Schilichter         NW 1981               190  Tim Spencer    at NW 1982

275 Jim Karsatas         NW 1985                180  Olive Cline          NW 1945

222 Mike Tomczak   at NW 1982                179  Jonathan Wells    NW 2001

211 Justin Zwick      at NW 2004                 173 Archie Griffin    at NW 1974

211 Jim Karsatas        NW 1986                 161 John Brockington NW 1970

I don't believe any of these records are in jeopardy, but I believe Miller and Hall could crack the Top 6.

Buckeyes are 5-0 for the 32 time. They are 26-5 in game 6. They are 14-1 at Home. Then lone loss was in 2000 when we went done to Minnesota at home (homecoming)for the first time since 1949. The Bucks when on the road are 12-4, losing to Case WR (1903), Wisconsin (1942), PSU (1997) and Wisconsin (2003). When the Bucks face Northwestern in a game 6 when 5-0 they are 5-0. When at home 2-0 at Evanston 3-0.

Buckeyes in October are 363-131-28 (0.722) over all and 122-66-9 (0.642) on the road.

When playing on Oct 5 the Bucks are 17-1(0.944) and 6-1(0.857) when on the road.

Buckeyes beat Northwestern on Oct 5, 2002 27-16 at Evanston which happens to be a year they won a NC.

On Oct 5 1968 the Buckeyes beat Oregon 21-6 at home, another year the Buckeyes won a NC.

On Oct 5, 1957 The Bucks beat Washington at Seattle 35-7, won another NC.

So you can see our calendar year matches up with 1957, 1968 and 2002 all NC years.

Beautiful.  Miller will be in the top 4 on that passing chart in my estimation.

Interesting!

we are 22-1 when scoring 14 or more points in Evanston.

I like the Buckeyes' chances of scoring more than 14 points and bettering that record to 23-1.
Tennessee Buckeye,
Nice piece and nice job with the spacing.
