52-13 is my prediction. So I would take Ohio State to cover but through no fault of their own (or I guess the defense's fault) Illinois does not help them get to over 66.
Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours. We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!
Funny, I was coming here to say that I couldn't take the over on 66 b/c I could easily see a 52-13 final. I voted same as you based on that. Also, I'm also a Buckeye in Illinois. Are we the same person?
Doubtful, but I do love me Aaron Craft's rosy red cheeks. And to make a hypothetical quote from (former 11W writer) Sarah, "He is so dreamy."
It says that there could be wind gust of 30+ mph on Saturday with rain, so basically the status quo for Champaign...the only reason why I didn't choose OSU to cover the spread.
...or take the over.

Will be placing a wager on OSU -34 this Friday, for sure.
I got them at -32.5 earlier in the week
55-3 is my prediction. Ohio State covers easily, but they do not reach the over.

Fyi, the wind is supposed to be SSE @ 21 mph. I foresee a heavy dose of Mr. Hyde.
I think we may have a tough time covering 34 if the weather turns out to be windy (as it undoubtedly will) and rainy.
Edit: At least it will be in the 50's.

I went for the over 66. The thing with OSU is that if Guyton comes in for mop-up you still have a starting QB in place, so the offense doesn't lose much efficiency, if any, so the tendency is to keep scoring instead of bogging down. Hopefully the Buckeyes take care of business and this is what happens.
In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...
Under all the way. We drop at least 42 on them easy. I don't see them scoring more than twice if at all really. My guess 51-6
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
What's the money line? If available, bet a mill.

could see it being 42-10 or something like that...although 'style points' are key and all that jazz, I think weve seen Urban be more concerned with keeping players healthy and working on little things when the game is in hand than completely blowing up the scoreboard.
