Even though we have dominated the rivalry for the past 15 years playing up in AA is always difficult. The past 10 games in AA.
2013: 42-41. Game won on last play with Powell pick.
2009: 21-10. But it was a game where scUM was 5-7 and they had 4 tvs in our territory. Not domination by any means. In fact total yds were almost the same and Pryor threw for only 70 yds.
2007: 14-3. Beanie ran for over 220 yds in terrible rain/snow weather.
2005: 25-21. OSU needs 2 TD drives late in the 4th quarter to pull out the win. WE all remember the catch!
2001: 26-20. Tressel's first "game" Gets off to a 20-0 lead and hang on when Marquis Walker drops a late TD pass
My point being that even when we were a superior team, the games up north have been either losses or close wins. Even at home under Urban the games have come down to late points or def stops to win. Whatever the line is for this game, I will be taking the points cuz I believe it will come down to the wire yet again. I do think it will be the biggest reg season game of the year. Esp if we are 11-0 going into it.
