Welcome to the seventh installment of Friday Night Fights, 2018.
This series is your opportunity to prove how clairvoyant you are regarding Ohio State's upcoming football fortunes. It also gauges how good or bad your #takes are, should you choose to defend them in the comments.
It's Week 7 and Minnesota comes to town. I'm sorry, did someone say
seven and Minnesota?
Let's check the results from
last week's Fights and the best #takes from the week:
Buckeyes landed on 49 and chose to run out the clock in lieu of adding additional style points.
The Hoosiers got to 26 and then sputtered, scoring and doing next to nothing in the 4th quarter. Hashtag: depth.
Weber and Dobbins
combined for 152 yards. Buckeyes cannot seem to get anything going on the ground anymore.
Nine flags for 82 yards. That brings the season total to 51 for 485, which is good for 119th in the FBS.
Michigan allowed a special teams score, but other than that Maryland looked like they were playing Ohio State most of the day.
Let's check some of the choice #takes:
"A bit of a hangover but nothing like the hangover against Iowa" is pretty much the epitaph of the Indiana game.
"Safely in the high 40s" is precisely what happened. Good take.
1. 49 points, within the range 2. Mid-20s, we'll round in your favor 3. Half credit 4. A+ sad prediction 5. Nobody's perfect.
Onto this week's Fights:
The Gophers have not beaten a Power Five program since Nebraska last season. Minnesota's defense is allowing 23.4 ppg and 324 yards. Sweet relief? Minnesota brings the FBS' 99th-best passing offense to Columbus. Let's play "Tate or No Tate."
College Gameday is in Ann Arbor for Michigan's annual Under-the-Lights game, where it's giving 7.5 points to Wisconsin.
