It’s time to “black out” the Horseshoe and watch Wisconsin drop.

With CJ Stroud throwing to Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Marvin Harrison Jr., Emeka Egbuka, Julian Fleming and of course Farmer Gronk himself, Cade Stover will have no problem moving the ball on the Wisconsin defense. The Buckeyes’ running game will only help to keep pace with the rock of Treveon Henderson and Mian Williams (and maybe a few carries for Dalan Hayden here and there).

The primary objective of the offense will be to take care of the football. If they can play error-free and limit penalties, that should give the Silver Bullets the confidence to play quickly and aggressively to stop Wisconsin’s rushing attack powered by Braylon Allen. Defensive end Graham Mertz wants to see more black uniforms at defensive backs, which will introduce him to the green grass at Ohio Stadium.

Ohio State has all the tools necessary to win every game on the schedule. The only loss comes when the Buckeyes beat the Buckeyes. Execute and take care of football – the rest will take care of itself. Give me big Ohio State with this 42-17.

Have a nice Saturday, right?

Today’s menu. This weekend, most of the college football programs in the FBS begin their conference schedules, which means better games for Saturday and the rest of the season. I’m a fan of that. what do you think?

BACK TO THE BUCKEYES. Ohio State’s athletic department and football program Really He wants you to wear black to the Wisconsin game. I mean, I can’t stress enough to every Buckeye fan how much they want to be in the “Black Out” on Saturday.

Check out their Twitter activity last week to prove my point:

As a reminder, Ohio State is 3-0 when wearing black uniforms. The Buckeyes’ first win came against Penn State in 2015, followed by wins over Nebraska in 2018 and Michigan State in 2019.

Additionally, Ohio State went 2-0 against Wisconsin during alternate workouts. Wearing uniforms honoring the 1961 national championship team, his first win in 2011 was a 33-29 thriller. That race is over A game-winning touchdown pass Braxton Miller to Devin Smith late in the fourth quarter. The second was a 31-24 victory in 2013 in which the Buckeyes wore their “Rivalry” uniforms with chrome helmets.

My choices No game day skull session is complete without some college football picks. I feel confident about these, so go ahead and put the house on them. 2022 record: 4-5

  • Duke at Kansas (-7.5). College Game Day had to travel to Lawrence, Kansas for a battle between the undefeated Blue Devils and Jayhawks. Yes, that’s right. Basketball blue bloods are crushing it on the gridiron this season, and I love everything about it. I believe Lance Leipold will deliver a big win for Kansas in this one, so my money is on his team to win by more points.
  • No. 22 Texas (-6) at Texas Tech. The last time Texas appeared in my polls, the Longhorns gave Nick Saban and Alabama an acreage battle. This time, I’m picking Steve Sarkisian and Hudson Card (Or a healthy Quinn Ewers) to beat the Red Raiders by a touchdown.
  • No. 10 Arkansas (+2) at No. 23 Texas A&M Texas A&M’s offensive line hasn’t played well the past two weeks. Arkansas leads the nation with 17 sacks. Go Razorbacks.

Message from Johnny Ginter. For this blurb, I’m handing the keyboard over to a friend. Johnny Ginter. He has a message to share about Eleven Dubgate and Special Olympics Olentangy.

Hi, Johnny here- We want to thank everyone who came to Dubgate X today to support the Special Olympics. It’s a great cause and we’re extremely proud to partner with Special Olympics Olentangy. Recently, a former student of mine, Shane Rousey, shared with me some of his experiences with Special Olympics (and Ohio State!) and why they mean so much to him.

Coach Ryan Phillips and Shane Rousey

Coach Ryan Phillips and Shane Rousey

Hi, my name is Shane Rousey, and I’m part of the Special Olympics. I have been involved with them for 4 years participating in swimming, track and field and basketball. I have won bronze, silver and gold medals and had the best experience I could have asked for with this organization. The coaches and athletes are super nice and treat everyone like family.

Working for Ohio State helped prepare me for this experience. I started as an equipment manager trainee during my junior year of high school, where I learned a lot about inventory, shelving and preparing for practice. I was also able to volunteer as a special assistant “coach” not only for the defensive linemen, but for the entire team.

There I learned the different methods of training college athletes. It was an honor to work with the Buckeyes and it’s honestly something I hope to one day do as a career (or talk or write about sports).

Today at the Special Olympics I am beyond grateful to have this great opportunity to compete with these great athletes and coaches and to be able to call these people my friends. This company has been there for me since day one and I will never forget what they did for me. It meant a lot to me to be able to compete with such great and amazing people and I can make memories for a long time.

I am so honored to call Special Olympics my second family. It would be an honor if people could support this great organization, recognize us as athletics, and help us compete to the best of our ability. It would mean a lot to us if people could do that.

Thank you, Shane, and thank you all for your support today!

Eleven Dubgate is partnering with Land Grant Brewing today.

The mission of Land Talent Universities is inclusion. Ohio State students Adam Benner and Walt Keyes built Land Grant Brewing — their foray into the craft beer industry — on that foundation.

Let's spend money on LGB land donation beer

Their goal has always been to create an inclusive craft-beer environment that everyone can enjoy and to make craft beer more accessible through education in both the art and science of brewing, as well as a commitment to enriching our community – both pillars that define the land. – Give universities today.

From John Glenn International Airport to Columbus Crew games and Ohio Stadium, you can find Land Grant beers everywhere. Today, you’ll also find Land Grant Beer at Eleven Dubgate X.

Doors open at 3pm Eleven Dubgate XOhio State is in action this Saturday before their game against Wisconsin. This event relies on your donations, all of which benefit Special Olympics Olentangy. Cash and Venmo (@OSSOSTORM) are both accepted.
