Ohio State vs Oregon live score, updates, big ten-pac-12 marquee game highlights
The Oregon No.12 faces his toughest test of the season when the Ducks travel to Columbus, Ohio to face the Ohio State No.3 – not good for a Ducks team that needed four quarters to beat Fresno State 31-24 in Week 1.
But then the Buckeyes face the same situation; they got Minnesota’s best shot in their season opener, only sealing the game with a 61-yard touchdown connection between CJ Stroud and Chris Olave with less than five minutes to go. The Buckeyes won 45-31 but, as the score suggests, this Ohio State defense is likely to give points.
That’s good news for Oregon, who just finished a game in which they only amassed 358 yards. Anthony Brown, who completed 15 of 24 passes for 172 yards against the Bulldogs, will need to have a considerably better game if Oregon is to have a real shot at beating Ohio State. If he improves from Week 1, he could lead the Ducks to their first series victory over Scarlet and Gray in 10 tries.
Likewise, look for Stroud to correct some small errors and precision issues against Minnesota. Whether Oregon can put pressure on him will go a long way in determining how he plays. To that end, the loss of defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux and linebacker Justin Flowe could be a huge blow to Oregon’s defensive success.
