Upset Alert

Ohio State are on upset alert!

After a week performance against Indiana in the college football opening week, Ohio State must play a lot better if they want to come away with the victory. They are ranked #2 in the AP college football rankings, but in our 2017 rankings going into week two, Ohio State is ranked #6.

Last week could have been a fluke, and Ohio State could have been sleeping through that game in-order to get a good look at the young players they have on defense. It was just Indiana, and Oklahoma should get Ohio State up and ready to play.

Ohio State defense will be going up against one of the Heisman hopeful, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield. Mayfield play is different from other quarterbacks Ohio State has played. The Buckeyes won last year’s match-up, 45-24, which makes them prime upset material.

Division II

#16 Midwestern State vs UWF

This will be UWF’s first ranked opponent of the year. Last week UWF offenses took almost the entire game to get going, so long that the defense had to spark the win.

If UWF decide to take their time on offense this week, the Argo’s might get blown out in their home opener. UWF must connect earlier with their receivers so that the running game for the Argo’s can get started.

Midwestern State had an excellent game last week on the grown, rushing for almost 500 yards on 39 rushing attempts. The Mustangs’ Adrian Seales rushed for 243 yards on 17 rushing attempts. To top it off, the Mustangs’ back-up running back, Vincent Jackson, rushed for 137 yards on just 7 attempts. Those numbers are very impressive for an opening game.

Although Midwestern State rushed for a lot of yards, I do not expect them to have the same amount of success against the Argo defense. The Argo’s held Missouri S & T to only 65 yards on the ground.

This will be a good test for the Argo’s to how good their defense, led by last weeks Gulf Coast Conference defensive player of the week,  is against a powerful running game.
