You know it’s real when the staff picks show up. How does everyone here see the game going? Well, I’ve only read my own picks, but I’m assuming there’s going to be a whole lot of Scarlet and Gray pickin’ going on. Which players will be picked to shine? Will there be any random predictions? Is there a hater among the bunch? Read and find out.

Tony Gerdeman

I don’t know if Dwayne Haskins will throw for 300 yards this week, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to have at least 230 yards passing in the first half. Expect Parris Campbell to have 100 of that.

The Buckeyes will do what they want in the run game, and we might even see a freshman go over 100 yards in this one.

Defensively, the Buckeyes will have to tackle because quarterback Jake Luton will be getting rid of the ball quickly. I don’t see Oregon State running the ball well, or doing much of anything well. They may punt nicely.

They will not block Nick Bosa all that well.

After one of the more bizarre and controversial lead-ins to any season in Ohio State history, the Buckeyes and their fans finally get to actually enjoy a few hours of football. Given the nearly month-long media blackout, we have even more unanswered questions than normal this year.

The left tackle spot is still unsettled and we’ve never seen the five projected offensive line starters play together. Dwayne Haskins is a first-time starter. No one outside of the program has ever seen Tate Martell take a “live” snap, and it’s not clear how he’ll be deployed.

The passing down package for the defensive line, known as the Rushmen, still isn’t set. Is Tuf Borland going to play? How settled is the depth chart at linebacker? Is Isaiah Pryor really set as the starter opposite Jordan Fuller, as the depth chart suggests? Or will Pryor and Jahsen Wint rotate, as Greg Schiano said?

Is this the year Demario McCall finally makes an impact on special teams? What will the Buckeyes do about the new kickoff rule?

Fortunately for Ohio State, there is one question that has a definite answer. Is Oregon State an even remotely competent opponent? No. No, they are not.

Ohio State 48, Oregon State 6

Caroline Rice

This game will show the strengths of the Buckeyes. We’ll be able to see how this Ohio State team looks with all of the changes that have taken place. This will be a good opportunity for the Buckeyes to test their offense out a bit and see what they are made of with Dwayne Haskins behind center. I’m expecting a huge game for Haskins as well as J.K Dobbins and Mike Weber. The Beavers have a very weak and thin defensive line that will not be able to stop the Buckeye offense.

The Beavers are just not that good right now. They have some talented players and an experienced running back in Artavis Pierce, but the team is just not good. It’s as simple as that. They haven’t been able to beat a conference opponent, and I don’t think they’ll be able to to beat this Ohio State team. The Buckeyes will come out hungry and angry.

Ohio State 63, Oregon State 7

Mike Meihls

If the NCAA instituted a relegation rule, Oregon State would have been moved down years ago.

On paper, this game isn’t close. Even without Urban Meyer, Ohio State’s underclassmen team would win.

I expect a few things: to see the defense dominate, a little bit of Haskins getting to air the ball out to prove to to him he can do it, a steady diet of JK & Weber, and a lot of backups playing.

I want to say this is a 63-3 or 63-10 game, but Ohio State seems to give up a fluke TD in these games, so I’m going 63-17, in favor of the good OSU.

Ohio State 63, Oregon State 17

Chip Minnich

Every indication is that Ohio State will rout Oregon State easily.

Oregon State may be in the Pac-12, but it would be fair to say that new head coach Jonathan Smith has a major rebuilding project ahead of him, and starting on the road against one of the most talented teams in the nation is quite a chore.

Even without Urban Meyer on the sidelines, the talent differential between these two teams is stark, and Ohio State will be able to have their starters out by halftime, if they choose to do so.

Ohio State 56, Oregon State 3

Adam Borland

With almost no focus this past month on the team, players, and actual football, I’d imagine these Buckeyes are as motivated and mad as they come. Not like, “My computer just started doing updates” mad. More along the lines of, “That driver in front of me just came to a complete stop inside of the roundabout” mad.

Sure, Ohio State is without its head coach for the opener. However, this team is one of the most talented in the country, is playing at home, and has a chip on their collective shoulders.

Opposite the Buckeyes, the Beavers of Oregon State are not good at football.

Ohio State 56, Oregon State 14

Brandon Zimmerman

I’m really excited to see a Dwayne Haskins run offense.

I’ve mentioned many times that I feel like this offense has the potential to be the most explosive we have seen at Ohio State and that says something.

On defense, I just want to enjoy the trio of Chase Young/Nick Bosa/Jonathon Cooper wreaking havoc on the Oregon State offense.

I expect a lot of quick routes by the Beavers with some success early.

In the end, this angry team is going to score a lot of angry touchdowns and not give up many angry points.

Colorado vs Colorado State

Colorado vs Colorado State: Football Game The Rocky Mountain Showdown kicks off Friday between Front Range rivals Colorado State and the University of Colorado.
Click Here to Watch Now

The Colorado State Rams and Colorado Buffaloes will square off on Friday evening. The opening kickoff from Sports Authority Field in Denver is slated for 9:30 PM ET. This game will be televised by the CBS Sports Channel. At this present time (8/30), 5Dimes is showing Colorado as a 7.5-point favorite and there’s a posted total of 65.5.

The football rivalry between Colorado State and Colorado began way back in 1893. Friday will mark a 90th time these teams will have faced each other on the gridiron. Colorado has won 65 of the previous 89 meetings which includes going 3-0 SU&ATS during the past 3 seasons. As a matter of fact, Colorado has outscored Colorado State by a combined 61-10 in their last 2 head to head confrontations. Each of the last 4 games played between these teams have stayed under the total.

Colorado State does hold an advantage of having already played a game. Unfortunately for them, they were upset 43-34 by Hawaii last Saturday as a 17.0-point home favorite. On a positive note, the Rams racked up a massive 653 yards of total offense in that defeat. However, their defense allowed Hawaii to amass 617 yards of total offense. Additionally, Colorado State was plagued by a lack of discipline while being flagged 12 times for 120 yards in penalties. Ironically, during last year’s loss to Colorado they were assessed 10 penalties for an identical 120 yards in lost real estate.

Last week’s offensive explosion by Colorado State was sparked by quarterback K.J. Carter-Samuels who threw for 537 yards and 5 touchdowns. Carter-Samuels is a graduate transfer from Washington. The senior signal caller was able to discover a dynamic wide receiver tandem in junior Preston Williams and senior Olabisi Johnson. The 6’4 Williams totaled 9 receptions for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns while averaging an eye catching 20.9 yards per catch. Meanwhile, Johnson had 6 catches for 153 yards and 2 touchdowns while averaging an outstanding 26.2 yards per reception.

Colorado returns just 10 starters from a team that went 5-7 in 2017. However, one of those returnees is senior quarterback Steven Montez who started all 12 games last year. Montez passed for 2975 yards while tossing 18 touchdown passes against 9 interceptions. Montez can also beat you with his legs, and that’s evidenced by him running for 586 yards and 3 touchdowns a season ago. The Buffaloes inexperienced offensive line is a major concern heading into 2018. Especially when considering last year’s unit allowing an enormous 39 sacks. Nonetheless, the big guys up front will have ample opportunity to establish their running game against Colorado State’s defense who allowed Hawaii to rush for 199 yards last week.

SAN DIEGO — Juwan Washington is ready for his turn to be San Diego State’s featured running back.

If he’s as successful as D.J. Pumphrey and Rashaad Penny before him, SDSU will become the first school to have back-to-back-to-back 2,000-yard rushers.

Granted, those are some mighty big cleats to fill.

Washington replaces Penny, who led the nation with a school-record 2,248 yards as a senior before being drafted in the first round by the Seattle Seahawks. Penny had replaced Pumphrey, who led the nation with 2,133 yards as a senior in 2016 before being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles. Pumphrey left SDSU as the NCAA’s all-time leading rusher with 6,405 yards.

Washington, a junior, said he’s not feeling any pressure after learning behind those two stars.

“It’s one of those things that if it comes, it comes,” he said. “It’s not something I can just try to force on every game. The biggest thing is to win games and that’s what we want to do, so if that comes with it, that’d be good.”

As Penny was running toward stardom last year, the Aztecs still found room in their offense for Washington to carry 127 times for 759 yards (6-yard average) and seven touchdowns. In two seasons he has 1,200 yards on 182 carriers (6.6-yard average) and 13 touchdowns.

“That’s one thing we pride ourselves on,” Washington said, crediting Jeff Horton, the associate head coach/offensive coordinator/running backs coach. “Our offense is like a 1A- and 1B-type deal we have with our running backs, so we’re all getting in there and getting some experience and I got to get in there a little bit last year.”

Washington will debut as the starter when the Aztecs (10-3 in 2017) open on the road Friday night against Bryce Love and the No. 13 Stanford Cardinal. The Aztecs beat Stanford 20-17 in San Diego last season, with Love rushing for 184 yards and two touchdowns, and Penny going for 175 yards and one score.

Wisconsin vs Western Kentucky

The long offseason has finally come to an end and the Wisconsin Badgers football season is here. Up first in 2018 are the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, a team not-so-familiar to many in Badger nation.

Western Kentucky will kick off its 100th football season Friday, and coach Mike Sanford is looking for his team to make the game one to remember. And not one to forget. Wisconsin vs Western Kentucky are coming off a 6-7 season and roll into Camp Randall Stadium.

The Wisconsin Badgers know how to take care of business against lesser opponents, winning their last 45 meetings with non-Power Five foes, a streak that stretches back to 2003. The Badgers open their 2018 season as big betting favorites against another such opponent, Western Kentucky, Friday night.

The Wisconsin Badgers know how to take care of business against lesser opponents, winning their last 45 meetings with non-Power Five foes, a streak that stretches back to 2003. The Badgers open their 2018 season as big betting favorites against another such opponent, Western Kentucky, Friday night at Camp Randall.

After going 23-5 straight up and 17-10-1 against the spread the previous two seasons Western Kentucky is trying to bounce back from a 6-7 campaign last season. But the regression didn’t exactly come as a surprise, following the departure of head coach Jeff Brohm and more than half the starters on the team.

This year the Hilltoppers return 10 starters, one more than last year, for their second season under coach Mike Sanford Jr. Only three starters are back on offense, so there are holes to fill on that side of the ball. But seven are back, including six of last year’s top seven tacklers, on a defense that held opponents to 377 yards per game.

The last time Western Kentucky was dogged by this many points it actually gave Alabama a decent game two seasons ago and pushed a 28-point spread.

Why the Wisconsin Badgers can cover the spread

Wisconsin returns 13 starters this season from a team that finished 13-1 SU and 9-5 ATS last season and won the Orange Bowl. Nine starters are back on offense, led by junior quarterback Alex Hornibrook, running back Jonathan Taylor (1,977 yards rushing last year) and all five along what could be the best offensive line in the country.

And while only four starters are back on a defense that held foes to 262 yards and 14 points per game last year, that unit is not expected to suffer a regression. The Badgers are 34-7 SU and 26-14-1 in three seasons under head coach Paul Chryst.

When: Friday, August 31, 2018. 7:00 pm

Where: Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, North Carolina

Television: ESPNU

Line: Duke -14

Last Time: Duke 16, Army 21. The Blue Devils trip to West Point last season came with a disappointing result. After taking a 3-0 lead midway through the first quarter, Duke gave up 21 straight points and were unable to complete the comeback. The Duke defense held Army scoreless through the second half, but just could not muster any offense when it was needed. The Golden Knights triple option attack was held to 226 rushing yards, a season low, but 2 Duke turnovers and a blocked punt proved too costly. Army quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw attempted just one pass on the day, while Duke quarterback Daniel Jones went 19 for 29 for just 164 yards and 1 interception. The loss was Duke’s sixth in a row and marked a low point in the season that would see the Blue Devils rebound and reel off four straight victories including their Quick Lane Bowl win.

Game Preview

Duke will open the 2018 season with an untraditional Friday night game against a frequent opponent. The Army Golden Knights come to town coming off a 10 win season that saw them defeat the Blue Devils and go to a bowl game for the second straight season. The Knights return 11 starters from last year’s team and will be tasked with replacing quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw. While the quarterback in a triple option attack may seem like an easily replaceable position, Bradshaw was a dynamic player who helped bring the Army football program to national relevance over the last couple seasons.

The Blue Devils lost 21-16 at Army last Nov. 11, suffering their sixth loss in a row. Duke responded by winning its final three games, including a 36-14 Quick Lane Bowl win over Northern Illinois, to finish 7-6.

Even though Army turned in a stellar 10-3 season, the Blue Devils left Michie Stadium in West Point, N.Y., that cold November day disheartened with how poorly its offense performed. Army also returned a blocked punt for a touchdown, a crippling special-teams error by the Blue Devils that ultimately cost them the game.

With all that mind, here are 10 things to know about Duke’s first opponent for the new season, the Army Black Knights.

Michigan State vs Utah State

Michigan State vs Utah State Football After surging onto the scene in 2017, the Michigan State Spartans will enter the new year with much higher expectations. Michigan State football opens at home under the lights at Spartan Stadium against Utah State football: 7 p.m., BTN, 760 AM.

Date: Friday, August 21
Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
Location: East Lansing, MI
Venue: Spartan Stadium
TV: Big Ten Network

Rewinding back to 2016, the Spartans were ranked in the top 10 to start the year, but after an unexpected downfall finished with just three wins on the year. Entering 2017, it was assumed the program would be heading in the right direction, but no one thought they would be competing for a Big Ten East divisional crown this quickly.

Now, with the return of quarterback Brian Lewerke– along with their ever-so stout defense, the Spartans are now a favorite of many to come out of the East and compete for a berth in the College Football Playoff.

The Spartans, like many fellow Big Ten schools, will have a tune-up game in week one as they host the Utah State Aggies in East Lansing. It will be the first-ever meeting between these two and a good chance for each team to get some in-game experience before heading into the meat of their respective schedules.

Michigan State vs Utah State

If anyone outside of Big Ten and Michigan State fandom is asked about the Spartans, that person is likely to respond regarding the team’s defensive presence and reputation. Not many people look at the Spartans and think explosive offense, and reasonably so as the defense has been the strong suit for many years.

This season, quarterback Brian Lewerke could emerge as one of the best players in the conference. Not only is he a talented passer and smart player, but he is surrounded with up and coming talent at the wide receiver spots.

In order for the Spartans to contend for a Big Ten crown, the offense is going to need to get it rolling early- and this starts with Utah State. A lot of times in 2017, the offense was not able to pick up the defensive’s spectacular efforts, thus keeping it close and sometimes losing it. Lewerke and company are going to need to come out firing and looking to score early and often, rather than playing down to their opponent and going through the motions

Click Here to Watch Now

The Monmouth Hawks are an FCS team in the Big South Division. They are coached by Kevin Callahan, who has a 144-118 overall record in his tenure as the only coach in Hawks history. Their football program started in 1993 and their first points were scored on a defensive interception of a 2-point conversion.

The Hawks were 9-3 in 2017 and are predicted to finish second in the Big South. They return a large number of starters from that team, include their redshirt senior quarterback Kenji Bahar. Their main receiver, Reggie White is also a returning senior. Their sophomore running back Pete Guerriero appears to be their starter but they have a senior as his back up.

On offense, Eastern Michigan appears to giving the starting quarterback duties to Tyler Wiegers, who is a graduate transfer from Iowa. The record on him is inconclusive. It is at running back where Eastern Michigan seems to have a large advantage. The official starter is listed as Ian Eriksen but he is being backed up by two very capable backs in Shaq Vann and Willie Parker. I expect that we will get to see each of them play during the game.

Withthe loss of Sergio Bailey, Eastern loses a ton of experience at wide receiver but I expect Arthur Jackson or Blake Banham, a recent position convert from RB, to step up.

The Eastern Michigan offensive line is returning a ton of experience.

Eastern Michigan is facing a Monmouth defense that only gave up 140 yards per game last year. With three experienced backs and an experienced line, I expect to see Eastern Michigan improve their running game against that defense. The Eagles appear to be weak on passing offense, but they are facing a defense that gave up 250 yards/game last year. I hope this gives their inexperienced quarterback and receivers a chance to tune up.

On defense, I expect to see Eastern Michigan continue their aggressiveness. They return Maxx Crosby, Jeremiah Harris, Brody Hoying and Vince Calhoun, among others. It seemed like they were a sack machine. And in order to beat Monmouth, they are going to have to contain their quarterback. They are facing an offense led by red shirt senior quarterback Kenji Bahar, who had 197 yards/game last year. He has two senior wide receivers to pass to. In the back field, rushing duty will probably go to Pete Guerriero who averaged 91 yards/game last year. This will be a good experience game for Eastern Michigan.
