The Match-up

THE Ohio State University takes on Rutgers University in a Big Ten battle. Rutgers joined the Big Ten in 2014, and has gone 4-7 through their first 11 games in the conference. On the other hand, the Buckeyes haven't lost a conference game since November 26, 2011 when they lost to Michigan at the Big House. The Buckeyes are currently ranked number 1 in the country, and if they can avoid a bad loss, will be poised to get into the College Football Playoff for two years in a row. Ohio State is favored by 21 in this contest in Piscataway, and it could be much worse by the time the final second ticks off the clock. Rutgers doesn't have much of a shot in this one, and I think they will still be seeking win number 4 on the season come Sunday morning.

The Prediction

Ohio State - 45
Rutgers - 14

Cute Guy Watch 

I had almost given up picking a Cute Guy for this week after looking through the entire football rosters for both OSU and Rutgers. I was ready to search for an image of Brutus Buckeye to use for this week when I decided to go through OSU's roster one more time. I don't know how I missed it before, but Alex Stump, wide receiver for OSU, is a great feature for our Cute Guy Watch. Normally I'm really not a fan of facial hair, but this guy pulls it off well. Ladies, quit your drooling and go friend him on Facebook. From my limited creeping... He seems to be single. ;-)

Mascot Match-up

Although Brutus Buckeye isn't at all intimidating, I have always loved his awkward shaped smiling face. His hat is too tiny for his giant buckeye head, but I think it's better that way. The Rutgers Knight also shares a big grin on his face, but I think it's more frightening than cute. He reminds me of Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. Although the Knight's helmet would save him for a period of time, I think Brutus Buckeye's oversized head is going to lead the team to victory this weekend.

Tailgate and Cheer in Style

We're nearing the end of October and the temperatures are dropping like it's cold. Bundle up this weekend with a matching scarf and hat or earwarmer. Here is what we recommend to cheer on the Ohio State Buckeyes:
