Ohio State vs. Northwestern: Complete preview and prediction

How we feelin’ Buckeye fans?

Has your heart rate slowed down from Saturday’s late-game surge to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in Happy Valley?

That place never seems to produce an easy path for OSU.

Thankfully, things get a little bit easier this week as Ohio State heads to Chicagoland to take on the Northwestern Wildcats.

Pat Fitzgerald’s club has struggled mightily this season and the Buckeyes coming to town won’t make life any better.

The Wildcats did play Penn State close earlier in the year,

but then just gave up 33 points to Iowa.

Ohio State has to be ready week to week,

but this one has the makings of a big-time blowout.

Let’s get ready for another Big Ten showdown
