Ohio State will wear new LeBron cleats for Oklahoma game

Ohio State, meanwhile, made it to the playoff despite not winning their conference. What seemed like a team in chaos slowly turned into growth.

During the Nick Saban era, Alabama is 6-1 straight-up and 3-4 against the spread during games in September when it was favored by 10 or fewer points. Past year the Buckeyes beat Oklahoma, Michigan beat Colorado, Wisconsin beat LSU, Michigan State beat Notre Dame and Nebraska beat OR, giving the Big Ten a ton of credibility before conference games started. Andrews has Ohio State's attention. "That's like the M.O. of our team".

"Every week for us is the Super Bowl, " Franklin said.

"We understand these are the types of games you've got to win in non conference in order to get to where you want to be", TCU coach Gary Patterson said.

Defensive end Tyquan Lewis made two of the sacks last week and is poised for a monster season after making eight sacks a year ago.

UTEP coach Sean Kugler knew what was coming.

But after the consecutive wins, the practice habits learned and the leadership developed from that loss, this team is ready to once again climb back in the ring.

Mayfield remains miffed that Buckeyes fans basically took over Oklahoma's home field last season. The Sooners offensive line is very solid with at least a couple National Football League prospects among the group, but this is as good a front as they will see all year.

"Hey, if you scared, you don't wanna go hard?"

"We've watched it together a million times", added Okoronkwo. "It's not really a matchup between us".

On defense, the Sooners finished 68th nationally previous year in points allowed per game, but the bulk of their struggles came in the early part of the season. Under this current format, it is not so much how you lost or even who you lost to. Wisconsin's Troy Fumagalli (seven catches, 84 yards) had a nice game against Ohio State in 2016. As a defense, you go back and look at that.

"Just fun to see this team get off to a great start", Riley said. "There's a lot we have to fix, but this is why we prepare".

-DBs Tre Brown and Tre Norwood, both freshmen, are expected to see bigger roles on defense and special teams as the Sooners try to develop depth in the secondary with CB Jordan Parker suffering a season-ending knee injury in the opener. The Buckeyes traveled to IN and handed the Hoosiers their first loss of the season 49-21.

Price and Elflein regularly practiced snapping after practices in past years and worked through the nuanced differences in footwork that come from the limited space in which the center gets to operate.

"We didn't change anything we were doing (against Texas)", Durkin said. Duke quarterback Daniel Jones can go toe-to-toe with Clayton Thorson in what should be a fun one in Durham. That list includes the 15 in the above chart, plus Saint Mary's - and future "Hawaii Five-O" - star Herman Wedemeyer and Ohio State's Braxton Miller, neither of whom finished in the top 10 in their final season. "I'll translate to the guys that may have a tendency to overdo it a little bit".
