This season opens with a night game against Virginia Tech Saturday, and while yes, the game was scheduled many moons ago (about a decade), the match up was intended to be two heavy players duking it out for the win. Virginia Tech hasn’t quite kept up that same stamina, and OSU is still coming to terms with life without Braxton Miller. So what will Saturday hold? For one, a lot of cheering (and standing thanks to the rule clarification) fans and Ohio State favored by 11. The Hokies have a tried and true defense that doesn’t mess around and have been able to completely shut down opponents’ offense.
