Ohio State vs Virginia Tech: 4 Reasons OSU Will Lose, 4 Reasons They Will Win

6. Ohio State’s offense

The WRs are hurting, but the rest of the team is scary. The starting QB won’t be named until the first play, but the Buckeyes will still sport the three best QBs in the stadium that night no matter who takes the snaps.

The offensive line is experienced and strong. They also know what they allowed last year to VaTech (7 sacks), and they are hungry to control the line of scrimmage.

And then there’s Ezekiel Elliott. Virginia Tech’s best RB last year was J.C. Coleman, who rushed for 533 yards. Elliott rushed for 696 yards – in his final three games. Zeke is a Heisman candidate entering the season, and he’s got a new weapon commonly known as the stiff-arm. He was unable to use that last year, but offseason surgery on his wrist will allow him to keep tacklers away.

Born and raised a Buckeye fan, Jeff Seemann has been covering sports in Ohio for 25 years. He attended The Ohio State University in 1987, where he went to more football games than classes. As a result, he is now (finally) finishing his degree at the University of Cincinnati. He claims to have been in attendance at Earle Bruce's final game (a win over That Team Up North), the Browns' double-OT win over the NY Jets, and the game known as "The Shot". He is only fond of recalling the memories of two of those games. Feel free to annoy him on Twitter at @JeffFromOhio
