The Ohio State football team will play their second straight game on the Big Ten Network this weekend and it looks like BTN could broadcast one of the best conference games yet in the 2021 season.
The No.11 Buckeyes travel to New Jersey to face the Scarlet Knights 3-1 at 3:30 p.m. in Week 1.
The Buckeyes had their ups and downs in the first month of the season. A Week 2 loss to Oregon put the defense under a microscope and even in the Buckeyes’ antics against Akron last week there was some drama.
Meanwhile, Rutgers nearly scored one of the biggest upsets of the season when he lost 20-13 to Michigan in Ann Arbor. The Scarlet Knights own a victory in Syracuse sandwiched between victories over Temple and Delaware.
