Mirek's Early Longhorn / Buckeye Prediction....

This is going to be a great game. NCAA football needs more of these early big-team interconference match-ups. They're great for the players, the teams, and of course the fans. Unless it's a blow-out (which I don't see in this one); neither team really has much to loose. Either one can still win their respecitive conference during the regular season. Don't get me wrong, the winnner will be in the driver seat for a national title.

I see this as a smash-mouth game. Both teams have great defenses. Ohio State brings the power and Texas brings the speed. Both are great tackling teams. We'll see if the offenses are able to keep up with that intensity this early in the season. Whichever offense gets it in gear and can sustain it for 60 minutes will probably win. I don't see this as a high-scoring game.

Look for a close one throughout. I see Texas pulling away very late in the 4th quarter with its running game and the play of Vincent Young. Troy Smith might be a little rusty since he as to sit out week one. I like the HORNS in the SHOE: 17-13. Hook - 'EM Baby!
