The Ohio State football team is preparing for its third step in the 2022 college football season, and this time it’s against an in-state opponent, the Toledo Rockets. And hey! it’s a night game, so that’s always fun.
This one isn’t expected to be much of a contest based on the odds released by our friends at Tipico, but the Buckeyes will still need to find a way to get motivated, put their foot on the gas early, and put this one away. After all, we’ve already seen teams this season pull the upset when everyone least expected it.

Players to watch

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Wide Receiver – Everyone knows how good Smith-Njigba is in the passing game. He got knocked out of the Notre Dame game early and has been unavailable since nursing an apparent hamstring injury. He’s expected to be back in this one, and it’ll be important to get him going, but watching how healthy he is as the team prepares to get going in the Big Ten part of the schedule next week.
95 receptions for 1,606 yards and 9 TDs
Dequan Finn, Quarterback – Finn is a true dual-threat quarterback that has put up good numbers so far in 2022, albeit against less than stellar competition. He can throw the ball, but the Ohio State defense will have to be aware of his ability to get out and run as well.
33-of-54 for 388 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT (Passing)
19 rushes for 138 yards (7.3 avg.) and 3 TDs
