I'm dreading this game.
Everything is stacked against us. SEC opponent. Southern location. Myriad distractions. My fear is that we'll play Virginia Tech to Arkansas's Stanford. Hang around for a quarter or two and then go home on the wrong side of 42-10.
So is tonight the night that Buckeye fans everywhere decide that OSU is a basketball school? Bucks are 12 1/2 point favorites against Iowa.
Buckeyes played a brilliant first half, taking a 28-10 lead, but nothing has gone right since. The phantom safety may have been the last straw as the lead is cut to 31-23. I think I've seen this movie before.
Meanwhile the basketball team eked out a 73-68 win over Iowa in a game where they trailed for the bulk of the action.
Another bizarre play as Herron fumbles on what should have been a back-breaking, clock-burning, 4th down conversion.
Bucks lead 31-26 with less than 6 minutes, but right now we're waiting for the inevitable Arkansas go-ahead score.
Buckeyes get a remarkable three and out with 4 1/2 minutes to go. Field position continues to be their greatest enemy as Arkansas punts them down inside the 5 yardline.
With 2 minutes left, OSU has done a good job of running the ball and running down the clock.
Still, the game has been way more exciting than it needed to be.
And there you go. A special teams disaster. Would have been better if they'd gone for it.
HOLY COW! The Bucks get an interception with a minute left!
Bucks win 31-26. Unbelievable game. I've got nothing left to say.
Hope someone off the defense gets the MVP. They made the difference 100%.
