Ohio State 22, North Carolina State 19. Losing Maurice Clarett has hurt and distracted the Buckeyes.
SATURDAY UPDATE: Ohio State 44, North Carolina State 19 in triple overtime. I was kind of close because late in the fourth quarter, Ohio State was leading 24-17 which is close to my prediction (at the end of the fourth quarter, it was tied at 24-24). The Buckeyes once again dodged a bullet and kept the longest winning streak in Division 1-A football intact at 17 games. It was ugly but a W is a W. Next week, Ohio State plays Bowling Green which today kicked the crap out of Jerry Falwell's Liberty University 62-3.
