The Ohio State Buckeyes rebounded nicely from a bad loss to Illinois by getting revenge on Indiana in their last outing, and are now looking to launch another winning streak with a victory over an opponent they already beat handily this season. OSU will take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday, after beating them badly 71-40 earlier this month. The Cornhuskers are having a very tough time getting into a groove, dropping four-straight games at one point, threeo f which were to ranked opponents.

Well, they were able to best a ranked opponent in their last outing, a 70-69 victory over the then-No. 13 Hoosiers, so there is that going for them. If they were able to score an upset in their last outing, they have to feel good about a potential upset in their next.

But the first time these two teams met this season, Ohio State dominated in every aspect. They outrebounded the Cornhuskers 44-21 and Jared Sullinger scored 19 points with 12 rebounds. Nebraksa is the home team this time around, but they've been losing games at home to ranked opponents.. The Cornhuskers do have Jorge Brian Diaz and Dylan Talley back in action though, so this one could look much different from the first outing.
