The Buckeyes had little trouble with in-state foe Miami (Ohio) last Saturday. Ohio State dominated the RedHawks in a 56-10 rout. Quarterback Braxton Miller was a dual threat as he ran for 161 yards on the ground and threw for 207 in the air.
UCF put together a 56-point effort of their own in their victory over Akron in Week 1. The Knights weren't as dominant as they looked on the scoreboard, as they only outgained Akron 386-325. UCF was fortunate to recover three Akron fumbles and intercept a pass.
This will be the first time that Ohio State and UCF have met in football.
Game time, TV channel: Noon ET, ESPN2
Point spread: Ohio State favored by 18 1/2.
