Staff picks! - Iowa
By the-Ozone Staff

This might be a bit of an ugly game, but I do expect Ohio State to hit some big plays in the passing game. Expect a couple of long-distance passing touchdowns for Braxton Miller, and perhaps some nice hits outside of the box in the running game. I don't think Iowa will be able to move the ball effectively on the run or in the air. Ohio State 27, Iowa 10 - Tony Gerdeman (6-0)

Iowa has been praised all week for its tough rushing attack and stout rushing defense. Neither is as good as the Buckeye's. Ohio State 35, Iowa 14 - Rob Ogden (6-0)

It will be a battle of who can shut down the run game. The Buckeyes are one of the best teams in the country at doing so, and they want to show their pass defense isn't as bad as many perceive it to be. If Iowa can get going rushing, they could keep it close by running the clock and playing good defense, but this is OSU's game to lose. Ohio State 38, Iowa 17 - Patrick Murphy (6-0)

Iowa's fine rushing defense will slow down OSU's fast offense. OSU's fine rushing defense will make Iowa's mundane offense almost nonexistent. Ohio State 28, Iowa 13 - John Porentas (6-0)
