Bucks have early test

The Ohio State Buckeyes open this year’s football season against a very talented MAC school. The Northern Illinois Huskies are the favorites to win the MAC west title. The Buckeyes usually play a mid-level division one school in one of their first two games. This opponent may be more of a challenge than Ohio State originally planned.

The Huskies running back, Garrett Wolfe, is coming off a very successful season. He rushed for over 1500 yards and 16 touchdowns last year. The Bucks rush defense will be tested early as Northern Illinois has a history of success on the ground. The MAC conference is known for competing in high scoring and wide open football games. Coach Tressel may be forced to unleash his talented early and let their speed put this game away.
