Rutgers-Ohio State Under 62 – In four meetings against national power Ohio State since joining the Big 10, the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have scored a grand total of 24 points versus the Buckeyes.

The last two games have resulted in shut outs: Ohio State blanked Rutgers, 56-0, last season after winning by a 58-0 margin in 2016.
Sure, Ohio State’s defense looked human in the Buckeyes’ season-opening dismantling of Oregon State as the Beavers scored 31 points and gained 392 yards. The outcome (Ohio State rolled, 77-31), however, was never really in question, and one would expect the Buckeyes’ stop unit to be aiming for a cleaner statistical performance in Week Two.
Rutgers true freshman quarterback Artur Sitkowski, who threw three interceptions in his starting debut last week (a 35-7 victory over Texas State), should find the sledding much more difficult against one of college football’s most unforgiving defenses.
Fourteen points seems like a long shot for Rutgers under optimal conditions and that benchmark may be even more difficult to achieve with a significant chance of rain in Columbus, Ohio throughout the game.
Play the Rutgers-Ohio State game to remain under the total of 62.
