OSU has the better coach without a doubt. The Buckeyes have a better defense through the year and their 3rd string sophomore quarterback - Cardel Jones - is impressive. He'll be the real deal next year. The game will rest on weather he can have a game like he did against Alabama, and will their defense keep their heads up after the Oregon blast.
The most impressive thing about Oregon is they never let up regardless of the score.
I'm actually glad a PAC-12 team isn't there. I can sit back and enjoy the game without a dog in the fight. Good times.
