Ohio State at Notre Dame Preview & Picks

  • Ohio State won 21-10 when the teams last met in September 2022

Ohio State Form

Ohio State take a perfect 3-0 record into their biggest game of the 2023 season so far.

The Buckeyes were sluggish offensively through the first two weeks of the season, but were still able to get the job done comfortably.

They opened with a 23-3 victory on the road at Indiana that cost them the #3 spot in the college football rankings.

Ohio State then dropped from #5 to #6 in the wake of an underwhelming 35-7 victory over Youngstown State in their home opener.

The Buckeye’s offense start to fire last week though, and that resulted in a 63-10 blowout of Western Kentucky.

Notre Dame Form

Notre Dame boast a perfect 4-0 record heading into their first meeting with a ranked team this season.

The Fighting Irish opened the season in Dublin, Ireland where they made straightforward work of Navy in a 42-3 win.

They then backed that up with another blowout win in their home opener, downing Tennessee State 56-3.

Notre Dame faced more resistance when they went back out on the road, but they again produced a strong offensive showing to run out 45-24 winners at NC State.

The Fighting Irishmen then took their record to 4-0 with a 41-17 victory over Central Michigan last time out.

Verdict

Ohio State’s offense is beginning to heat up, but Notre Dame’s unit is already rolling.

The Fighting Irish have a unit that can at the very least run the Buckeyes close, so we are taking ND and the points in this big matchup.
