Through 23 predictions, you folks are averaging a score prediction of 31.87 to 20.82.
31 - 23 Buckeyes!!! Nebraska has a pretty good kicking game.
MEMO TO FICKELL: DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!
What about you guys?

16 Predictions, 4 predict OSU.
Averaged: 26.81-24.94 Nebraska
Probably more right than wrong with that "average" score prediction.
Turnovers even, I think Nebraska has a 40% chance of winning. With every turnover +/-, those chances change 10%. If Nebraska goes -2 on turnovers, their winning probability shrinks to 20%. Go +2, and I think Nebraska has a better than average chance of winning (60%).
Nebraska will probably give up a few turnovers, so the game revolves around Nebraska getting more in return. I think it will end up even in the end, with tOSU winning primarily due to the advantages of playing at home. I would rate this as an even match-up on a neutral field, and either team a 3-7 point winner on it's home field.
That said, it looks like a 27-20 win for tOSU.

Good analogy! I also dig Josie!
24-13 Ohio State
My hope - Huskers win. Uh... 35-31
My dream - Tough hard fought game beautifully played and executed. Multiple lead changes. Two score lead flips then flips again. Late game TV audience is BIGGER than at the start. Game is won in the last 2-3 minutes by the DEFENSE! (Screw you WVA & Baylor)
The game is hailed as "Game Of The Week" all across the land. Loser is thought of as a winner by all.
In my dream, I can't see the scoreboard.

Going to be a hard fought contest going down to the wire. We score on a drive at the 5 minute point in the 4th quarter where we march 70-80 yards and score with less than a minute to go. OSU 34 Nebraska 27.
Our breakout game that puts us back on the map...TOSU 45 NEB 21.
Think it might be a high scoring game, but that's a conservative score.
I dont know if Nebraska has enough national respect to give you all the "back on the map" title.
Pretty sure if we lose by more than 7 it will be because "we arent that good, and havent played anyone"....
"In the deed, the glory"
Pretty sure with a signature like that, most were not able to pay attention to your post. Welcome, and post more often here.

I tell you what, brother: bring the gurlz in your avatar and sig as cheerleaders and I guarantee you'll win this game...

Is Blackshirts a synonym for a black teddy?
We aren't going to let Martinez and Burk have another night like last year.
24-23 good guys

A big win on National TV over a quality opponent will give us a nice bump upward, setting us up for a high rank going into next season. If we win this one decisively, and provided it propels us to close out the second half of the season strongly, I'm thinking this will get us a Top 3 rank going into next year. If Meyer can turn this thing around in what we all recognize is a rebuilding year - regardless of the strength of competition which admittedly is less than stellar - it helps us in the national picture.
With a pathetically weak schedule next season, we have very few opportunities to impress until the 2013-2014 post season and Meyer knows we need to take advantage of this one.
TOSU is always on the map due to the program's history, so that probably wasn't the best phrase to use.
28-10, good guys.
"Any board that would ban 3yds is worthless"
35-27 Nebraska. Brax gets hurt and Kenny replaces him and does a great job but it isn't enough as Luke's Defense continues to struggle making tackles in the open field against the speed of Nebraska and they get some big plays from Martinez and Abdullah.
Ugh! More of a nightmare than a prediction.
