Ohio State football predictions vs. Toledo – The Columbus Dispatch

  • September 15, 2022

Through two weeks of the 2022 college football season, the Ohio State Buckeyes’ defense has allowed just one touchdown in eight quarters of play.
That type of defensive success is something the Buckeyes (2-0) will look to continue when they host Toledo (2-0) during Week 3 at Ohio Stadium in Columbus on Saturday.
The Buckeyes are 34-point favorites against the Rockets, who last played Ohio State in 2011 and nearly pulled off an upset of Luke Fickell’s Buckeyes before losing 27-22.

Toledo is unbeaten through two games, having defeating FCS Long Island State and UMass. But can they become the first Ohio school since Oberlin in 1921 to beat Buckeyes?
Let’s take a look at who The Dispatch staff and Kyle Rowland of the Toledo Blade picked to win the Ohio State-Toledo game.

Toledo’s front seven on defense is strong enough and dual-threat quarterback Dequan Finn is talented enough to give the Buckeyes some issues. The Rockets aren’t the pushover many Mid-American Conference teams have been in visits to the Horseshoe. But the talent disparity is still too big for this game to stay close for long. Look for the Buckeyes’ defense to create its first turnovers of the season as its front four asserts itself against a shaky Rockets offensive line.

Don’t expect this to be as lopsided as Ohio State’s last game against an in-state MAC opponent, a 59-7 rout of Akron last September, a contest so uncompetitive the Buckeyes were afforded a chance to rest quarterback C.J. Stroud’s injured throwing shoulder. Toledo has one of the most talented rosters in its conference, and experience playing blue-bloods, so it shouldn’t roll over when it visits the Horseshoe in prime time. But Ohio State’s passing game is starting to click again and should be even more prolific this weekend with Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Julian Fleming on track to return.

Toledo is no pushover in the Mid-American Conference. Unfortunately for the Rockets, they’re entering Big Ten territory and the Buckeyes are no Ball State. After an early feeling-out period of, say, 30 seconds, Ohio State will devour UT’s defense like it’s an egg MACMuffin. The Buckeyes’ passing game will be impossible to stop, especially if Jaxon Smith-Njigba returns from injury. The only question is whether Ryan Day attempts to establish the run game. Toledo probably hopes so. Defensively, Jim Knowles’ revamped system continues to impress.

Toledo could turn some heads on national TV. One of the better teams in the Mid-American Conference, the Rockets will come into Ohio Stadium with something to prove to the rest of the state of Ohio. Unfortunately, it comes against a team that’s beginning to rev up momentum for a Big Ten run. Jim Knowles’ defense will prove to be too much for DeQuan Finn and Co. C.J. Stroud and the rest of the offense could take a minute to adjust to Dallas Gant and the rest of the Rockets defense, but will settle and find its groove ahead of a prime-time matchup against Wisconsin in Week 4.

Toledo is making its first trip to Ohio Stadium since 2011, when the Rockets were 16 yards away from history. This Ohio State team is a different animal. UT’s defense can cause some issues for the Buckeyes in the first half, but I would be surprised if they can consistently limit the damage for 60 minutes. Offensively, dual-threat quarterback Dequan Finn needs to play the best game of his life. At the end of the day, there just isn’t enough talent to beat an Ohio State team that’s overflowing with four- and five-stars.
