The line for this game is Ohio State by 29.5 points.

Ohio State silenced its remaining doubters last weekend and Maryland appears likely to be the Buckeyes’ next victim Saturday when the teams meet on the Terrapins’ home field. The Buckeyes demolished Nebraska 62-3 last Saturday and sits at No. 5 both in the top 25 poll and, more importantly, in the College Football Playoff standings.

Senior quarterback J.T. Barrett has 21 touchdowns and four interceptions, including four TDs without a pick against Nebraska. He has gone three straight games without an interception and likely will continue to target Samuel, who has 29 catches over the last four outings. Barrett needs two total touchdowns to break the Big Ten record set by ex-Purdue star Drew Brees (95).

The Terrapins’ 4-0 start is barely a memory at this point following a 1-4 stretch capped by a hideous 59-3 loss to Michigan last weekend. Maryland trailed 35-0 at halftime. Quarterback Perry Hills is day-to-day with a shoulder injury, giving Caleb Rowe another shot under center if Hills can’t go.

Ohio State has six “pick-six” touchdowns this season. By comparison, the defense has allowed only 10 TDs all year.

Meyer is 7-1 all-time against his former assistants. Maryland coach DJ Durkin is a former Meyer protégé who worked under him at Bowling Green and Florida.

Samuel is the only player in the country with at least 500 yards rushing and 500 yards receiving.
