Who've you got? Baker Mayfield or JK Dobbins in Columbus?

These two met past year in Oklahoma, with the Buckeyes getting a 45-24 win.

Oklahoma got plenty of production from their pass catchers in their easy win over the Miners on Saturday. He led the team with nine sacks a year ago.

James has always been a big fan of the Ohio State program and has been connected to the program for years. While Oklahoma has a variety of receiving options, there isn't a true established receiving threat yet.

"People might put the headline as J.T. Barrett and I", Mayfield said.

Altogether, Oklahoma rushed for 180 yards on 38 carries and six tail backs had at least four carries or more. He accounted for 365 total yards in the game, bringing his career total to 9,211 yards, a school record.

Sunday's match will mark the first time Notre Dame has hosted Ohio State in volleyball since the 1996 season and the first meeting between the two sides since the teams met in the first round of the NCAA Championship in 2012.

Ohio State unleashed running back JK Dobbins in its season-opening 49-21 win at in, and all the freshman from La Grange did was rush for 181 yards.

Ohio State, meanwhile, made it to the playoff despite not winning their conference. Despite going undefeated with enormous numbers in Big 12 play, the performance against the Buckeyes, and the 1-2 hole Oklahoma started in, made catching up to Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson impossible. Ohio State's current cornerbacks have not proved as affective so far, as they allowed IN to record 420 passing yards. The receptions that were big gainers were of the catch-and-run variety. Campbell also returned two kickoffs for a 25-yard average.

At 6-foot-5 and 254 pounds, the two-time All-Big 12 selection is coming off career highs of seven catches and 134 yards in last Saturday's 56-7 win over Texas-El Paso. The Sooners' playoff anxiety increased as the season went on.

One of the most anticipated matchups of the college football season is set to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday night.

But if OU wants to truly erase the hurt from previous year, if they want to validate themselves as a team capable of being special, of winning a national championship, they'll have to arrive in Columbus ready to brawl: just like they were at the end of last season.

And they haven't lost since then. The neutral observer will also be hoping for a closer game, since last year's was over by halftime. And that's something we talked about during camp.

"We've never been here for a team to sing a fight song on our field. Quite frankly, it's just embarrassing".

Sam Khan Jr. says: "Beating the Buckeyes in their backyard with a first-time head coach is a tough ask". Baker Mayfield ranks first in completion percentage, yards per attempt and touchdown percentage on throws outside the hashes, but I think Ohio State is going to learn from the first game and win this game against Oklahoma. "They had at me three different positions, so I couldn't just hide in my shell at one". We have to go out and try to play a lot better than previous year and play more up to our capabilities.
