The Pick

Over 59

Both of these teams bring in dynamic offenses that operate very differently but have one thing in common: hanging up a lot of points on the scoreboard every week. Ohio brings a quarterback who is tenth in the nation in passing yards, while Buffalo’s backfield has been their strength this year. This should be a close one, but I think each team hits the 30-point mark on Tuesday night.
