#5 Oklahoma at #2 Ohio State
A top 5 matchup featuring two teams with good shots at making the College Football Playoff (or perhaps a preview of the National Championship, according to Baker Mayfield.) This is a rematch of last year’s early-season meeting in which Barrett and Ohio State dominates Oklahoma in Norman 45-24.
Both teams quarterbacks have led their respective teams to the CFP before (Barrett twice). Mayfield is coming off an impressive performance to start the season (earning the top spot in this year’s initial Heisman HYPE Ranking) while JT Barrett and Ohio State had a tougher time dealing with Indiana in their season opener than most expected they would. This game will be a major asset to the winning team’s resume and a good performance out of Barrett or Mayfield would provide an early boost in their Heisman stock.
