Forward Kaleb Wesson is the star of the Buckeyes averaging 14 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. Forward Kyle Young is questionable for this game and if he can’t play, Ohio State will need to replace his 22 minutes of production a night.

Nebraska is 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games played on Thursday. The over is 8-3 in the Cornhuskers last 11 games overall.

Ohio State hasn’t had a lot of success on the road, but the teams they have played on the road were much better than this Cornhuskers team. Nebraska’s defense won’t be able to slow down Ohio State and that will be the difference in this game. Back Ohio State to win this game and cover the spread.
