The #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes head to Berkeley to take on the Cal Golden Bears in this week's featured college football game of the week. This is the second game in a home-and-home series, in which Ohio State won the opening game, 35-28. Last year's game was the first meeting between the two teams in 40 years and the Bears gave Ohio State a tougher battle than they were expecting. The game was tied at 28 with a little more than three minutes remaining in the game when quarterback Braxton Miller hit Devin Smith for a 72-yard touchdown, serving as the catalyst for the Buckeyes to continue on to an undefeated season. This year, OSU heads to Cal's newly-renovated stadium to face a team headed by new coach Sonny Dykes. Dykes takes over the Cal program after leading Louisiana Tech to a season in which they were the nation's top ranked offense, scoring 51.5 points per game. The Bears will be featuring Dykes' up-tempo spread offense known as the Air Raid and key to the Bears' success will be finding a quarterback. Freshman Jared Goff looks to be the early frontrunner for the position. However, asking anyone, let alone a freshman, to start against Ohio State is asking a lot. Quarterback Braxton Miller returns to lead the Buckeyes and anything less than another undefeated season and a chance at the Big Ten Championship and National Championship will be a disappointment.
