Ohio State’s victory over Wisconsin last week knocked the Badgers out of the Top 25, and now Northwestern gets a shot at the Buckeyes, with a Wildcats victory likely pushing them up to crack the Top 10.

For a lot of people, the game’s on the watch list for Saturday’s upset special, with the

Vegas odds for college football showing the Buckeyes as a 7.5-point favorite.

Here’s what Fox Sports says about how that could happen:

Unfortunately for the Wildcats, the same report says this:

“Ohio State won’t go into ‘win-the-game’ mode this week like it did against Wisconsin. Miller has been too sharp and too good, and there won’t be any changing of the game plan as the Buckeyes come up with a strong road win and start to truly look like a top-five team.”

If you're looking for a place to watch the game on the East side, here are some suggestions:
