Arguably the best game of the weekend is a conference clash between Ohio State and Nebraska. This matchup on Saturday should be a nice test for both programs.

Ohio State continued its dominance this fall with a 71-point victory over Miami (OH) last Saturday. Justin Fields strengthened his case for the Heisman Trophy with a six-touchdown performance.

Nebraska is also entering this showdown fresh off a win. However, Scott Frost’s team needed a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat Illinois on the road.

Adrian Martinez showed how dynamic he can be for the Cornhuskers, throwing for 328 yards and adding another 118 yards on the ground last weekend. He'll need a similar performance if he wants to keep pace with Fields and the Buckeyes.

Here are the details for the game:

Game Time: 7:30 PM ET

Channel: ABC

Spread: Ohio State -17

Over/Under: 66.5

Announcers: Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Maria Taylor

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Ohio State has an 89.8 percent chance of defeating Nebraska.

If the Cornhuskers have any chance of upsetting the Buckeyes, the defense needs to have its best outing of the season. The secondary has struggled mightily through four games.

Expect a high-scoring affair on Saturday, especially with Fields and Martinez playing so well.
