It'll be hard finding a more intriguing matchup this weekend than the one brewing in Dallas. With Ohio State and TCU preparing for war on Saturday, both programs will have an opportunity to grab a signature victory for the 2018 season.

The Buckeyes have been dominant in their last two games, outscoring their opponents by a total of 95 points. However, the Horned Frogs won't be a pushover.

With dual-threat quarterbacks in Dwayne Haskins and Shawn Robinson ready to shine in the spotlight, this matchup between top 15 programs will be must-see television.

Yet, ESPN believes the outcome on Saturday is extremely predictable. According to their Football Power Index, the Buckeyes have a very high chance of staying undefeated. 

A score prediction for Ohio State vs. TCU.

That's right, ESPN's FPI gives Ohio State a 86.6 percent chance of winning.

Even though TCU has enough firepower on offense, they'll have to keep up with an offense in Columbus that averages 64.5 points per contest.

Ohio State and TCU are set to kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET. The game will be available on ABC.
