Watch: Phil Steele Picks Buckeyes To Cover Spread In Ohio State-Oklahoma Game

ESPN's Phil Steele is taking the Buckeyes.

Vegas is favoring the No. 2 Buckeyes over the No. 5 Sooners by 7.5 points according to ESPN's Phil Steele, but despite the sizable margin, Steele still expects Ohio State to cover the point-spread by "10 to 14."

The key to the game? Coaching—specifically the experience of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer.

"Urban Meyer—veteran—won a couple of national titles [and] Lincoln Riley will be in his first big game as a head coach,"
Steele said on SportsCenter earlier today, "I'm gonna go with the experience of Urban Meyer to get it done at home."

Ohio State and Oklahoma will kick off Saturday at 7:30 p.m. E.T. and you can catch the game on ABC.
