LSU vs Ohio State Pre-game Predictions
(Dallas (Formally New Orleans, LA & Columbus, OH))
LSU Defense Crushes Ohio State QB Todd Boeckmann
It's January 9th and LSU has "earned" and been crowned the National Champions.
Here's what a few of the "experts" said prior to the game:
â€¢ TIM MAY - The Columbus Dispatch
Ohio State 27-21: Speed wasn't the issue last year, the will to win was, and this OSU team will find a way.
â€¢ ROB OLLER - The Columbus Dispatch
Ohio State 24-23: Buckeyes ride the underdog train to a nail-biting finish as Tress tops Les in the dome.
â€¢ BILL RABINOWITZ - The Columbus Dispatch
Ohio State 30-27: LSU has more talent, but a couple of Tigers mistakes/coaching decisions tip the scales to the Buckeyes.
â€¢ DOM TIBERI - WBNS-TV (Channel 10)
Ohio State 24-17: Jim Tressel proves he is the best coach in the country.
â€¢ BRUCE HOOLEY - WBNS 1460 The Fan
Ohio State 27-23: Ohio State defense makes a play at the end with LSU driving. A Donald Washington interception closes it out.
â€¢ JASON LLOYD - Lorain Morning Journal
Ohio State 31-27. Todd Boeckman will be the difference.
â€¢ JERROD SMALLEY - WCMH-TV (Channel 4)
Ohio State 31-24: Three hundred and sixty-five days of being beaten down and ridiculed nationally is too much. OSU's motivation is bigger than LSU's motivation.
â€¢ JIM DAY - Fox Sports Ohio
Ohio State 28-26: This year, Alex Boone's tears are tears of joy.
â€¢ JEFF DUNCAN - The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune
Ohio State 30-20: Buckeyes are sick and tired of hearing about the SEC.
â€¢ CHRIS DUFRESNE - Los Angeles Times
Ohio State 28-24: Call me crazy, but â€¦
â€¢ TEDDY GREENSTEIN - Chicago Tribune
Ohio State, 27-24: LSU has slightly better personnel, but you will never find a more motivated group than these Buckeyes.
â€¢ HERB GOULD - Chicago Sun-Times
Ohio State 24-21. You take the devil you know, and in this game it's better to be the underdog.
