Those are two teams I don't think could play with OSU simply because they're one diminsional. Their offenses are good enough that they woudl actually put some points on the board. But they wouldn't put up high point totals. OSU's defense is good enough to slow them down and keep their point total reasonable. But both defenses wouldn't be able to keep OSU's offense from scoring.
The teams that could beat OSU are the ones who are more balanced. I think they'd struggle to beat USC or LSU. I think they'd struggle against Oregon as well. I know that they're not that balanced, and their defense is pretty bad, but they have the best offense in the country, IMO. Even Ohio State's defense would have a hard time slowing them down.
But all that said, I think Michigan could beat them at home this year, assuming Mike Hart plays.
