I have to admit that Troy Smith has impressed me at QB these last few games. My raggin' on him earlier must have worked.
He is 1st in the conference with a QB rating off 165.12 (4th in the nation), and his passing efficiency (165.12) also leads the division. But is 11th in passing yardage (1265). Northwestern's QB Basanez (whom we face this next week) leads the conference with 2507.
OSU and NW are about even in rushing yards per game (180+). But NW leads the division in PYPG with 319, while OSU is 8th (219).
But I look at NW's schedule and go "ho-hum". They play us at home, and I want to see how they do against our "D".
