Ohio State will get some extra time to prepare for Oklahoma this week as they faced Indiana last Thursday. The Buckeyes will also get a major offensive weapon back in running back Mike Weber as coach Urban Meyer told the media Monday afternoon he will be ready for the Oklahoma game.
J.K Dobbins was the starter against Indiana and he ended up with 181 yards rushing on 29 carries. However, it’s hard to see him getting the start over Weber who finished last year with over 1,000 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. Weber missed the game against Indiana because of a hamstring injury, but it wasn’t serious.
Now the sophomore will likely split his carries with the freshman Dobbins, but that should scare Oklahoma as both are great runners and having both of them fresh throughout the game could stress the Sooner defense to the point of breaking.
