UNLV vS. Ohio State live stream. Five Predictions for UNLV vs Ohio State, UNLV Rebels vs Ohio State Buckeyes Live Stream: TV Channel, Team News
Although UNLV’s zone-read running scheme differs from Army’s triple option, they are also very committed to the ground game. The Rebels average only 18.5 passing attempts per game compared to 48 rushing attempts for 350.5 yards and 3.5 touchdowns per game. Rebel junior running back Lexington Thomas averages 170.5 rushing yards per game and 9.0 yards per carry. Redshirt freshman quarterback Armani Rogers is also a threat to run with his average of 6.7 yards per carry.
UNLV can make use of the fact that Ohio State has still dropped two places in the AP Top 25 poll. This comes as a mild surprise, as the performance of Ohio State was impressive against Army. However, this must mean something. As a team, Ohio State might be weakening. And that is exactly what UNLV needs to know to infuse more moral power in their team spirit.
I expect the Buckeye passing offense to steadily improve since it’s going up against a defense that likes to play man coverage, something the Buckeyes face every day in practice. I also see J.K. Dobbins having another big day for Ohio State, flirting with 100 yards rushing by halftime.
