Ohio State vs. Toledo Tomorrow in Cleveland!

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No. 11/11 Ohio State has put the heart-breaking USC loss behind them and has now shifted its focus to Saturday's matchup with in-state MAC foe Toledo at Cleveland Browns Stadium (ESPN Plus/WSYX6/Noon ET).

Ohio State coaches and players understand the kind of challenge that lies ahead. As a team, Toledo is ranked No. 7 nationally in both total offense (558.5 ypg) and passing offense (371.0 ypg) and 15th in scoring at 42.5 ppg. Toledo's quarterback, senior Aaron Opelt, leads the nation in total offense at 437.0 yards per game. He threw for 423 yards and three touchdowns in a loss at Purdue in the season opener and 319 yards and four scores in a 54-38 win over Colorado last Friday in Toledo.

The Rockets are led by former Ohio State assistant, Tim Beckman, who, like Jim Tressel, is an alum of Berea High School in Berea, Ohio. Beckman coached Ohio State's cornerbacks from 2005-06
