Nebraska will be facing an uphill battle if they hope to knock off the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday night. Ohio State is a heavy favorite (17.5 points), but that isn’t stopping Mark May from picking the Cornhuskers.
It’s hard to say what his reason for taking the Cornhuskers over the Buckeyes is, exactly. Ohio State is one of the more formidable teams this season and will make a case for the final College Football Playoff spot, while Nebraska was beaten by Wisconsin last week in their firs real test of the season.
So why did Mark May pick Nebraska? Well…because he hates Ohio State, of course.

It is no secret that Mark May doesn’t like Ohio State. He constantly picks against them regardless of who they’re playing. He calls them slow, he criticizes the NCAA for not punishing them enough; he just plain can’t stand those Buckeyes. So what are the chances that Ohio State falls to the Cornhuskers? They aren’t high, but crazier things have happened.
Ohio State has not won a game by more than a touchdown in 3 weeks, and lost their first game of the season to Penn State two weeks ago.
