Now to what you might actually care about…OSU (+4.5) vs WashingtonLine has moved to UW +6All signs point to give OSU six points and take the Huskies.Washington has the edge on turnover margin, Tyreek isn’t around to bail us out (honestly, no pun intended) and a Husky defensive front that is second in the nation in sacks per game against OSU’s (insert your own adjective) offensive line.Season stats can be misleading though. One can look at Washington’s sacks and OSU’s sacks allowed and conclude we’re in for a rough evening.The problem with that?Those stats reflect Daxx’s concrete feet rather than Rudolph’s elusiveness.
