COLUMBUS — The wait is over: Ohio State has a game this week. The Buckeyes will head to Minnesota for a season-opening Big Ten night game Thursday.

The Buckeyes will begin their quest for a fifth straight conference title and third straight College Football Playoff appearance with an 8 p.m. ET kickoff from Huntington Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

And Lettermen Live is back at Roosters for one of its biggest shows of the year to preview every angle of it.

The all-star crew is led by Lettermen Row senior writer Austin Ward and features former Buckeyes linebacker Bobby Carpenter, former Ohio State quarterback Justin Zwick, Nicole Cox from Roosters and Lettermen Row director of recruiting Jeremy Birmingham. They made sure to dive into the upcoming Buckeyes road trip and how it can set the tone for another run at a national title.

How will C.J. Stroud look in his first game as Ohio State starter? What should be expected from the Buckeyes offense against a solid Minnesota run defense? How will captain Thayer Munford, who has been cleared for the game after battling a minor injury, and others fare in their new roles?

And, of course, there is plenty of talk about Ryan Day’s beard.

You won’t want to miss all that and more Buckeyes news that is featured in a loaded Lettermen Live hosted by Roosters that is yet another must-see episode. Don’t forget to grab the $2 appetizers every Tuesday at all Roosters locations. This week’s appetizer is cheesy bacon wedges.
