Since it's a Peacock game and it's streamed, I'm unable to do the live thread today. Will pregame thoughts and thoughts after each quarter as well.

Obviously big news that there is no Mitchell Evans today (concussion). He's a player they have to have back for OSU. Good news that we'll probably see Eli Raridon, though. Really would love to see him get a couple of targets. I'd expect a lot of Cooper Flanagan today.

Equally big news on the other side with QB Bert Emmanuel Jr out. He's their biggest weapon on offense. Backup Jase Bauer is also a good runner, but a worse passer. Not nearly as dynamic.

Everyone should be hoping for PT from the young guys today. Hopefully ND takes care of business and pulls away before half time.
