Poll: Ohioans think Ohio State could beat the Browns

Friday October 7th, 2016

New poll results in the state of Ohio reveal that 62% of residents polled think the Ohio State Buckeyes could beat the Cleveland Browns head to head.

The Buckeyes are ranked No. 2 in the college football polls but are, of course, a college football team. The Browns are 0–4, as opposed to 4–0, but are a professional team with significantly more experience, depth of talent, and better-developed athletes. These types of hypothetical debates can often skew toward the more successful team, although Ohio State has turned out plenty of pro players under Urban Meyer.

Former Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor now stars at receiver for the Browns, for what it’s worth.

Regardless, the people have spoken. Who would win? We’ll never know.

Ohio State faces Indiana on Saturday, and the Browns draw the Patriots and Tom Brady on Sunday.
