Ohio leads the all-time series against the Huskies 36-22, but has not won in DeKalb since 2017. The Huskies, despite their record, are a tough team to beat on the road and have even beat MAC power, Akron, this season. Ohio barely won the last meeting on Jan. 5, but Jason Preston did not play. With Preston back, the Bobcats will be at full strength, and it may be needed to walk out with the win.
