Washington vs Ohio State By-the-Numbers

Husky fans, it's time to throw some numbers against the wall and see if they stick. Like a fine pasta, the outcome of a football game can often be predicted in this fashion. OK, so I'm no Emeril Lagasse, but I'm willing to look at the crunched numbers if you are. If you like to play the percentages, you might want to hedge your bet a little bit bit.
