Ohio State arrived in Buffalo on Tuesday night, and the No. 6 Buckeyes will spend Wednesday practicing, talking to the media, watching more film and getting ready for their matchup with No. 11 Dayton at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday on CBS.

The Buckeyes and Flyers haven't played since the 2008 NIT and haven't met in the regular season since 1988, so Dayton will be trying to prove a lot.

Ohio State has been waiting for the one-and-done aspect of the NCAA Tournament to serve as a spark for a team that has struggled with slow starts during the season. But Dayton may be looking to jump all over the Buckeyes.

I talked about that motivation and how this tournament may play out for the Buckeyes with Cinesport's Noah Coslove.

As of Tuesday night, with nearly 3,200 votes in, Ohio State was picked to win by just 51.8 percent of voters in our poll, while Dayton got 48.2 percent.
