Ohio State CB-WR Chris Gamble versus N.C. State WR Jerricho Cotchery
The 6'1", 200-pound Cotchery is quarterback Philip Rivers's favorite target and N.C. State's big-play threat. He has caught at least one pass in 29 consecutive games and has 14 catches for 235 yards and two touchdowns this season. As the nation's best two-way player, the 6'2", 200-pound Gamble knows a thing or two about running good routes and locking down All-America receivers. He neutralized Washington star Reggie Williams in the Buckeyes' 28-9 victory on Aug. 30, and if he shuts down Cotchery, it's going to be a long afternoon for the Wolfpack.
