2016 Buckeyes Season Preview
Ohio State started last season in a world of uncertainty. Former Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller went down with a season ending injury before the season even started. A week 2 loss to Virginia Tech left the Buckeyes bracing for the worst. But the emergence of J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones saw Ohio State fly through the rest of the season, beat Michigan, win the Big Ten and win the first ever College Football Playoff. Enter the 2015 season and the expectations for the Ohio State Buckeyes are as high as they can be. Ohio State has possibly the 3 best quarterbacks in the Big Ten on their roster, with Braxton Miller starting the season at wide receiver. Junior running back Ezekiel Elliot also returns for the Buckeyes in 2015 and should continue his rise in the ranks of the nation’s top running backs. Top games on the Ohio State’s 2015 schedule include a rematch with Virginia Tech, and home games against Penn State and Michigan State. The 2015 Ohio State Buckeyes are the lone favorite to with the Big Ten, and should find themselves in the College Football Playoff once again.
