Despite its low game count, the Ohio State football team was close to perfect last season. Will 2021 be any different?

Ohio State Football has consistently possessed some of the best talents and coaching over the years, and 2020 proved to be no exception. With that said, another star-studded season is surely on the horizon for OSU.

Who has the greatest chances of crushing the Buckeyes’ dreams of obtaining another national championship trophy? Let’s take a look.
