#2: Indiana Hoosiers

Just when 2021 could not get any crazier, who would have thought that, of all Big Ten teams, Indiana would be the Buckeyes most intimidating challenger?

The Hoosiers gave OSU a run for their money last season as, even though they never really felt ahead, they kept it close numerically. And ultimately, if your number is higher than theirs, you win. Indiana will be at home and the crowd will be roaring (at least by their standards). This is the upset alert of Ohio State’s 2021 conference schedule for sure.

#1: Oregon Ducks

If you have ever glanced at the Buckeyes schedule for next season, this was the game that most likely stood out to you the most. Oregon is an unfamiliar foe in the eyes of OSU and is not some no-name.

The Ducks have been one of the most prominent Pac-12 powers in recent memory and will travel to Columbus to face Ohio State right after the latter endures a physical ordeal at Minnesota. To call this one interesting would be one heck of an understatement.
