Ohio State Buckeyes Season Prediction, What Will Happen
There’s no excuse.
Win the Big Ten, get to the College Football Playoff, have an honest shot to win a second national title in the CFP era.
Yeah, missing out on the playoff last year hurt, and dropping the date to the Wolverines seemed to sting even more, but harsh reality time …
Even if Ohio State did beat Michigan, it would’ve throttled Iowa and gone off to the College Football Playoff where it would’ve been in for a bad day against whatever it faced in the semifinals.
If you thought Rose Bowl Utah was a problem, try 2021 Georgia or Alabama.
This time around is different. Ohio State shouldn’t just beat Michigan and do all the other things needed to get to the CFP, it has the talent and upside to handle whatever monster comes out of the SEC.
No, it can’t, won’t, and shouldn’t be a foregone conclusion that the SEC Champion – or refreshed Clemson – takes another national title.
Set The Ohio State Buckeyes Regular Season Win Total At … 11
Notre Dame is Notre Dame, but that’s a home opener against a Buckeye team that should be ready to come out roaring.
There are dates with Wisconsin and Iowa from the West, but both of those games are in Columbus.
Michigan State is on the road, and there’s a run of three road games in four weeks including Penn State and – be very, very careful of this – Maryland in the game before the regular season finale against Michigan.
Ohio State should be good enough to be a double-digit favorite against everyone, but it’ll probably drop one game on the wrong day when the other side has everything working.
There might be one loss, but there won’t be a second in the regular season.
