The Ohio State Buckeyes are coming off of an undefeated season that surprised everyone. They had future Hall of Fame coach Urban Meyer in his first year at the helm, and they were on probation from postseason play. Meyer developed a raw team and turned them into arguably the best team in the nation last year.

Quarterback Braxton Miller threw for over 2,000 yards and ran for almost thirteen hundred more. The Ohio State Buckeyes offense is explosive and can score in an instant. They can play the power run game, run with finesse, and can throw the deep bomb against almost anyone.

Defensively The Buckeyes were solid in every area besides pass defense. They gave up a ton of yardage through the air, finishing 11th in The Big Ten. They will need to improve in order to win the conference in 2013.

2013 Outlook: The Ohio State Buckeyes should run the table with their regular season schedule. The toughest non conference games are San Diego State at home and Cal on the road. Two games in conference to circle are October 5th at Northwestern and November 30th at rival Michigan. This team has the talent to play for a BCS Championship. The only question is if they can duplicate what they did last season with the expectation of winning it all.
