Surprise, surprise: Buckeyes top Big Ten preseason power rankings

  • Loaded Buckeyes expect return to playoff

It was a shocking fall for Michigan State, which had gone 36-5 over the previous three seasons and was coming off a trip to the College Football Playoff in 2015.

Allen said it's really not that big of a deal.

An interesting wrinkle heading into this game is that former IN head coach Kevin Wilson has taken on the Ohio State offensive coordinator job.

Kane showed he was just as risky from outside the box firing in a fierce effort on the hour mark that Hogg did well to save. It was a frustrating night up to that point but a late flurry of goals boosted Southgate on an otherwise forgettable night.

"I thought about what it's going to be like seeing him in pregame", Lagow said at media day.

The latter is a big part in the development of any young pitcher and something that has seemed to be missing much of the year. "When your best players are veterans, they've played a lot and yet they're working harder, that is a great image as a coach". Covering these two will be a big test for a depleted Ohio State secondary, but Sheffield is a highly touted player with lots of potential, and should be able to get the job done. The IU defense held Ohio State to 93 passing yards in their last meeting which kept things close into the 3rd quarter.

Barrett, who is 26-4 as a starter and the only three-time captain in Ohio State history, said he's been working with new offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson on tempo, footwork, accuracy and other issues that led to breakdowns last season, particularly in the humiliating 31-0 loss to eventual national champion Clemson in the playoff semifinals.

Until then, deliveries will be intermittent and dependent upon supplies from refineries and storage terminals. A crucial artery in the nation's fuel supply network, it provides almost 40 percent of the south's gasoline.

Junior receiver Parris Campbell started nine games past year and will slide into the hybrid H-back slot that made a star out of Curtis Samuel last season. "Every year is different, every game is different, and the more I think about it, I have an obligation and responsibility to do my best for these guys and this team". But it isn't going to be your typical Saturday night Big Ten showdown. If the Buckeyes' new defensive backs can play at a similar level as their old ones, then this season should be a success.

Mike Weber and J.K. Dobbins vs. Indiana's run defense. Dobbins has impressed as a true freshman and is already No. 2 on the Buckeyes depth chart. He played in four games as a rookie, a season marred by foot and hamstring injuries. Both have raved about Barrett and his improved accuracy during this offseason. "J.T.is one of the best practice players I've ever seen". Fant, a fifth -year senior, is the Football Bowl Subdivision's active leader with 48 passes defenses defensed and 44 pass breakups in 38 career games. Together, they're hoping to anchor a Top 25 defense. IN has won 14 of its last 15 home openers but is 1-9 all-time against ranked teams in Week 1. Wilson is now the offensive coordinator and tight end's coach for the Buckeyes. Ohio State has won 22 straight in the series, including the 2010 game that was later vacated. The Buckeyes feature four ends that would likely be number one at almost every other school in the country.
