7. Ohio State
Ohio State Ohio State has tons of holes to fill, including QB Justin Fields. But just like Alabama and other powerhouses, when stars leave Ohio State, they are replaced with other stars. Ryan Day has continued Urban Meyer’s precedent of National Championship or bust and OSU got close this year.
With a question mark at QB, I’m not sure OSU will be able to return to the big stage next year but they will certainly be the top contender in the Big Ten.
