The college football season is one of the most anticipated sports seasons of the year and this fall is sure to be no different.

Ohio State is coming off a loss in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, and Buckeyes fans will love where the team was ranked in PFF's preseason power rankings.

Ohio State came in at No. 3 behind only the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers. They are the top ranked team in the Big Ten conference, but head into the season with a lot of questions to answer. It'll be interesting to see if the Buckeyes have the depth to keep up with the other top-tier teams.

Losing starting quarterback Justin Fields to the NFL will be a tough hole to fill for Ohio State, but the team has some intriguing options including redshirt freshman C.J. Stroud. Plus, the Buckeyes receive a boost on offense given their leading wide receiver Chris Olave will be back. He racked up 729 yards on 50 receptions and scored 7 touchdowns in 2020.

Ohio's State's defense will also look a lot different next season. However, cornerback Sevyn Banks will look to step up after breaking up 6 passes and racking up 23 tackles last year. It's notable to point out that he Buckeyes' are bringing in the No. 2 ranked 2021 recruiting class in the country as well, according to 247sports.

This Buckeyes team is a bit of a mystery, but everyone knows how they seem to compete for a title year in and year out. Ohio State currently has the fourth-best odds to win the National Championship at +600, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
