The end of August is almost here, which means college football will return to our living rooms and all will be right in the world.

For the Ohio State Buckeyes, though, 2019 sure will be different. With both Urban Meyer and Dwayne Haskins no longer with the program, new blood will look to unite this team and help them capture a Big Ten title. Well, that new blood is head coach Ryan Day and signal-caller Justin Fields.

And leading up to the season, the Buckeyes have +125 odds to win the Big Ten championship, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While Justin Fields hasn't officially been named the new starting quarterback by Day, it's been widely assumed he'll be QB1 when the Buckeyes take on Florida Atlantic in the season-opener in Week 1.

Of course, Fields won't be the only playmaker to watch out for, as stud running back J.K. Dobbins is all set to have his junior campaign get underway. Last year, the 5-foot-10, 217-pounder rushed for 1,053 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Per FanDuel Sportsbook, Michigan has +250 odds to win the conference title, while Wisconsin has the third-best odds at +1000.

Who will end up capturing the glory? We'll learn more about these teams within the first few weeks of the season, you can count on that.
