Ohio State kicks off their 2020 college football season at home against Nebraska on Saturday October 24 The Buckeyes enter the game as the top-ranked Big Ten team, though they haven’t played the first seven weeks of the season OSU won their 2019 game 48-7 against the Huskers behind three quarterback touchdowns Justin Fields The junior finished third a year ago in the Heisman Trophy vote and will look to kick off their 2020 campaign with a strong start against the Nebraska

OSU enters 2020 college football season with unfinished business After an unbeaten regular season, the Buckeyes were stunned in the dying minutes of their college football playoff semifinal loss to Clemson OSU started at No 2 in the 2020 pre-season AP poll before falling ahead of the Big Ten’s decision to bring football back this fall.With eight games in eight weeks, the state of Ohio will be looking to climb back to the top of the ranking while participating in the program’s fourth application to the CFP

The Buckeyes went 13-1 last season, winning a third straight Big Ten title The Buckeyes came undefeated in the college football playoffs, winning their first 13 games by 36 on average2 points, all double-digit wins Clemson ended Ohio State’s season in the 2019 Fiesta Bowl in a 29-23 thriller

The Buckeyes were in the top 5 teams in total defense and total offense last season before losing three players in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Defensive end Chase Young was taken second overall by the Washington football team while defensive backs Jeff Okudah and Damon Arnette were selected third and 19th overall by the Detroit Lions and Las Vegas Raiders Overall, the state of Ohio had 10 players (seven defensemen) drafted in April, likely opening the door for new faces to be key contributors in 2020

Quarterback Justin Fields played in his first season at Columbus following his transfer from Georgia He was a second-year Heisman Trophy finalist, totaling over 3,200 yards and 41 touchdowns for just three interceptions Fields also showed his versatility as a double threat option, recording another 484 yards and 10 TDs with his legs. If Fields replicates his success from a year ago, he’ll likely be in contention for major hardware

Ground play can be different with JK Dobbins gone Replacing a three-year-old starter is hard enough It gets even harder after the junior rushes for 2,000+ yards while scoring 23 touchdowns in total a season ago The leading role of the full back could go to Master Teague III (789 yards, four touchdowns in 2019) or Oklahoma transfer Trey Sermon (13 touchdowns in 2018)

Although the racing game may see some personnel changes this year, Fields will have one of his main targets in Chris Olave His 49 receptions placed second in the Buckeyes, although Olave led the team. in yards (849) and touchdowns (12) With KJ Hill and Binjimen Victor leaving for the NFL, there will be additional targets up for grabs Don’t be too surprised if Olave crosses the 1,000 yard mark with a significantly higher utilization rate higher this season

The Buckeyes won’t have JK Dobbins anymore, but OSU will continue to have strong ground play (Master Teague) and dynamic QB at Justin Fields (51 total TDs in 2019) Defense will lose star Chase Young and others, but CB Shaun Wade is one of those who return
