This is an exciting year for Ohio State Buckeye football, with star players, exceptional new talents, and top-notch coaches. That excitement comes with high hopes and expectations for a Big Ten and national championship.
Winning it all means Ohio State must compete at the highest level. Here the competing nationally-ranked teams are compared by their individual units. They are grouped into Top 5 and Top 12 units, and are listed alphabetically rather than subjectively ranked any further within a group. For example, Ala(Bama) is not necessarily #1, they are just first in the alphabet among the Top 5.
How does Ohio State stack up? Who has the competitive advantage with the most top units in the nation?
Note: For a team that Urban considers offensive-line driven, Ohio State does not appear in the Top 12 OL nationally.
