Ohio State 2021 Season Preview

The last time we saw Ohio State, it lost 52-24 in the national championship against Alabama. The Buckeyes finished 7-0 in the Big Ten in 2020, and they’ll be looking to finally win it all this year. First up, they’ll kick their season off on September 2 against Minnesota.

Getting to the championship and winning it won’t be easy for a Buckeyes team that lost several key players on both sides of the ball — but no loss will be felt more than that of quarterback Justin Fields.

The dynamic dual-threat quarterback is now with the Chicago Bears, but he led an offense that put up 41.0 points a game last season. Both seasons with Fields under center, Ohio State averaged 41+ points a game, and while OSU head coach Ryan Day named C.J. Stroud the team’s starting quarterback on Aug. 21, it remains to be seen how well Stroud can lead the offense.

He’ll have quite the duo in Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson to throw to, and tight end Jeremy Rucker will also be back, as will running back Master Teague.

For his part, Day understands that his team must keep winning — and winning and winning — if it wants to meet expectations set by over a decade of dominance in the Big Ten.

“The expectation has been set, we know that. It was the same expectation when I was fortunate enough to be (named) the head coach a couple years ago and the expectation hasn’t changed and won’t in 20 years here at Ohio State,” Day said, per Sports Illustrated.

“We’re expected to be the best. With that comes great responsibility. We’ll wake up every day and just grind. I keep using the word ‘obsessed.’ Our players have to become obsessed with maximizing themselves in the weight room, watching film and getting themselves prepared to play against Minnesota,” he added.

On defense, the Buckeyes will be led by captain Teradja Mitchell. Ohio State saw its top three linebackers from last year, Baron Browning, Tuff Borland and Pete Werner, all graduate, so how well the team can shore up the middle of the field will be huge this season.

Defensive tackle Haskell Garrett will anchor the line, with Zach Harrison and Tyreke Smith also returning. Freshman Jack Sawyer will be another intriguing name to watch on OSU’s d-line.
