The Ohio State Buckeyes were 11-0 and ranked No. 2 in the country until a crushing 45-23 home loss to Michigan in the final week of the regular season. The loss put Ohio State outside of the top four in the College Football Playoff and out of the Big Ten Conference Championship game. Quarterback C.J. Stroud was a preseason Heisman favorite and threw for 3,340 yards with 37 touchdowns, but in many ways his year has been a little underwhelming. Wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. looks like a chip off the old block with 1,157 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns to lead the Buckeyes.
