Ohio State Football: Buckeyes come in at no. 2 in Big Ten Network power rankings

With the season just a few days away, the initial power rankings for the Big Ten Conference will begin to be unveiled. And on Wednesday, the Big Ten Network unveiled theirs, and the Ohio State Buckeyes are not far from the top.

In the initial rankings for the 2014 season, the Buckeyes came in at no. 2 in the rankings, right behind the Michigan State Spartans.

Here’s a look at what they had to say about the Buckeyes in the initial power rankings by the Big Ten Conference.

From 1-85, there isn’t a more talented team. But the defense enters 2014 with questions in the back end. And now, the offense will be directed by a redshirt freshman quarterback. This still can be a very good season. But special?

And for those that are interested, here is a look at why the Spartans were chosen for the top spot, above the Buckeyes.

Even before the season-ending injury to Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, I felt the Spartans were the Big Ten’s best team. The offense has morphed from a question to a strength in one year. The defense? It’s as devastatingly good as ever. 

What do you think of the rankings to get the season started? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
