NCAAF Picks and College Football Expert Picks – Ohio State Preview For the 2010 Season

The Ohio Buckeyes once again will field a powerhouse team that will go for their sixth straight Big 10 title. The Buckeyes have breezed through the Big 10 the past five years although they have not been able to win the big games until last years’ Rose Bowls win in which they won 26-17 as underdogs. Ohio State proved they could win a big game which was their first since beating Notre Dame in the 2005 Fiesta Bowl and now the expectations are set for the Buckeyes to win a National Championship.

Ohio States’ quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a huge game in which ufabet ทีเด็ดบอลสเต็ป displayed all his skills in the 2009 Rose Bowl and that performance puts him in the running as a Heisman trophy candidate for the 2010 season. Pryor leads an offense that returns nine starters but he must improve a passing attack that finished last in the Big 10 and 103rd in the nation. Pryor passed for 2,094 yards, 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions with a 56 passing percentage. Ohio state has always presented a dominate rushing attack and they are strong at this position again with a running combination that features two experienced backs in Dan Herron and Brandon Saine. This dangerous combination ran for a total of 1,339 yards with Herron gaining 600 and Saine running for 739. If this offense can display a balanced run and pass attack like they showed in the Rose Bowl, they have enough big play skilled players to present a threat every time they take the field.

The Ohio State defense is the most dominate component on this team and is the unit that can bring them a possible National Championship as they return seven starters to a defense that ranked #1 in the Big 10 and 5th in the nation. The Buckeyes are known for producing NFL caliber linebackers and once again they have another big play linebacker Ross Homan who lead the team with 108 tackles and five interceptions on a defense that held opponents to 90.8 yards average per game against the rush and 171.5 yards per game against the pass.
