According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Buckeyes currently have 10/1 odds to win the 2014-15 College Football FBS Championship. Florida State remains favored to defend its title at 11/2, while Alabama is 6/1 and Oregon is 8/1. Auburn, which fell to FSU in last year's BCS championship, is currently 9/1 to win this year.

Returning to Ohio State's offense this year is 2013 All-Conference quarterback Braxton Miller, who, if he can stay healthy, has a chance to win the Heisman Trophy. Receivers Evan Spencer and Devin Smith also return, as well as tight end Jeff Heuerman.

The problem offensively for the Buckeyes is that they had to replace four offensive linemen during the offseason as only OT Taylor Decker returns. While coach Urban Meyer is a skilled recruiter, that's a lot of turnover in one offseason for one of the most important units in football.

At least OSU will be stacked once again on the other side of the ball. The entire front seven from the 2013 team returns, outside of the WILL linebacker spot. 2013 All-Conference defensive linemen Noah Spence and Michael Bennett return, as well as nose guard Joel Hal and defensive end Joey Bosa. Joshua Perry and Curtis Grant return at linebacker, as do defensive backs Doran Grant and Tyvis Powell.

While the Buckeyes do have the challenge of replacing four starters on the offensive line, they should benefit from a schedule that allows them to miss the Big Ten West's best teams - Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa. That said, if they don't run the table, then strength of schedule could hurt them when it comes to this year's Final Four.
