Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says his players better take the spring game seriously on Saturday because their starting spots could depend on it.
Last season the Buckeyes were 12-0 but couldn't play for the Big Ten championship because of NCAA violations. Now eligible, and with almost everyone back on offense, they'll go into the fall favored to unseat three-time defending Big Ten champion Wisconsin in the Leaders Division.
Meyer says the spring game counts for more at Ohio State than it does at some other schools.
Gary Andersen is in his first spring at Wisconsin and Darrell Hazell debuts at Purdue. The Badgers, Boilermakers and Penn State have quarterback competitions this spring.
Indiana has put an emphasis on defense, and Illinois has 40 new players on its roster.
