Fresh off their 2014 campaign that led to a national championship, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes look to capitalize on returning talent in 2015. Four years in, Urban Meyer has coached the Buckeyes to a record of 38-3, but this may be his most difficult year ever, as a revitalized Michigan team with Jim Harbaugh at the helm will face them at the end of the season.
Add in a three-way quarterback controversy that has made the rest of the college football world jealous and the Bucks appear to be poised to once again make a run for the national championships. You aren’t going to want to miss a single second of the action this year.
