The Ohio State Buckeyes ran the table last season with a perfect 12-0 record. However, due to NCAA violations from previous years, OSU was banned from the postseason. Now that the one-year ban has been served and head coach Urban Meyer is undefeated after his first season in Columbus, Ohio, the Buckeyes will make the 2014 BCS National Championship Game.
Three main factors will allow Ohio State to make the college football title game in the final year of the BCS. The Buckeyes are led by potential Heisman Trophy quarterback Braxton Miller, Urban Meyer has a career record of 116-23 as a head coach, and by matching last year’s regular-season record, the Buckeyes would be a shoo-in for the national championship.
Braxton Miller: A Heisman Trophy Candidate
In his sophomore campaign, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller threw for more than 2,000 yards and ran for more than 1,200. He was responsible for 28 touchdowns combined through the air and the ground in addition to his pair of two-point conversions.
