2013 Ohio State Buckeyes Picks
The win total for the Buckeyes is set at 11.5, which basically means that if the over is going to cash in the Buckeyes will have to go undefeated for the second year in a row. For as talented as Ohio State is, going undefeated is never an easy task. They needed last minute heroics to beat Cal a year ago and this season they play the Golden Bears on the road.

Every team that they play will be looking to knock off the powerful Buckeyes for that signature win. The home game against the Wisconsin Badgers will not be easy and anytime Ohio State plays Michigan, anything can happen. The defense will need some time to adjust after losing six starters on the front seven and that uncertainly will make it very difficult for this team to go undefeated.
The Buckeyes will have another successful season but will not go undefeated.
