Ohio State is expected to blowout Illinois Saturday afternoon, but for many Buckeyes and even fans, it will be an emotional day on Senior Day. Along with many players playing their last game in the Shoe including both seniors and redshirt sophomore and juniors who will leave early and take their talents to the NFL, it will also be the last home game for many students as well.
Urban Meyer announced a program record nine captains for the 2017 season. Of the nine, one is quarterback J.T. Barrett, who is the first player on Ohio State football history to be named a captain three separate times.
The Buckeyes are expected to have the best defensive line group in college football this season, but defensive coordinator Greg Schiano believes that it’s so good that it’s even better than the one’s he coached during his time in the NFL.
