The Buckeyes will deploy a spread, 3-receiver formation for most of the time so expect receivers Dane Sanzenbacher (sr.) and junior DeVier Posey to get many of the catches. Posey led the team in receptions and yardage a year ago. At running back, the new starter is expected to be senior Brandon Saine but Dan Herron will see a lot of the ball too.
Nine of the eleven starters on defense are upperclassmen so this unit should be a year smarter and more effective in this years 2010 college football predictions matchups. Senior DE Cameron Heyward highlights a DL that will be breaking-in three new starters. However, the linebacker unit is one of the best in the country with three senior starters. Projected starters in the secondary are two seniors and two sophomores, and the group is headlined by CB Devon Torrence (Sr.).
