College Football News predicts every game of Ohio State’s 2021 season

·3 min read

OK folks. The sands in the hourglass continue to fall ever so gently towards the start of the 2021 Ohio State football season. The team has a lot of holes to fill from graduation and dreams of NFL grandeur, but the talent in the cupboard is stocked like your local Whole Foods store.

One site we like to follow for all things college football-related is the aptly named College Football News. The site has a wealth of analysis, predictions, and fun stories to whet your appetite during the season and outside of it.

Just recently, CFN published its predictions for every single Big Ten football game and that means we are keenly interested in what writer Pete Fiutak has to say about the prospects of OSU’s season.

Here’s a look at how Fiutak sees every game playing out for your Ohio State Buckeyes in 2021.
