2015 Recap:  A surprising 3 point loss at home to Michigan State, kept the Buckeyes from getting an opportunity to defend their Big Ten and National Championships.  They closed out the season with a convincing Fiesta Bowl win over Notre Dame.

The 2016 schedule has several road tests.  The game at Oklahoma is what could determine a trip to the playoffs or not.  A revenge road trip to Michigan State will be a challenge as well.
