Let's take a look at the schedule Ohio State football will face next season.

Ohio State's College Football Playoff hopes were dashed when the committee selected Alabama over the Buckeyes for the fourth and final spot.

Next up for the Buckeyes is a top-10 showdown against USC, but we can't help but wonder what next year holds for Ohio State.

With that being said, let's take a look at the Buckeyes' 2018 schedule and predict Ohio State's record. With no J.T. Barrett the Buckeyes will likely turn to Dwayne Haskins, who can in in relief of Barrett several times last season.

9/1: Ohio State 38, Oregon State 13

9/8: Ohio State 42, Rutgers 7

9/15: Ohio State 23, TCU 17

9/22: Ohio State 56, Tulane 10

9/29: Ohio State 37, Penn State 31

10/6: Ohio State 41, Indiana 24

10/13: Ohio State 30, Minnesota 13

10/20: Ohio State 28, Purdue 13

10/27: Bye

11/3: Ohio State 34, Nebraska 15

11/10: Ohio State 27, Michigan State 23

11/17: Ohio State 44, Maryland 37

11/24: Michigan 38, Ohio State 27

After getting beat down for six consecutive years, the Wolverines finally answer behind new quarterback Shea Patterson who will be eligible to play for the 2018 season.

Ohio State fans might not be happy with a loss to Michigan, but the Buckeyes will still rule the Big Ten East, after Michigan drops a pair of games. With an 11-1 record, Ohio State will face off against Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game once again.

This time, there will be nothing stopping the Buckeyes from making the playoff.
