This Urban Meyer Stat Should Have Ohio State Fans Optimistic

Here's why Buckeye fans should be optimistic this season.

Ohio State enters the 2017 college football season as one of the national title favorites. The Buckeyes have the second-best title odds at most sportsbooks, behind Alabama and ahead of Florida State, USC, Oklahoma and others.

Based on Urban Meyer's history as a head coach, you have to like OSU's chances this season.

Why?

Meyer has lost three bowl games as a head coach - the Capital One Bowl the 2007 season, the Orange Bowl the 2013 season and the Fiesta Bowl this past season.

In 2008, Meyer led Florida to a national title.

In 2014, Meyer led Ohio State to a national title.

In 2017...will Meyer lead Ohio State to a national title?

History says yes.

Ohio State opens its season on Thursday, Aug. 31 at Indiana at 8 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
