The college football season sits just under two months away and fans eagerly awaiting the new season.
For fans of teams in the Big 10, the 2019 season will bring several new faces to the forefront – especially for the Ohio State Buckeyes.
After losing Dwayne Haskins to the NFL, the Buckeyes reload at the quarterback position with the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2017 class: Justin Fields.
Fields transferred from Georgia to Ohio State and gained immediate eligibility for the upcoming campaign. The Buckeyes will also be without head coach Urban Meyer as Ryan Day officially takes over.
Despite the turnover at the position and Urban Meyer being gone, Ohio State is still the favorite to win the conference.
OddsShark released odds for the Big Ten this season and the Buckeyes open as a slight favorite over Michigan.

Penn State, Nebraska and Wisconsin round out the top five, but are seen as distant contenders against the Wolverines and Buckeyes.
Ohio State and Penn State will both field new quarterbacks when the season kicks off after losing Dwayne Haskins and Trace McSorley respectively.
The Nittany Lions reload with Sean Clifford under center. The former top quarterback recruit chased Tommy Stevens from the program and looks to be the presumptive starter.
