Meet the Buckeyes: Ohio State football depth chart against Michigan

The Columbus Dispatch

Ohio State football enters the last game of the 2021 regular season hoping to punch its ticket to the Big Ten Championship Game against the team from Ann Arbor, Mich.

That would No. 5, Michigan, who the Buckeyes haven’t faced since 2019. That changes as the No. 2 Buckeyes travel to No. 5 Michigan on Saturday for a noon kickoff. 

And judging by the projected depth chart for the Buckeyes, they could be back to full strength. Last week cornerback Sevyn Banks missed the game against Michigan State with an undisclosed injury, but the senior is expected to start against the Wolverines this weekend.

Master Teague, who has missed several game this year, is also projected to be available for the offense. Teague is listed as the third running back this week.

What could the entire starting lineup look like against Michigan?
