The debate between which team is better between Ohio State and Alabama is going to be an ongoing discussion leading up to the college football regular season. I considered a couple of months ago that the Buckeyes have one of the best shots to knock off Nick Saban this season for the national championship, and that opinion remains strong.
However, one thing that is hard to argue is which conference is stronger between the SEC and Big Ten. Even a traditional Big Ten fan would have to admit that the conference down south is superior to the group of teams in the midwest.
But what if you were to throw away a lot of the quality teams in the SEC and give the Buckeyes the 2013 Alabama schedule this season? Flip the home games that would take place in Tuscaloosa and put them in Ohio, while Urban Meyer and his guys make the occasional road trips that the Tide was scheduled to make.
How would the Buckeyes stack up?
The answer may actually surprise you.
