Ohio State lands in Top 5, six other B1G teams included in ESPN's preseason power rankings
The USA TODAY Coaches Poll has already been released. We still have a few weeks remaining until the Associated Press reveals its top 25 rankings for the 2019 season.
So it’s only appropriate that ESPN fills that void in the middle by unveiling its preseason power heading into another college football season. Much like the Coaches Poll, the B1G was represented well.
