College football guru Phil Steele has released his annual preseason magazine — a publication every lover of the sport orders months in advance. With his latest edition out, Steele has revealed his preseason top 25 heading into the 2020 campaign.

Steele has Ohio State listed as the top team in the country, edging out other perennial powers such as Clemson and Alabama. The Buckeyes return a lot of talent on both sides of the football, have a Heisman-caliber quarterback in Justin Fields and Ryan Day is entering his second season as head coach.

Following a 13-1 season in 2019 — which included a B1G title and College Football Playoff appearance — expectations are high in Columbus.

In addition to Ohio State, four other B1G programs were tabbed as top 25 programs heading into the 2020 season, giving the conference five in Steele’s rankings. Here’s a complete look at his top 25.
