It's hard to imagine Ohio State's offense has come so far so fast.

Before the season, everyone from coach Urban Meyer on down had huge questions about an offensive line that was missing four starters and a running attack that was without 1,500-yard rusher Carlos Hyde.

And that was even before the three-year starting quarterback, Braxton Miller, was lost for the year with a shoulder injury.

Heading into Saturday's game at Minnesota (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten, No. 25 CFP), the Buckeyes (8-1, 5-0, No. 8 CFP) have a stadium full of options when they have the ball.

Freshman QB J.T. Barrett leads a lethal offense that is averaging 46 points and 512 yards a game.
