Ohio State beats MI 62-39

An Oklahoma team without much in the way of a defense, or an Ohio State team with the worst loss among playoff contenders?

Maybe most satisfying of all, Ohio State made it 14 victories in the past 15 meetings against the team it loves to beat the most. The Buckeyes drubbed previously-No.

Stefan Kenic led the Vikings (2-4) with 13 points, Seth Millner had 10 and Algevon Eichelberger had nine points and nine rebounds.

The top three stayed the same as expected. "If Alabama loses a close game to Georgia, Alabama is in the four-spot, and it's Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson and Georgia".

What is so head-scratching is how MI lost to Ohio State.

Northwestern has had the Big Ten West clinched for over two weeks now, which gave head coach Pat Fitzgerald a bit of freedom when it came to finishing out the regular season.

Ohio State won the Big Ten East and heads to Indianapolis to play Northwestern for the conference title next weekend. Ohio State also has the come-from-behind win at Penn State. Oklahoma ranks No. 34 in strength of schedule; Ohio State ranks No. 48.

Things could get real messy with LSU's loss to Texas A&M.

Of course, Georgia can mess it all up by beating Alabama and leaving both Oklahoma and Ohio State out as the CFP Selection Committee will not leave the Tide out of the field at this point.

No. 5 Oklahoma remains ahead of No. 6 Ohio State in what had to be the biggest debate of the process this week.

After humbling Michigan, Ohio State has climbed to No. 6 in the latest AP Poll.

Brady and the Wolverines will get their bragging rights back one day, but this L will sting for quite some time.

When asked about MI football's loss, Tom Brady was not thrilled with the program's inability to "win a big game".

If an Ohio State jump over Oklahoma happens (assuming a Sooners win), the committee will have some explaining to do. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who won last year's game in Ann Arbor after coming in for the injured J.T. Barrett, threw six touchdowns, a school record in the rivalry. Would wins over MI and Northwestern be enough to erase that gap while Oklahoma also beats ranked teams? Eight SEC teams are in the top 25 now that Missouri is at No. 24. If UCF loses, the Mountain West victor would more than likely find itself in a New Year's Six game.

The sense of confusion stems from the fact that the SEC and Big 12 have different policies regarding which teams are selected to play in the Sugar Bowl.

Washington State out of a New Year's Six Bowl?

Maybe the Rose if Ohio State is in the playoff.

The Cougars now sit at No. 13 in the rankings and behind four teams from Nos. Washington State could move up to No. 12 but that would be if Washington loses to Utah.
