Ohio State at Wisconsin

They can not know for sure until Sunday afternoon, but Ohio State went to bed believing it is one of the four best teams in the country.

But if the Buckeyes capture their 36th conference title, they might need help to reach college football's final four. The fourth will be a matter of subjectivity. The Buckeyes won 27-21 in the Big Ten championship game, and they have a slightly-better resume then the Crimson Tide.

That led to an 84-yard touchdown pass from J.T. Barrett to wide receiver Terry McLourin after McLourin burned Badgers safety Joe Ferguson in man-to-man coverage. "I think our efforts to play more conference games, to schedule up to a reasonable degree, to reduce the number of mismatches should serve us well". Also the wins we had, the big-time wins and all the other stuff they consider. Whether the committee buys the Buckeyes' argument is a question we won't know the answer to until Sunday afternoon.

The senior aggravated his already sore right knee last week in a 31-20 win against MI when a cameraman tried to squeeze by him on the sideline, an incident that drew condemnation from Coach Urban Meyer during Ohio State's postgame news conference. The Buckeyes also own three victories over top-25 opponents, with one of their losses coming against Oklahoma, the Big 12 champion and a lock for the College Football Playoff.

Matic suffered a muscular injury while playing against Watford on Tuesday, and had to be taken off nine minutes into the second half.

However, that "2" in the loss column for Ohio State will make the decision very hard, especially since one of those losses was a 55-24 defeat to Iowa a month ago. "And we're conference champions".

After dropping out of the top four with a loss to Auburn earlier this season, the Bulldogs are once again in position to play on New Year's Day. In addition, they can point to Penn State past year and Stanford in 2015. They were sitting at No. 6 in the first CFP ranking of the season and had chances to move up with Michigan State, Michigan and a potential Big Ten title game waiting on the schedule. The most interesting part of the committee's decision was that a week prior, chairman of the committee Kirby Hocutt had said there was little separation between the two teams. The Badgers' first of few promising first-half drives ended when Hornibrook under-threw a fade route to Fumagalli in the red zone, giving Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward an opportunity for an interception.

Did Indianapolis just provide us the final Playoff participant?

"I feel it's about the four top teams who are playing their best at this time, and I feel like we're one of them". The Big Ten has a zillion living alumni, and now three of the four teams in the playoffs are located in the southeast, a lack of geographic diversity that is bad for television ratings.
