Big Ten championship has huge implications for Ohio State

No. 4 MI (10-1, 8-0, No. 4 CFP) likely will make its first trip to the College Football Playoff if it beats Ohio State and then takes care of Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship.

The Wolverines may be the favorite to win this year, but Ohio State has owned The Game recently.

MI got as close as 7-6 and 21-19 but a blow out third quarter led the Buckeyes to a win and an 11-1 season.

And now, despite all the dysfunction at Ohio State this season - both on and off the field - the Buckeyes will face No. 20 Northwestern next week in Indianapolis with a chance to repeat as Big Ten champs and maybe even make the playoff.

The Wolverines finish at 10-2.

Even if Dwayne Haskins Jr. never plays another down for Ohio State his name will live in Buckeyes lore. "I don't really recall everything that happened in that game, but just being able to go into that atmosphere and that environment meant well for me going into this season".

"Unfortunately, I lost a bet to Nate Ebner and already paid him his money", Brady said Monday morning during his weekly interview with WEEI's Mut and Callahan.

Haskins finished with 396 yards and set the Big Ten season record for TD passes with 42. "Jim Harbaugh right now I don't think has adjusted to what college football has become".

Ohio State: Meyer was suspended after a university investigation into his handling of former assistant coach Zach Smith, who has been accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife.

Ohio State (11-1), meanwhile, is suddenly knocking on the playoff door.

"To me, I do think they control their own destiny if chalk holds", Sallee said. Each won on the road against a spunky defense (Iowa State, Michigan State). Oklahoma has a better loss, but Ohio State has a better win.
