Week 8 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

The playoff picture finally changed with Penn State’s victory over Ohio State. The Buckeyes are by no means out of the playoff race though. Ohio State has what will likely be an epic showdown against Michigan looming on November 26th, but they cannot look past teams like Nebraska either. If the Buckeyes win out, they will play in the Big Ten title game and with a win there, they are back in the playoffs. Certainly a one-loss Big Ten champion will make it. Perhaps even a two-loss Big Ten champion, but for Ohio State the only way to get to a Big Ten title is to go through Ann Arbor.
