In what many expected to be a bad week in college football, ended up being one of the more exciting weeks we’ve had all season. The No. 2, 3, and 4th ranked teams in the nation all fell, and the Buckeyes raced past Maryland for a 62-3 win.
With that, the Buckeyes come in this week ranked No. 2 in the latest AP and Amway Coaches Polls. The Bucks would have benefitted from a Michigan victory over Iowa in terms of Big Ten tiebreakers, but they still have a path to the playoff.
It looks like we could be in for one of the more unpredictable seasons we’ve seen since the College Football Playoff was implemented, but with a few more weeks of football, things could get clear pretty fast.
