The Ohio State Buckeyes have had a great past two weeks. They knocked off then No. 10 Nebraska by a score of 62-3, and then did the same this past weekend against Maryland.

Losses in front of them have the Buckeyes ranked No. 2 this week in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, and the race is now more interesting than it has been all season.

The Buckeyes have games against Michigan State and Michigan left, and will hope for similar performances to continue to make their case to be the in College Football Playoff. Ohio State would also greatly benefit from either a Rutgers or Michigan State victory over Penn State for Big Ten East tiebreak purposes.

We’ll see what the future holds, but until then, the Bucks are in good shape.
