Ohio State had a tough time with Michigan State on Saturday, coming away with a 17-16 victory in less than ideal conditions in East Lansing.
After that result, the Buckeyes come in at No. 2 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings as we come down the stretch. They remain behind Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide, just as the rest of the country has all season.
The Buckeyes will have one final test in the regular season against the Michigan Wolverines. A win there would help the Buckeyes in fulfilling their College Football Playoff hopes moving forward, whether that turns into a Big Ten Championship game appearance or not.
Navy and Houston were newcomers to the rankings at No. 25 and No. 20 respectively. The Big Ten was represented well in the top 10 with Michigan at No. 3, Wisconsin at No. 6, and Penn State at No. 7 to go along with the Bucks at No. 2.
