Big Ten in playoff projection

Submitted by crg on November 24th, 2018 at 5:55 PM

Just my opinion, but I'm willing to bet money on this outcome:

1) OSU rolls NW

2) OSU gets in CFP as #4, to much uproar by others

3) OSU gets rolled by Bama and the SEC dominance narrative continues

tbh I would be very surprised if Oklahoma gets in. 


We are going to be in the top 10 still after this loss, OSU will have much better wins than OU. Texas will play them close again because OU has no defense while OSU will destroy NW. They have a much better resume than OU. I would get some catharsis out of playing in the Rose Bowl while the best Bama team yet gets their CFP revenge on OSU.

Last time OSU made it to the playoff as the 4 seed they played Alabama, destroyed them, and won the National Championship.

It could happen again with the athletes they have and the way they played today.  When they put their mind to something...holy crap.

I think baring ND and/or Clemson losing, it is down to Oklahoma and Georgia. With Bama in even with a loss to Georgia. So if OU and Bama win the four willl be: Bama, Clemson, ND and OU.

OSU will beat Alabama. After what I saw today, you can that to the bank. Because the higher beings in this universe seem to pleasure themselves to watching Michigan suffer.

I agree with the who fucking cares sentiment but it's going to be Bama, Clemson, ND, Oklahoma. OSU gets the rose vs Washington. Michigan is going to draw Georgia in a NY6 bowl....and that makes me cringe

OSU is gonna squeak in again as Michigan, Wash St, and now Possibly ND losing! OSU w go from #10 to #5 and once Georgia loses to Bama they w squeak in at #4! 

WE FUCKED UP AGAIN ROYALY! Controlled our own destiny and shit the bed yet again. I’m so Fucking Salty! I don’t think I will ever get over this one. I just would of bet my ducking HOUSE that we would never give up 60 points! Let alone score 40 points and loose again. In fucking believable.

I think it depends on OU v Texas.  If Oklahoma beats Texas then they are a conference champ w 1 loss who beat the team that beat them (by 3).  Compare that to OSU who (presumably) wins their conference by annihilating the #4 team in the country but looking mediocre many games and losing once by 4 scores to a 6-6 team.  Either way expect Urban Xeyer to completely run up the score on NW to gain style points and a bump from recent bias.

So what happens if Texas defeats Oklahoma, Alabama crushes Georgia (Alabama will win this game BTW) and Northwestern defeats Ohio State?  Who gets the 4th CFP spot?  The committee would be forced to take a two loss team.  Oh sure, the preceding scenario is extremely unlikely, but its fun to speculate.  If OK, OSU and GA all lose, honestly....who gets that 4th CFP spot?
