Ohio State Climbs To No. 6 In Latest AP Poll

Depending on whether Oklahoma reaches the playoff, the Camping World Bowl in Orlando and the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio loom as the most likely postseason destinations for the Mountaineers.

The loss dropped Jim Harbaugh to 0-4 against Ohio State and was Michigan's seventh consecutive loss in "The Game". Quality road win over Penn State.

Neither team was very good from long range.

That is where the famous "eye test" comes into play.

"If you took a poll of Clemson fans I'm guessing Ohio State would be the preferred opponent". S&P+ projected that MI would edge Ohio State by 4.7 points, and the spread closed with U-M favored by 4.5 points according to OddsShark. But its offense is a sight to behold, and so is Kyler Murray, who is making a serious push for the Heisman Trophy. But the Sooners' offense has to scare the daylights out of Clemson fans, particularly after Jake Bentley and SC carved up the Tigers' defense a few days ago. Oklahoma is averaging almost nine yards a play in 2018 as its defense has allowed 40 or more points in each of the last four games. OK, maybe they showed that throughout the season.

Maybe most satisfying of all, Ohio State has won 14 of the last 15 meetings against the team it loves to beat the most.

Teams from the conference make up almost a third of the top 25. Former Patriots linebacker and current Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, a proud Ohio State alum, once made Brady wear his Buckeyes jersey at practice after they defeated the Wolverines.

The Sooners stayed ahead of the Buckeyes entering conference championship weekend. Oklahoma plays a more hard, ranked opponent in rival Texas, another opportunity to impress the committee. Ohio State beat MI 62-39.

But that's a big if, right?

With No. 1 Alabama playing No. 4 Georgia in the SEC championship Saturday, the belief is that OU would move ahead of the Bulldogs if the Crimson Tide can take care of business.

"I mean, we've lost to them so much", Brady said. The Longhorns gave the Sooners their only loss of the season.

This was Harbaugh's chance to finally best Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes - the moment he could finally prove himself as one of the top coaches in the country and get the big win.

There's one more ranking that should be noted this week, and that's UCF.

But the committee has been favorable to the Tigers so far, despite two losses.

The next five in the rankings probably don't have a chance at making the playoffs unless a freakish chain of events happens.

Knox went down with a foot injury in the win against MI and won't be able to recover quick enough to play a week later. Over its past two games, UCF has given up 23 total points and played its best football of the season. Thanks to having wins over both teams, Northwestern owned the tiebreakers and the division. 7-12 that have no shot to win their conferences.
