Buckeye blitz: No. 10 Ohio State blows out No. 4 MI

Urban Meyer contends that nobody around Ohio State will be talking about the College Football Playoff this week, even though the Buckeyes inserted themselves back into the national championship conversation with a blowout of MI.

Herbstreit thinks if Georgia plays Alabama close, the Bulldogs could have a case to remain at No. 4 over Oklahoma and Ohio State.

Maybe most satisfying of all, Ohio State made it 14 victories in the past 15 meetings against the team it loves to beat the most. "This is a game that's got years and miles behind".

Haskins and the Buckeyes carved up the top-ranked defense in the country for 567 yards.

Brady has a long history of making friendly wagers with former Ohio State players in the Patriots locker room over the result of that year's rivalry game. Harbaugh took ownership of a complete collapse by MI, but his players were not letting the coach take all the blame.

So, how did TB12 take his alma mater's humiliating loss? In his division, he's got one in Ohio State. A cloud of uncertainty hung over the Buckeyes throughout preseason practice and it has lingered. The committee has changed, with six new members this year, but that mantra hasn't.

Ohio State (11-1), meanwhile, is suddenly knocking on the playoff door. Oklahoma has a better offense; Ohio State has a slightly better defense.

Fading the 12-0 SU and 8-4 No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide isn't going to be anyone's idea of a good time, but +13 is too many points to pass up on with the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs on the SEC Championship Game odds. Should all that chaos happen (and there's less than a 2 percent chance it actually does, according to Playoff Predictor), UCF would rank last in ESPN's Strength of Record metric behind Georgia (7.4 percent chance the average Top 25 opponent achieves the same record), MI (19.1 percent), LSU (21 percent), Ohio State (23.1 percent) and Oklahoma (23.3 percent). "Jim Harbaugh right now I don't think has adjusted to what college football has become". In 2014, the only time Ohio State ever appeared in the top four was on Selection Day.
