As the group of reporters around Barrett chuckled, one remarked, "We don't control that". Meyer said. "They are dealing with the same issues". "That doesn't make sense to me". MI beats Ohio State next week. If the Buckeyes dispose of Michigan State, Michigan will be all that stands between the Buckeyes and the Playoff.
You see, even if Ohio State wins its final two regular-season games - including a sure-to-be-epic showdown with MI in The Game - it won't be able to claim a Big Ten East Division title or play for a conference championship if Penn State also wins its last two regular-season games.

Both of them agreed that if Wisconsin wins the conference, they would join the playoff along with Ohio State.

A one-loss Louisville resume will not match up with Ohio State's. "I think MI gave this one away".
