After Ohio State’s second loss of the season, a 42-27 decision to then-No. 5 Michigan, the Buckeyes find themselves at No. 7 in the penultimate College Football Playoff rankings.
The Big Ten Championship Game will feature No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 13 Iowa, the first contest without Ohio State since 2016.
Elsewhere, the SEC title game will boast a No. 1 vs. No. 3 matchup between Georgia and Alabama. The winner is in, and there’s still a potential path for the team that drops that game depending on how the final weekend shakes out. In the Big 12, No. 5 Oklahoma State could lock in a playoff spot with a win over No. 9 Baylor, but the Bears could cause some chaos with a win.
Here are the full rankings:
