Georgia and Michigan have each won their respective conference championships and remain undefeated. But losses at the hands of TCU and USC open the door for Ohio State, who lost by 23 points to Michigan a week ago, and possibly even Alabama, to sneak into the playoffs.

Read some of what Cleveland.com’s Nathan Baird wrote about how the Buckeyes took to social media after USC’s blowout loss in the Pac-12 championship game to Utah on Friday night.
After a mostly silent week in the wake of a humiliating home loss to Michigan, Ohio State Football The players found their voice again on Friday night.
They started ringing around midnight as Utah put the finishing touches on one 47-24 batting of USC in the Pac-12 championship game. Nothing will be official until Sunday, but the Buckeyes knew what that likely meant for them.
“Return Time”, recipient Emeka Egbuka wrote on Twitter.
None of the previous 118 incarnations of The Game was followed by a coda like this. From now on, thanks to a combination of a divisionless Big Ten and a playoff expansion in 2024, that rivalry will include a path to redemption like the one just unfolding.
What would once have been a season-defining, postseason-diverted loss to Michigan only faltered the Buckeyes instead. It felt exactly how a belly punch should feel, but it wasn’t fatal.
Barring an unexpected change of precedent by the college football playoff selection committee on Sunday, OSU’s national championship hopes have been reignited by Utah’s defensive resurgence and USC’s homage to the dangers of arm tackling.
A source tells cleveland.com The Buckeyes were back in training last week, and staff at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center turned their attention to Georgia. Ohio State entered the game with the second-best odds of winning the national championship (+230 at DraftKings), behind only the Bulldogs (-140).
The pieces that have made OSU a strong contender remain more or less in place. However, weak points must be addressed before kickoff in either the Peach Bowl or the Fiesta Bowl on December 31st.
Ohio State needs to get well first. Jaxon Smith-Njigba was not ruled out for the playoffs, although Ryan Day and others felt it was better not to be overly optimistic about the receiver’s potential return. The Buckeyes played The Game running back without TreVeyon Henderson and right guard Matt Jones. No. 2 running back Miyan Williams tried to play but had to shut down.
