Oklahoma stays ahead of Ohio State in College Football Playoff rankings

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. The Wolverines have beaten three of the four teams it lost to past year, leaving Ohio State as the last one. OU puts themselves in a great position if they can beat Texas in the Big 12 Championship.

Last season set a precedent, when one-loss non-champion Alabama made it, and ended up winning the national title.

Finally, the humiliation came to a slow, painful end for Harbaugh as the final seconds ticked away and Ohio State walked away with a 62-39 victory.

But what if Georgia wins?

"I just ran into a good Ohio State team", MI quarterback Shea Patterson said. Given that West Virginia beat Texas on its home field, that scenario seems especially plausible.

"We haven't beaten them in a while", Bush said.

"As the committee voted it, they voted Oklahoma 5, Ohio State 6". Oklahoma leads the nation in scoring (50.3 points per game) and total offense (583.8 yards per game), and as last weekend's 59-56 win over West Virginia showed, the Sooners can win with offense. "Then as we were preparing for IL, I watched all of Ohio State's games leading into this weekend".


MI came into this year's game as road favorites, ranked as the No. 4 team in the country. That's the most MI has ever allowed in regulation against any opponent ever, let alone Ohio State.

A similar situation isn't out of the question when the final rankings are revealed on Sunday.

"I think going into the season there was a lot of uncertainties there, a lot of unknowns", Ohio State co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Ryan Day said.

If an Ohio State jump over Oklahoma happens (assuming a Sooners win), the committee will have some explaining to do.

Ohio State receiver Chris Olave (17) celebrates his touchdown against MI during the first half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. Would wins over MI and Northwestern be enough to erase that gap while Oklahoma also beats ranked teams? Oklahoma has three top-25 wins; Ohio State has two.

The issue wasn't relevant a year ago since the Sugar Bowl was one of the national semifinals, negating its usual contractual obligation to match the best non-playoff teams from the SEC and Big 12.
