Pat McAfee theorizes that 2 B1G teams could reach College Football Playoff
It all hinges on The Game.
Ohio State and Michigan have been waiting for their matchup on Nov. 26 for some time now. Revenge, a spot in the College Football Playoff and a potential B1G title are all on the line for the 2 B1G powerhouses, but College GameDay host Pat McAfee thinks there’s some room to share.
Well, in at least one way at least. While the 2 can’t share the B1G, they could share a spot in the Playoff. He theorized on College GameDay the likelihood of 2 B1G teams reaching the 4-team field at the end of the year.
“The last game of the year against Michigan, if Ohio State loses is there a gonna be a chance for 2 B1G teams make it into the College Football Playoff?” McAfee said. “Obviously Michigan would have to go on to win the B1G Championship against a B1G West that has 45 teams that could potentially win the B1G West.”
Of course, even if Michigan did go on to win a 2nd straight rivalry match against the Buckeyes, Ohio State would still need some help. Georgia seems to have locked up a spot, but the final 2 could be a fight between Tennessee, TCU, Oregon and the loser of The Game. Would the loser have enough of a resume to make it?
Only time will tell. First, both teams have to reach The Game undefeated.
