Ohio State lost to Penn State last night, right?

If they did, then why does CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm still project the Buckeyes to make the College Football Playoff at the end of the year? Well, just because the No. 2 team in the country lost doesn’t mean they fall out of the eventual top-four completely.

Here’s what Palm had to say about what he believes is likely to happen for the remainder of the season.

“Every other team that has a shot at beating Ohio State will have to do so either in Columbus (Nebraska and Michigan both come to town) or Indianapolis in the Big Ten title game,” Palm said. “Ohio State would win a three-way tie with Michigan or Penn State, should that occur, as the Nittany Lions’ loss to Pitt would drop them from the tiebreaker and the Buckeyes would have a win over the Wolverines head-to-head in that scenario.”

You’re in luck, Buckeye fans. The season apparently isn’t over just yet.
