Heather Dinich went on SportsCenter to talk about the impact the USC loss has on the College Football Playoff when it comes to Ohio State. Utah has opened a path for the Buckeyes to be included.

Utah is now the Pac-12 Champion after beating USC 47-24. Dinich seemed pretty confident that Ohio State can now slide into the No. 4 spot.

“I have no doubt that Ohio State will slide into that No. 4 spot over USC on Selection Sunday which will tumble out of the College Football Playoff conversation entirely. That’s why that 5th ranking was so important because No. 5 Ohio State has the edge over No. 6 Alabama. The committee will justify that top 4 spot because they still really value that season-opening win over Notre Dame and Ohio State has a top-10 win against Penn State.”
