No Big Ten championship game appearance? No division title? That’s fine.

Ohio State is locked in.

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit thinks so, at least. Last night after all of Week 13’s games were wrapped up, a fan asked Herbie his thoughts on whether tOSU was still in play for a playoff invite, keeping in mind that it’ll be sitting at home next week when Penn State takes on Wisconsin for the B1G crown.

Herbstreit has no concerns for the resilient Buckeyes.

With its 30-27 double-overtime classic over Michigan yesterday, Ohio State does not control its own destiny but boasts a playoff-worthy resume. The Buckeyes finish the regular season with wins against five currently ranked opponents with its only loss coming by three points in Happy Valley to an opponent who has a chance to sneak into the top four conversation by the end of next week.

CBS Sports currently projects the Bucks to play Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
