NBC Sports projects Ohio State as lone B1G team in College Football Playoff
Penn State has done it.
The Nittany Lions defeated Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game last night in dramatic fashion, 38-31. After the incredible game, NBC Sports ranked the top-four teams in the country and projects just one B1G team in the College Football Playoff.
Hint: It’s not Penn State.
No. 1 Alabama
No. 2 Clemson
No. 3 Ohio State
No. 4 Washington
Now, of course, NBC Sports isn’t the be all end all, but it seems as though many are thinking the Buckeyes will be the representative of the B1G.
