Ryan Day described his team’s feelings after Utah’s win over USC gave Ohio State a 2nd shot at the College Football Playoff.

Ohio State needed Utah to beat USC in the Pac-12 Championship and it worked out in Ohio State’s favor. In the latest Playoff rankings, Ohio State was on the outside looking in at the top 4 teams. Ohio State fell out of the top 4 with a 45-23 loss to Michigan in Week 13.

After that loss, Ohio State required help from other teams to reach the Playoff. With Friday’s loss for USC, Ohio State is in a position to win a national championship. While appearing on Saturday’s episode of College GameDay, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day spoke about his team’s 2nd chance at the Playoff.

“You get an opportunity to go play in this thing, you’re two games away from a national championship after feeling like, a few days ago, your season was over,” Day said.

He detailed the change in perspective that occurred in the days after the loss to Michigan.

“It has been an emotional roller coaster. When you go through a few days where you think maybe your whole season is gone and all of a sudden, you start to build hope and start to see the opportunity where everything is right in front of you,” Day said.
