Right now, Ohio State is on the outside looking towards a spot in the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes sit No. 5 in the country following the opening of the top rankings on Tuesday.
The committee placed fellow Big Ten Michigan State in the top 4 at 8-0 over the Buckeyes, who lost in Week 2 to Oregon. But since that loss to the Ducks, Ohio State has been one of the most popular teams in the nation.
The Buckeyes have won six in a row, including a qualifying win over then-No. 20 Penn State last Saturday. In those last six games, Ryan Day’s team is scoring an average of 50.8 points per game and has scored more than 50 points in four of its last five games.
Ohio State is traveling to Lincoln to take on a struggling Nebraska team. The Cornhuskers are 3-6 this season and each of their losses has been by one possession, including three against ranked opponents.
With the showdown on Saturday, it will be the sixth year in a row that the two programs have faced each other. Ohio State has won the game each of the last five years and by an average margin of 36.4 points in that span.
There is a prevailing sentiment among college football circles that Nebraska coach Scott Frost could be in the hot seat and that his seat is always warm. A landslide loss at home can catalyze and speed things up for Husker’s former standout quarterback.
Here’s how to watch this week 10 Big Ten showdown.
