The Ohio State Buckeyes are the one top-eight staff within the Faculty Soccer Playoff rankings to not have a convention championship recreation on the schedule. Lots of people are asking the straightforward query of how can that be. There’s a easy reply that explains all of it.

The Huge Ten Convention is at present cut up into two divisions: the East and West. The groups with the very best report in every division face off in opposition to one another within the Huge Ten Convention Championship recreation each season.

Ohio State is within the East Division with the Indiana Hoosiers, Michigan State Spartans, Maryland Terrapins, Penn State Nittany Lions and Michigan Wolverines.

Why is Ohio State not within the Huge 10 championship?

Ohio State isn’t within the Huge 10 championship as they misplaced to Michigan. The 30-24 defeat in “The Sport” meant that OSU completed 2nd within the Huge Ten East, knocking them out of rivalry for the championship recreation.

Which means they don’t seem to be within the Huge Ten Convention Championship recreation because the Michigan Wolverines gained the division and can face off in opposition to the West Division winner Iowa Hawkeyes. That leaves Ohio State idle this week however the place does that depart their probabilities to make the Faculty Soccer Playoff?

Can the Ohio State Buckeyes nonetheless make the Faculty Soccer Playoff?

That is going to be extraordinarily tough for the Ohio State Buckeyes to do as they’re at present sixth within the Faculty Soccer Playoff ballot. Not enjoying within the Huge Ten Convention Championship recreation goes to make issues tougher.

To ensure that the Buckeyes to make the CFP, they’d have to be one of many prime 4 groups chosen by the Faculty Soccer Playoff committee. In actuality, the possibilities are slim for them to make the leap.

For the Buckeyes to make the Faculty Soccer Playoff, they would wish to finish up leaping two groups. They already theoretically jumped one staff because the Oregon Geese have been fifth within the Faculty Soccer Playoff rankings and misplaced final night time to the Washington Huskies for the second time.

If Ohio State must make the highest 4, they would wish one other staff in entrance of them to lose at this time, however the odds are usually not of their favor.

Whereas it’s not a good place, if that they had gained final week in opposition to Michigan, they’d be within the Huge Ten Convention Championship recreation and within the driver’s seat.

They want one other staff to lose and with Florida State being fourth and probably on upset alert, that might be their opening. After all, that’s, so long as one other staff behind them, just like the Texas Longhorns or Alabama Crimson Tide, don’t leapfrog over them.
