The Spartans played a great game, made a lot of Ohio State fans nervous, but fell a two-point conversion short of defeating the #2 ranked team in the country! Alas! All eyes are now on next week’s match-up between #2 Ohio State and #3 Michigan. We shall see how the playoff picture changes (if at all) on Tuesday evening.
There are only two unbeaten teams remaining (Alabama and Western Michigan) and the Big Ten Conference has five teams in the CFP rankings (four in the top-10): Ohio State [#2], Michigan [#3], Wisconsin [#7], Penn State[#8], and Nebraska [#18].
Next up for the Spartans: on the road to visit the Nittany Lions of Penn State. Go Green!
