Right now, Ohio State is on the outside looking in on a berth in the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes sit at No. 5 in the country following the unveiling of the first rankings on Tuesday.
The committee put fellow Big Ten team 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 hottest teams in the nation.

The Buckeyes have won six in a row, including a ranked win over then-No. 20 Penn State last Saturday. In those last six games, Ryan Day’s squad is scoring an average of 50.8 points per game and have scored 50-plus 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 every single one of their losses has been by one possession, including three against ranked opponents.

With Saturday’s matchup, it’ll be the sixth straight year the two programs have met. 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’s a prevailing sentiment among college football circles that Nebraska coach Scott Frost could be on the hot seat and that his seat is ever-warming. A blowout loss at home may catalyze and expedite things for the former Husker standout quarterback.
