With Saturday’s victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions it is safe to say that we know now who the elite is in the Big Ten – West. Yes! this college football game could have gone either way because the Ohio State Buckeyes are good, and the Nittany Lions did have the slight advantage with it being in their hostile environment. I, and I’m sure many others thought that the Nittany Lions would have escaped with the victory.
With this victory in Happy Valley (Pennsylvania), the Buckeyes just proved that they most certainly belong in the top 4 with the Alabama Crimson Tide, Georgia Bulldogs, and Clemson Tigers. In order to seal the Big Ten – East and a trip to the Big Ten Championship game, the Buckeyes need to get passed the Indiana Hoosiers, Michigan State Spartans, Maryland Terrapins, and Michigan Wolverines in the next upcoming weeks.
As of this week, the Buckeyes have the higher percentage to win against what is left in the Big Ten – East, but as mentioned in College football – week 4, mother nature tends to throw curve balls in the fall months which brings unpredictable outcomes.
