Ohio State Climbs To No. 6 In Latest AP Poll

Dwayne Haskins threw six touchdown passes, freshman Chris Olave had a breakout performance and No. 10 Ohio State continued its mastery over No. 4 MI with a record-setting 62-39 victory Saturday that sends the Buckeyes to the Big Ten championship game. With a win, the Knights will most likely be headed to their second consecutive New Year's Six access bowl game.

The committee went with Oklahoma at No. 5, putting the Sooners in a great position to move up into the final top four Sunday. Harbaugh took ownership of a complete collapse by MI, but his players were not letting the coach take all the blame.

When it comes to OU head coach Lincoln Riley, his thoughts are all on No. 14 Texas and winning the Big 12 championship this weekend. Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who won last year's game in Ann Arbor after coming in for the injured J.T. Barrett, threw six touchdowns, a school record in the rivalry. "You get a ring when you win this championship, and that's always the conversation around here".

Who's got the better chance of making it in? We knew we had to win this game. That's not a surprise to anybody. "If I want that to happen, I have to make sure mine is there as well". "And to come back against your rival and play like that, that's a focused team that loves each other and cares about each other".

Sooners and Longhorns kick off championship Saturday, getting things going 11 a.m.at AT&T Stadium. If the Crimson Tide lose a close game to the Bulldogs, is there anything that would convince the committee Oklahoma or Ohio State is the better team - especially since Alabama has been ranked No. 1 all season?

The Michigan Wolverines had a clear path to the College Football Playoffs (CFP). That's the most MI has ever allowed in regulation against any opponent ever, let alone Ohio State.

The only hope for Ohio State to jump Oklahoma now with both teams winning is if the Buckeyes put up such a big number on the Wildcats that it can not be ignored.

No. 10 in this week's Associated Press poll, will play Utah (9-3) in Friday's Pac-12 championship game.

In the 115th meeting between two of college football's most storied schools, Ohio State scored more points than it ever had against MI - more points than any team has ever scored in regulation against the Wolverines. Northwestern actually dropped from No. 19 to No. 21.
