What USC’s Blowout Loss Means For Ohio State In The College Football Playoff

The Utah Utes dominated USC, 47-23 to roll to the 2022 Pac-12 conference championship.

More importantly for Ohio State, the lopsided defeat meant that Lincoln Riley and the Trojans will almost certainly not be a part of the four-team field for the College Football Playoff. For No. 5 Ohio State, that is extremely good news.

In this very, very extended live episode of the Buckeyes TomOrrow Morning podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Kevin Noon of BuckeyeHuddle.com join analytics expert Ty Shoemaker and host Tom Orr to break down all of the angles to the College Football Playoff picture.

Where do the Buckeyes stand now, and who would they be most likely to face in a semifinal?

How could that change if there are additional upsets on Saturday?
