Due to the chaos in College Football right now whereby top ranked teams suddenly find themselves dealing with upsets, the Ohio State Buckeyes could still be considered for a spot in the Playoffs.  BetOnline has them currently at 20/1 odds of winning the College Football Championship game with a payout potential of $2000 for every $100 bet.

Ohio State will come into Week 12 with two losses, however, other top ranked teams have since endured some misfortune, including the Georgia Bulldogs last week.

This has once again opened the doors for Ohio State.

ESPN.com reported:

On Monday and Tuesday this week, Meyer cut off questions about the small chance his team has of slipping back into the College Football Playoff hunt before they could reporters could finish asking them.

"There will be zero conversation about what happened before and what’s going to happen in the future," Meyer said. Zero.”

The number the Playoff committee had in mind this week was nine. That's where they stuck the Buckeyes in this week's ranking, making Auburn and Notre Dame the only two-loss teams ranked higher.

If the same team that rolled over Michigan State shows up the next three weeks, the Buckeyes will have a good shot, ESPN suggests.

The current odds of winning the 2018 College Football Championship game appear below.
