I hate to say it, but the Carrington drug test failure changes this game. This is going to be much closer I think. I was expecting a bit of a blow-out.

I am a little worried.

Not sure how anyone could expect a blowout in either direction. Oregon is Oregon and will score a ton, while OSU's offense has really hit their stride. I was concerned for OSU's defense, but for whatever reason they seem to have found what works for them in their last few games.

I'm certainly hoping for an OSU win, but I'll be happy for Oregon if they win since they aren't FSU or an SEC team.

Wow.

Even with their third-string QB and giving up 4 turnovers, OSU managed to win and do so convincingly. Hats off to Oregon, they played tough and had me on edge after the opening drive and all through the 3rd quarter turnover-fest.

I will be very interested to see how things shake out in the offseason. Will Cardale declare for the draft? Will Braxton transfer? If all three come back, who will start? This is a young team that will mostly be back next season, so the sky's the limit for expectations.

O-H-!

I still say it should be an eight team playoff. Ohio St. dominating like it did helps with this. We would have a TCU/Ohio St. first round match up. A game everyone wants to see now.

Looks like (barring the next couple of playoffs) we'll have to wait until Sept. 15, 2018 @ TCU.

Personally, I would have preferred TCU in over FSU, but the committee wasn't going to throw out the only undefeated team. I don't know who else you would leave out given how things turned out, and I do believe that, with the last 3 games as evidence, OSU would beat TCU pretty handily.
