“I Think We Deserve to Be The No. 1 Team in the Country”

With both LSU and Ohio State making a case for the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff the committee has a decision to make on Sunday.

But Ryan Day has already made his.

“I think we deserve to be the No. 1 team in the country," Day said following Ohio State's 34-21 win over Wisconsin.

Day said Ohio State has earned the top spot by playing what he believes is the toughest schedule in the country down the stretch, defeating three top-15 opponents – Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin (for the second time) – in consecutive weeks.
