No. 1 Ohio State storms back to beat No. 8 Wisconsin in Big Ten title game

Ohio State is heading to the College Football Playoff after a first-half scare from Wisconsin.

The Badgers went up 14-0 and led 21-7 at the half before No. 1 Ohio State scored 24-straight second half points to beat No. 8 Wisconsin 34-21 in the Big Ten championship game.

The win cements Ohio State’s status as a playoff team. But there could be some debate about the Buckeyes’ seed. No. 2 LSU beat No. 4 Georgia 37-10 in the SEC title game. Could the committee decide that Ohio State’s first-half struggles and LSU’s ease of victory over a higher-ranked opponent be enough to flip the teams?
