Sorry BucksHave7, but you're incorrect. If ttun loses a game before The Game, and PSU wins out, then PSU wins the tie-breaker against the Buckeyes since they won the head-to-head (remember, PSUs only other loss was a non-conference game to Pitt, which doesn't count in determining our conference champion). So, if PSU doesn't lose another game, they have the advantage over the Buckeyes regardless of how much better the Buckeyes may be. So, there are two hopes:
1. PSU gets another loss, and the Buckeyes win out; so that even if ttun is undefeated going into The Game, the Buckeyes would win that tie-breaker because of the head-to-head W.
2. Since ttun already beat PSU, and PSU beat the Buckeyes, it means that if all three make it to the final weekend, with PSU not losing and OSU beating ttun, then they all end up in a three-way tie. the tie breakers would come down to who has the highest ranking between the three by the CFP Committee, which the Buckeyes probably would get the nod (but still not 100%, remember in 2014, the head-to-head winner between Baylor and TCU ended up ranked behind the team they beat, and the same could be done for ttun if they lose a squeeker at the Shoe).
3. Best case scenario is for the Buckeyes to win-out, and for PSU and ttun to lose another game, or more, because... Schadenfreude
