We need MSU to crush Iowa. Two reasons for this. 1. If Iowa loses big, that should put us in the Rose Bowl. No one is going to put Iowa ahead of us if we only lost to Spary by 3 in the rain on a last second field goal and they get blown out. I wouldn't be upset if we went to the Fiesta Bowl though and got to steam roll Notre Dame. 2. If Florida were to beat Alabama and USC can beat Stanford, we should get in with the the No. 4 spot. We also need Clemson, not North Carolina to win. I would not be surprised to see North Carolina jump us if they knock off Clemson big.
We should have beat MSU, bad play calling and execution there. Sparty won fair and square, but it had more to do with us beating ourselves in that game. Does anyone really want to play us right now, especially on a neutral field? I don't think so. People are talking about Oklahoma having a good defense. I didn't know there was such a thing in the Big 12. Ohio State is THE best team in the land, I have full confidence that if we find our way into the CFP, we are coming home with the trophy.
