Don't look now, but Ohio State's right back in the national title race. In fact, the Buckeyes are near the front of it.
After a wild weekend in college football that saw four top-10 teams fall, Ohio State now has the second-best odds to win the national title, behind only Alabama, according to Bovada's most recent odds. The Buckeyes' odds increased from 15/2 at this time last week to 5/1 currently.
J.T. Barrett's odds to win the Heisman Trophy also saw a big bump this week after his performance against Nebraska, moving from 28/1 last week to 9/1 this week. His odds are behind only Saquan Barkley of Penn State (7/5), Bryce Love of Stanford (7/5) and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma (11/2).
Of course, both of those odds are likely change drastically – one way or another – after Ohio State's heavyweight bout with Penn State on Oct. 28.
