Saturday’s slate of conference championships Saturday didn't even kick off before Ohio State felt confident it would hear its name called as a College Football Playoff participant Sunday.

Utah defeated USC 47-24 in the Pac-12 championship Friday night, giving the Trojans their second loss of the season. This likely opens the door for OSU, ranked No. 5 in the college football playoff rankings this week, to leap past No. 4 USC and earn a College Football Playoff berth. 

Before Utah coach Kyle Whittingham left the FOX postgame show set, Urban Meyer told him, “I got a feeling, Kyle, in Columbus, Ohio, you’re not gonna have to pay for a meal for a while.”

Whittingham responded with "Coach Day, you're welcome." 

The win from Utah sent social media ablaze, as Ohio State players, football staffers and former Buckeyes tweeted their thoughts about the Buckeyes potentially making the CFP after missing it a year ago. 

We've compiled a bunch of their reactions below.

A few of Ohio State's commitments also got in on the action.
