COLUMBUS, Ohio — No. 6 Ohio State hosts tenth-ranked Nebraska at 8 p.m. ET Saturday.
The Buckeyes (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) have hit a bit of a rough patch after looking so dominant early in the season. In the last three games, they’ve gone 2-1 but no game has been decided by more than seven points. The initial College Football Playoff poll has the Buckeyes just outside the top-four; a win over the tenth-ranked Cornhuskers (7-1, 4-1) would probably propel the Buckeyes up the rankings.
It would also continue to set the stage for a winner-take-all season finale against Michigan.
