Among the teams contending for a playoff spot, the intrigue is not about who No. 3 Ohio State is playing as much as who will be play playing for the Buckeyes this weekend.
Ohio State seems to be on track to play at Michigan State on Saturday after a spike in COVID-19 cases in the program forced a cancellation of last week’s road trip to Illinois.
Coach Ryan Day said he expected to the Buckeyes to be short-handed but did not elaborate. If Ohio State has one more game canceled it would be unable to meet the Big Ten’s minimum game played to be eligible for the conference title game.
Even with the uncertainty, the Buckeyes (4-0) are more than a three-touchdown favorite against the Spartans (2-4).
No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 4 Clemson are also favored by at least 21 points.
There are two matchups of ranked teams, including one in the Big Ten, and an interesting road test for No. 5 Texas A&M. But otherwise all eyes will be on who is missing for the Buckeye
