Iowa fans revel in keeping Ohio State out of College Football Playoff

NEW ORLEANS LA- JANUARY 02 Baker Mayfield #6 of the Oklahoma Sooners reacts after a touchdown against the Auburn Tigers during the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes Benz Superdome

This determined who will make the College Football Playoff, along with the other 21 teams that fill out the top 25. We respect it, move forward, keep swinging and the most important thing is to go win this next game for our seniors. "And so we played three top-five teams, and we won two of them". But coach Nick Saban says he expects his defense to be close to full strength by the time the Crimson Tide faces the Tigers on January 1. Unfortunately for them, their lack of a championship will be a factor for them, as well as their lack of big wins. Ohio State was the first, being selected last season over Big Ten champion Penn State.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield is playing like the Heisman Trophy frontrunner and Oklahoma's offense is a well-oiled machine at this point.

One of the asterisks next to OSU's resume is the 55-24 loss to Iowa earlier in the season. Alabama was at No. 1 before the final week and was at No. 5 entering championship weekend. They avenged their only loss of the season, a 40-17 defeat at Auburn on November 11.

Ohio State is returning to the stadium where the Buckeyes won the first College Football Playoff championship under the current system.
