I sure hope not.#2 vs #5 November 2nd. Miami won't lay down like Clemson.
The thing Ohio State had going for them is they only had 2 tough road games; Michigan and Northwestern. They got all other quality opponents at home. Thing is, their pass defense has been shown to be very suspect recently... especially if you have dynamic TEs. Michigan has Devin Funchess. Penn State has 2 solid TEs in Jesse James and Kyle Carter. Bradley Roby has also struggled a bit this year so going against guys like Allen Robinson, the IU WRs, and Jeremy Gallon isn't going to be fun.I'd probably put them at 5 by default after Bama, Oregon, Clemson and FSU. Then Miami, LSU, Baylor, Missouri, OSU, and Stanford to round out my top 10. Honestly 5-9 can go in any order with Stanford at 10. At the end of the day, LSU vs Bama, Oregon vs Stanford, FSU vs Clemson, Miami vs FSU will separate pretenders from contenders. Mizzou still plays SC, Manziel, and Bama/LSU in SECCG. Without Franklin, it's not happening for them. Baylor has Oklahoma, Okie State and Texas Tech. Decent teams but not enough put them in the MNC even if they go undefeated. OSU could lose to Michigan. Hell they could lose to Penn State or Indiana. Either way, too weak of a schedule to get them in unless everyone else beats each other up leaving OSU able to get in by default.
