Morning Wrap: Ohio St Makes Playoff Push by Dominating Wisconsin


So the Ohio State Buckeyes sent a message about the inaugural College Football Playoff.

The want in.

The Buckeyes took care of business Saturday night in a big way, slaughtering the Wisconsin Badgers 59-0 for the Big 10 title in a game that wasn't that close.

Third string QB Cardale Jones was every bit as impressive as his predecessors, winning game MVP honors after throwing for 257 yards and 3 TD's, leading his team to the win. RB Ezekiel Elliot chipped in 220 yards and 2 TD's running the ball.

tOSU's defense shut down Badgers star RB Melvin Gordon, holding him to 76 yards. And they picked off 3 Joel Stave passes, shutting the allegedly powerful Wisconsin offense down.

The win moves Ohio State to 12-1 overall and likely 4th place in this weeks final College Football Playoff poll. Mind you they shouldn't get that berth, to do it, they'll leapfrog both Baylor and TCU who are more deserving.

But, the TV pundits and network that holds the rights have already been playing up the Buckeyes, saying they'll do it. Which means it's highly likely to happen.

Enough of that, let's check out the game highlights...most of which belong to Ohio State.
