Big Ten Championship 2017

Big Ten turf

Alabama gets rewarded for having the cupcake Mercer on their schedule while Ohio State had an additional conference game. Running back Chris James's one-yard plunge cut the lead to five, and after a lengthy delay to fix a patch of ripped turf at the goal line, Hornibrook completed a two-point conversion throw to tight end Troy Fumagalli.

Ohio State and Wisconsin have both proved their mastery on the gridiron time after time this season, but their basketball counterparts can not say the same on the hoops court. His touchdown immediately followed Dobbins's 77-yard run, a sprint that set the Buckeyes single-season freshman rushing record, breaking the mark Maurice Clarett had set in 2002. Wisconsin settled for three points after recovering a fumble at the Buckeyes' 11-yard line but netting just one yard on the possession. Ohio State certainly had better high-end wins than Alabama, using the current playoff rankings. The Badgers were fourth in the most recent poll, and OSU also scored victories against No. 9 Penn State - which was ranked No. 2 in the Associated Press top 25 at the time - and No. 16 Michigan State.

Essentially, had Ohio State's early season loss to No. 2 Oklahoma been its only one, we're looking at a high-likelihood that the Buckeyes rank number one. "When we looked at Ohio State, when you looked at their resume it was impressive, but it wasn't enough for the selection committee to place them in above Alabama".

UW sought its 15th Big Ten title and first since 2012 on Saturday but left with its third conference championship game defeat in the past four years. 2 Oklahoma and a 31-point road loss to Iowa.




Barrett's status for the game is in question after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Sunday to remove a piece of torn cartilage in his right knee. But if Barrett needs to come out, they will turn to Haskins, a redshirt freshman, who was good in relief last week against MI and could try to duplicate Cardale Jones' fill-in performance in the 2014 title game against Wisconsin. Or will it Big Ten Champ Ohio State claim the fourth and final spot? Following the 2016 season, Clemson returned the favor with a 35-31 victory that came on Deshaun Watson's 2-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow with 1 second remaining. Hornibrook passed for 238 yards and two interceptions. The crux of his argument: The Big Ten plays nine conference games and had the fewest matchups (three) with FCS opponents among Power Five conferences.

Dobbins finished with 174 yards on 17 carries, while Barrett completed 12-of-26 passes for 211 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The lead swung back to the Buckeyes courtesy of Barrett's 57-yard toss to running back Parris Campbell, who broke multiple tackles to score his third receiving touchdown of the season and conclude the scoring in a riveting first quarter.
