Ohio State makes case for College Football Playoff

Ohio State makes case for College Football Playoff

Cardale Jones threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns, Ezekiel Elliott ran for a career-high 220 yards and two scores and No. 6 Ohio State made an emphatic statement with a 59-0 rout over No. 11 Wisconsin in Saturday’s Big Ten championship game.

Now the Buckeyes (12-1, 8-0 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) must wait to see if they’ve done enough to earn one of the four spots in this year’s inaugural playoff.

“I don’t think there’s any doubt we’re one of the top four teams in America,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said.

Ohio State has won 11 straight, this time with Jones, who started the season No. 3 on the quarterback depth chart. Jones finished 12 of 17 and led the Buckeyes to scores on five of their first six possessions, building a 38-0 halftime lead.

Melvin Gordon ran for 76 yards on 26 carries as the Badgers (10-3, 7-1) had a seven-game winning streak snapped.

Other game: No. 1 Alabama 42, No. 14 Missouri 13
Blake Sims threw a pair of touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry each had a couple of touchdown runs, and top-ranked Alabama (12-1) pulled away from Missouri (10-3) in the fourth quarter to win its 24th Southeastern Conference championship in Atlanta. “I can’t tell you how proud I am of this team,” coach Nick Saban said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever been so anxious to win a game for a group of guys.”
