Ohio State turned the ball over four times in the loss to the Hawkeyes.

The Buckeyes defeated the University of Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship 27-21.

The Ohio State University did not make the College Football Playoff.

It'll be Alabama-Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on January 1 for a spot in the national championship game.

I thought Ohio State would be picked because this would have been the most expedient result for the committee.

Alabama is the only team to appear in all four years of the playoffs.

Clemson will be making its second appearance in the Sugar Bowl. Oklahoma makes the playoff for the second time, its first appearance since 2015.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett threw touchdown passes and two interceptions in the win against the Badgers. They also started the season 11-0 and fell a game short of the SEC Championship game.

The Sooners knocked off previous No. 11-TCU (10-3), 41-17, earlier Saturday, in Dallas, while the Bulldogs rallied from an early deficit to take revenge on previous-No. Before the Crimson Tide's road loss at Auburn, they had been ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in every edition of this year's playoff rankings. After Saturday's conference championship games, the question was whether the committee would value better wins and a conference title (Ohio State) or fewer losses and perhaps a more convincing eye test (Alabama).

Perhaps the most newsworthy item is that the Big Ten and Pac-12 were shutout of the College Football Playoff.

The College Football Playoff committee sent the Crimson Tide to a fourth straight semifinal even after sitting out the SEC title game.
