Saturday’s win for the Ohio State football team over Michigan in double overtime solidified the Buckeyes as a playoff contender. In Tuesday’s latest installment of the College Football Playoff poll, OSU finds itself at the No. 2 spot, awaiting to hear whether they it be playing in the Peach Bowl or the Fiesta Bowl.

Alabama remained at the top spot, and will be playing No. 15 Florida in the Southeastern Conference championship. At No. 3, Clemson moved up to replace Michigan following the Wolverines’ loss to the Buckeyes on Saturday.

Washington rounds out the playoff spots in No. 4. Michigan dropped to No. 5.

No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 7 Penn State will compete in the Big Ten Championship game, and both hope their respective performances are good enough to convince the committee to give them a spot in the playoffs.

In the top six spots, the Big Ten has three teams, so the conference will have at least one representative in this year’s playoff.
