The Ohio St. Buckeyes are officially bowl eligible after taking care of business against the Indiana Hoosiers this past Saturday. Now the task for the Buckeyes will be to continue winning in a quest to improve the quality of the bowl game. After a wild week in the Big Ten several teams are bunched together which will keep the standings and bowl game slotting up in the air for some time.
Last week the Buckeyes projected as the Big Ten No. 6 team, but after Nebraska's loss to Northwestern, the Buckeyes are on the move.
The latest bowl projection at College Football News has Ohio State projecting as the Big Ten No. 4 team and facing Texas A&M in the Insight Bowl in Tuscon, Arizona on December 30th.
Ohio State has remaining games against Purdue, Penn State and Michigan which offers a great opportunity for the Bucks to move into position to land a January 2nd bowl game.
