The ongoing discussion around the Big Ten title requirements saw another step on Saturday. Brett McMurphy with Stadium tweeted out that conference athletic directors would “likely change” the six-game minimum requirement.
This is not earth-shattering news, but it does mean we are getting closer to Ohio State locking up a spot in Big Ten championship. And as McMurphy points out, a win in that game would “all but guarantee” the Buckeyes a spot in the College Football Playoff.
B1G ADs will likely change B1G title game requirements to allow 5-0 Ohio State in title game if it can’t play 6th league game, sources told @Stadium. But it won’t be an easy decision, source said. A win in B1G title game would all but guarantee Buckeyes a spot in @CFBPlayoff

Things are only going to get more interesting from here.
What happens if Florida beats Alabama and Clemson gets a win in the Notre Dame rematch? Who gets left out? Like every season, the Playoff discussion is going to include controversy, hot takes and at least one frustrated team.
