After, 1-loss Ohio State topped undefeated Penn State last week, in a would-be pre-playoff qualifier, both team’s loss this week.
Penn State loss a close one to Michigan State, 27-24, effectively knocking the Nittney Lions out of the race. You would think that would have been the biggest surprise of the evening, right? No. Ohio State would line up against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The Hawkeyes came into the game un-ranked, but very strong. Iowa has always been an under-the-radar type of program. The Hawkeyes were 1 tip pass away from defeating, at the time undefeated, Penn State. But that’s weeks ago, and so we move-on into the season.
Iowa would come into the game un-ranked against a 1-loss Ohio State team, and the Hawk eyes absolutely crushed them.
At the end of the first quarter, both Ohio State and Iowa were tied at 10, and then the flood gates were starting to open. Iowa would go on to score 38 unanswered points. Ohio State would score again, but Iowa too would score again right before the game ended.
Final Score Iowa 55 Ohio State 24.

And with that the Big 10 effective immediately are out of the Playoff picture. Wait, Wisconsin is still undefeated! There is hope.
