Michigan vs. Ohio St canceled, leaving Buckeyes ineligible for Big Ten Title

247Sports: For the first time since 1917, Ohio State and Michigan won’t meet on the football field this year. The game between the two bitter rivals has been canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Wolverines locker room, according to a team statement.



 


 

This cancellation has some major implications for the Big Ten. The Buckeyes will only finish the regular season with five games played, which is one shy of what the Big Ten requires for teams to be eligible for the conference championship. Unless the league changes its policy, Ohio State won’t be going to Indianapolis, and that will hurt its shot at a College Football Playoff spot.
