JT Barrett and Ohio State make their case with win over Wisconsin

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is

"We deserve a shot", Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told reporters after the game of his team's Playoff likelihood. The Buckeyes had recorded wins over teams now ranked sixth, ninth, and 16th (with Penn State and Wisconsin both being top-four at the time of those wins) and owned the seventh-best strength of schedule to go along with a conference title.

Alabama, on the other hand, is 11-1 and its lone loss was at Auburn, but the Crimson Tide did not win the Southeastern Conference or beat anyone in the top 15 of the most recent CFP poll.

The second choice would be that a team plays over its head and leaves people amazed and wondering where that came from. The crux of his argument: The Big Ten plays nine conference games and had the fewest matchups (three) with FCS opponents among Power Five conferences. So would Wisconsin scoring 70 against Nebraska in the 2012 Big Ten title game. "And we're conference champions". Until this season, a comparison of team's losses seemingly hasn't been a hot topic.

Odds: Ohio State opened as 6.5-point favorites over the Badgers.

North Korea: Russia accuses USA of goading Kim Jong
Previous US administrations have failed to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and a sophisticated missile program. However, Tillerson may not remain in his job long, with disagreements with Trump over North Korea being one factor.

Otherwise, the Buckeyes stayed pretty much in control and kept Barrett out of trouble.

So, will unpredictable Ohio State show up tonight in Indianapolis? Will it be the team that imploded like an aging stadium being demolished at Iowa?

And what about Wisconsin, an undefeated team with a much-questioned schedule which is nearly a touchdown underdog to a two-loss team? The Badgers (12-1) fell to 0-5 in the Big Ten championship game and lost for the first time since last year's conference title game. Or do they have a surprise, maybe good, maybe bad in store for them?

J.T. Barrett felt and played like his old self Saturday. After about 10 minutes, the game resumed to the roar of the crowd.

City, Reynolds Reach Deal In Castile Shooting
After the shooting, the Roseville police department detained Reynolds and Minnesota officials questioned her about the incident. In her statement, Reynolds stated that the settlement represented the fact that what happened on July 6, 2016 was "wrong".

If Barrett is OK, the biggest match-ups will be the battles between the offensive lines and defensive lines. The Buckeyes run defense was phenomenal, holding the Badgers to just 60 yards on the ground - their lowest total of the year.

Ohio State vs. Wisconsin news:Among them include tight end Zander Neuville (right leg), running back Bradrick Shaw (left leg), safety D'Cota Dixon (right leg) and outside linebacker Noah Burks (left leg) are all listed with that designation. The Bulldogs were able to force key turnovers to keep the momentum on their side, including two fumbles and a blocked field goal.

Ultimately, it was the Ohio State defense that gave them the edge over Wisconsin.

The Buckeyes started the season with an injured Mike Weber and relied early on true freshman rusher J.K. Dobbins. The winning team has had 34 points or more in five of the six played so far. The abandonment of the run game combined with some easy missed throws by Barrett, including a tipped-ball interception, allowed the Badgers to claw their way back into the game. Three of the four playoff spots were likely sewn up Saturday, going to Big 12 champ Oklahoma, SEC champ Georgia and ACC champ Clemson.

Trumps light national Christmas tree for first time
The nearly 100-year-old tradition dates back to the 30th president of the U.S., President Calvin Coolidge , in 1923. It was in that first year that organizers officially deemed the tree the "National Christmas Tree".
