After Ohio State lost to Purdue, Notre Dame now has the best Strength of Record in the country. This is purely about accomplishment -- how difficult was it to achieve the record you have? Harder to go 7-1 with LSU's schedule than undefeated with Clemson or Alabama's so far.

A loss to Purdue didn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but Ohio State's chance to reach the playoff dropped 47 percentage points. Meanwhile no one improved its playoff outlook yesterday more than Michigan, who is now the fourth-most likely team to reach the CFP.

Ohio State's loss to Purdue doesn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but it puts pressure on them to finish as a one-loss Big Ten champ, which means beating Michigan on Nov. 24. According to ESPN's Playoff Predictor, Ohio State's chances of making the playoff dropped to 42 percent. The loss also opened the door for Oklahoma to get back into the debate if the Sooners can finish as a one-loss champ.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Can't help but think of last year when Ohio State could not make the playoff because of a 31-point loss to Iowa. Losing by 29 at Purdue seems just as tough to overcome, although, as tonight showed, the Buckeyes need to worry about finding a running game more than they do making the playoff.

Purdue has clearly been the better team tonight, but Ohio State's season-long problems -- giving up too many big plays, no consistent run game, too many penalties red zone inefficiency -- have shown up all game. The Buckeyes are getting exactly what they deserve, and probably what they've deserved for several weeks.

For those of us who have paid little attention to Purdue before tonight, yes, the Boilermakers started 0-3. But those three losses came by a total of eight points. Purdue won last three (BC/Neb/Ill) by 70 points. Young defense has made huge strides over first half of season.
