It’s possible that LSU and Ohio State are on a collision course to meet in the College Football Playoff. In the event that does happen, ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum believes the edge would go to the Buckeyes.
LSU leapfrogged Ohio State in the latest CFP rankings. That’s what happens when you beat Alabama on the road in the biggest game of the year.
As for Ohio State, the Big Ten powerhouse continues to steamroll past opponents – even without superstar defender Chase Young on the field.
Finebaum has taken notice of the Buckeyes’ dominance, and that’s exactly why he thinks they’d beat the Tigers in a potential matchup.
He was on ESPN’s First Take to talk about the top teams in the country. During his segment, Finebaum discussed why LSU might not be as unbeatable as people think.
“If you look at LSU, as great as that win was the other day, they’ve got a couple of narrow wins. They beat Auburn by three at home, they had a heavyweight fight against Florida, and they had a narrow win against Texas – which isn’t a great team. Ohio State has shredded teams.”

It would be quite the story if LSU meets Ohio State in the Playoff. Joe Burrow would get the chance to compete against his former team for the chance to win the national title.
Before fans can start preparing for that matchup, the Buckeyes and Tigers have to finish the regular season unscathed.
LSU is on the road against Ole Miss this Saturday, meanwhile Ohio State is visiting Rutgers.
