Lee Corso: Big Ten Won't Make The Playoff If This Happens

ESPN's College GameDay kicked off from Columbus on Saturday morning ahead of the highly-anticipated matchup between Ohio State and Michigan. The Buckeyes own a six-game winning streak against the Wolverines.

During Saturday's broadcast, the GameDay crew broke down the potential College Football Playoff races. Lee Corso revealed a very interesting idea - suggesting the Big Ten could get left out of the playoff.

Corso posited that a loss to Georgia in the SEC title game wouldn't spell the end for Alabama. In fact, Corso thinks both Alabama and Georgia would get in to the playoff over the Big Ten champ - even if the current No. 4 Michigan Wolverines win out.

If that happens, it would be the third year in a row the Big Ten champ failed to make the playoff after Penn State in 2016 and Ohio State in 2017.

It's difficult to imagine the playoff committee not putting Michigan into the playoff if the Wolverines win out.
