Turnovers plagued the Ohio State offense, with senior quarterback J.T. Barrett throwing two interceptions. 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. Losing once is better than losing twice.

"You lose the way you lost, it sends a message to the committee that they couldn't forgive", ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit said Sunday. A similar situation happened previous year, when Penn State won the Big Ten Championship Game but had two losses.
With the win, the College Football Playoff is now thrown in a bit of a frenzy, as the Playoff committee will have to choose between No. 5 Alabama (11-1) and No. 8 Ohio State (11-2) for the final spot in the top four after Clemson, Oklahoma, and Georgia won earlier on Saturday.
