Saquon Barkley on whether Penn State should be in the playoff: "We won the Big Ten championship, arguably the best conference in college football. We beat Ohio State. We've got a good resume.

How unlikely was Penn State's Big Ten championship? Preseason odds on the Nittany Lions winning the conference were 60-1, according to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. After Penn State lost to Michigan on Sept. 24, ESPN's Football Power Index projected the team's conference title chances as 0.09 percent; they remained below 4 percent until Michigan's loss to Iowa. And Saturday night, Penn State's win probability dipped to 3 percent after Wisconsin sacked Trace McSorley with 3:25 remaining in the second quarter and the Nittany Lions trailing 28-7.
