PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — With two weeks left in the regular season, the Big Ten has positioned itself to get a third straight berth in the College Football Playoff, and possibly two if an avalanche of things go the right way. No. 5 Ohio State, No. 7 Michigan State and No. 8 Michigan all have 9-1 records and are in position to get the league a third straight spot in the playoff. There’s also a chance the Big Ten can get shut out, as it did in 2017 and ’18. That happens if the West winner _ No. 19 Wisconsin leads _ captures the conference title game.
