Bad news first: Our road to the Rose Bowl just got more complicated.
Good news: We’re in first place! All alone, for the time being.
With Iowa’s upset of Penn State, a trip to Pasadena now requires both of the following:
- An MSU upset of Penn State in Happy Valley two weeks from now.
- An Ohio State loss either on the road to Illinois next week or at home to Michigan in two weeks.
So start preparing yourself for the possiblity of rooting for our friends in Ann Arbor to pull off the upset in Columbus on the 22nd.
More realistically, Tampa now appears to be a more likely desination than Orlando. Which sounds A-OK to me.
