Urban Meyer wants both Ohio State Football and Michigan in CFP

Urban Meyer doesn’t look at college football playoff resumes. He doesn’t look at work.

The former Ohio State football coach said on FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff that he believes the Buckeyes and Michigan are two of the top four teams in college football.

“If you look at the video, the Buckeyes and the Wolverines are two of the top four teams in America,” Meyer said.

According to Meyer, Ohio State has the “best offensive ability in the world” at averaging 46.8 points and 501.9 yards per game — one of six teams who, along with Tennessee, Oregon, Georgia, North Carolina and UCLA, average more than 500 Achieving yards per game.

Meyer also said Michigan has an “offensive and defensive line that has dominated all year,” allowing 12 sacks in 10 games with one running game averaging 251.4 yards per game and 5.6 yards per carry while 31 sacks are recorded in defense.

After former Notre Dame quarterback and Columbus native Brady Quinn criticized Meyer for using “videotapes” — and asked the former Ohio State coach if he used VHS tapes — he mentioned how much the former football coach felt of the state of Ohio had changed in his opinion.

Urban Meyer dominated with Oho State against Michigan

Meyer was perfect against the Wolverines during his time with the Buckeyes, recording seven wins in seven tries against Brady Hoke and Jim Harbaugh and beating Michigan 237-189, including three wins at Michigan Stadium.

In Ohio State history, Meyer has the fourth most wins behind Woody Hayes (1951-78, 205 wins), John Cooper (1988-2000, 111 wins) and Jim Tressel (2001-10, 94 wins) left the program in the 2018 and led the Buckeyes to a Rose Bowl win over Washington.
