(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Ohio State is playing for a Big Ten championship tonight and, so far, it’s going well for the Buckeyes. OSU is leading Northwestern, 24-7, at halftime of the league’s championship game.Urban Meyer’s team is also playing for a spot in the College Football Playoff, though, and the Buckeyes need style points.Ohio State opted to pass on those at the end of the first half.The Buckeyes had the ball with about 40 seconds left in the first half and one timeout. Meyer, though, opted to run one play – which went for a couple of yards – and then went into halftime.Some feel like Meyer should’ve been more aggressive with the College Football Playoff selection committee watching.“If you are Urban Meyer, you have to play for at least a field goal here. 44 seconds. 1 timeout. Go for it now,” Kevin McGuire tweeted.If you are Urban Meyer, you have to play for at least a field goal here. 44 seconds. 1 timeout.
