Last Tuesday, Penn State was just outside the four-team playoff bubble, needing some help from teams facing Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Clemson. Some of that Big Ten help came, but scenarios that see Penn State ending up even in Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game seem all but unattainable.
