With three games to play, Ohio State appears to be on the outside of the College Football Playoff looking in. But should the Buckeyes be able to win their three remaining games – against unranked Michigan State and Maryland, and No. 4 Michigan – well, there’s a chance. The Buckeyes are sitting at No. 10 in the latest CFP rankings, and their single loss to Purdue this season certainly hurt their credibility. But a win against Michigan in the final game of the season could change everything.

Speaking of Michigan, that final game, which will be played at OSU, is commanding one of the highest average asking prices for a regular-season college football game since TicketIQ.com began tracking data in 2011. At $932, the average asking price on the secondary market is higher than the SEC Championship, which is trending at $820. That game features No. 1 Alabama against No. 5 Georgia.

Ohio State plays their next two games on the road before returning home for the premiere game of the season. Michigan and Ohio State have played 114 times entering this matchup and Ohio State is on a six-game series win streak.

Here’s a look at Ohio State’s final three games:

Ohio State at Michigan State

  • When: November 10 at 12 p.m.
  • Average asking price: $94
  • Get-in price: $45

This weekend’s Big Ten East Division matchup could have major ramifications. With Michigan unbeaten in the East, every game is a must-win for Ohio State, which has a better road record (16-5) than home record (15-9) against Michigan State. MSU has been a spoiler for Ohio State in the past and though the Spartans have had a fairly uneven season, expect more of the same. Of the three games remaining this season, the $94 average asking price for this game is the cheapest on the secondary market, according to TicketIQ.com.

Ohio State at Maryland

  • When: November 17 at 1 p.m.
  • Average asking price: $111
  • Get-in price: $65

Just looking at records and strength of competition, this game appears to be the easiest of the three OSU has remaining, and the Buckeyes probably feel pretty confident having won the last four consecutive in this series. But as a Big Ten East rival, this is, again, a must-win game for Ohio State, if it wants to have a shot at getting into the Big Ten conference championship. The $111  average asking price is the second most expensive on the secondary market of the three remaining games.

Michigan at Ohio State

  • When: November 24 at 12 p.m.
  • Average asking price: $932
  • Get-in price: $269

Should Ohio State get to this game with no more losses, it could determine which team will get a shot at the conference championship, which pits the leader in the East vs. the leader in the West. Should both teams win the two games before this one, they will each enter with a single loss – Michigan fell to Notre Dame at the start of the season and Ohio State lost to Purdue in October. No wonder the average asking price on the secondary market is sky high, according to TicketIQ.com. This rivalry dates back to 1897 and Michigan holds an all-time series lead of 58-49-6.

There’s no mystery about what Ohio State has to do get into the College Football Playoff mix. The Buckeyes, who missed a shot at the CFP last season, played the first three games of the season without suspended head coach Urban Meyer. They last won a national championship in 2014, defeating Oregon, 42-20, in the second season of the College Football Playoff.
