Penn State's claim for a playoff bid last year is being echoed by a surprising source.

Urban Meyer, whose Ohio State Buckeyes did receive one of the playoff bids over the Nittany Lions, feels Penn State deserved to be there.

Penn State, Ohio State, and Michigan finished in a three-way tie for first in the Big Ten East, but the Nittany Lions advanced to the title game on a tiebreaker and then beat Wisconsin.

Penn State also beat the Buckeyes, though Meyer and company only had one loss on the year while the Nittany Lions had two.

Meyer would ultimately clarify his comments, saying he didn't believe Penn State should have gotten in over his squad.
