I can't see that happening if Wisconsin wins. Michigan has lost 2 of their last 3 games, and Iowa is not a "quality" loss. Michigan only beat Wisconsin like 14-7, a Big Ten Championship for Wisconsin would keep them over Michigan. Penn State, who got blew out by Michigan...maybe not.
Big 10 is messed up wrote:
Are all in. If Clemson or Washington lose then 2 loss Michigan will be the first team in. Michigan has wins over Penn State and Wisconsin. Also a loss by Washington would mean they lost to Colorado and guess what? Michigan beat them as well.
I don't think you know what "lark" means.

Penn State won that Ohio State game on a lark, really, wasn't it a blocked field goal run back? I mean it's still a win, of course. Wisconsin went to OT with Ohio State, after leading most of the game. So neither Penn State or Wisconsin was dominant or dominated in their win (PSU) or loss vs Ohio State (Wisconsin).
I really think Penn State's strength of schedule hurts them a bit.
This is right. These teams will draw bigger audiences and sell more tickets than the other contenders. Nothing else matters in the final selection from the one loss and undefeated teams. The committee is praying for Washington to lose so they can put PSU or Michigan in.
2) Ohio State
These two teams are guaranteed a spot in the playoff no matter what happens.
Colorado does have the one thing that could possibly threaten the Alabama defense: A QB who is a legitimate threat to run and throw (See: Chad Kelly lighting them up each of the last two years). The problem is Sefo is already banged up and a couple of hits from that defense and he could be toast.
I hope somehow Colorado makes it in
