For many observers, Ohio State’s dominant victory over Wisconsin was a big part of why the Buckeyes got the final sport in the College Football Playoff.

The Buckeyes’ 59-0 victory left the Big 12’s TCU and Baylor out of the bracket, and a conspiracy theory was born. Badgers fans simply couldn’t believer their team played so terribly.

Personally, I think Ohio State’s win was due to the Big Ten being a terrible conference. For instance, the Big 12’s worst team, Iowa State, won at bowl-bound Iowa.
