Sports media will put anyone in before their made to put in a Big 10 team.

About the only way it "may" happen is if Bama, Oregon and Florida State all lose.
The season likely won't come to a close with more than 2 undefeated teams, so if they're one of them, I say yes.

The media bias and smear campaign against the Big 10 will keep the Buckeyes out of the big game if there is more than two undefeated teams. Oregon has a very weak schedule, but they are media darlings along with the myth about the SEC being a superior conference. I agree that 'Bama is probably number one, but after that it is a toss-up. Oregon shouldn't be considered because of the schedule they play. The PAC is very weak this year.

I don't think the SEC as a whole is head and shoulders above every other conference like the media claims it to be, but the conference has claimed 7 straight national titles so I'm not sure I'd call their dominance a myth.
Either way, every year at this time the conversation is about who is going to get left out if there are more than 2 undefeateds. Only one team, Auburn (2004 maybe?) was left out of the title game without a loss on their record. So it can happen, but the chances are, if Ohio State wins out they'll make it in because other teams will lose.
I do agree that the Big 10 isn't nearly as bad as the media makes it out to be either. It's not as strong as it has been in the past, but they talk about it compared to the SEC like it's pro vs. high school. The separation isn't THAT huge.
If you watch them they are not that good. They call the QB mr broken play.
If they do get the call the defense needs to step up.
they looked like champs!
