The reason OSU should have been in the title game over Bama was because:While the events of that day are terrible and caused a lot of devastation, emotion and loss was not a reason to put OSU in the title game........ and I say that with the utmost respect and sympathy..........and had it been the other way around, it wouldn’t have been a reason to put Bama in the title game
1. OSU won the Big XII
2. Alabama didn't even win their own DIVISION
3. OSU had 5 top 25 wins.
4. Bama had just 2 top 25 wins
5. OSU beat 7 bowl bound teams
6. Alabama beat only 3 bowl bound teams.
7. Lone loss for OSU was in OT on the road in Ames, Iowa
8. Lone loss for Alabama was AT HOME in OT
