Yea, those were my thoughts, but they have to win out and they have to maintain #4. We got jumped after a clutch win at LSU (where the tigers are like 46-4 at night under Les Miles) by TCU when they beat Baylor. If Bama and MSU both make it in I think we will be matched in the first round.
I don't think the Big 10 deserves any credit. Even with a conference championship, I like OSU as the first team out. MSU has a much more impressive resume.
