Has the Big Ten announced division tiebreak procedure given the possibility that not all games will be played?
Should division winners be based on:
- Winning percentage?
- Total wins?
- Head-to-head if one team wins based off total wins and the other by winning percentage? Ex. OSU (6-0) beats PSU (7-1) but had 2 games canceled.
In one scenario you could have a 6-0 team make the title game over a 7-1 team (winning percentage).
In the other, you could have a 7-1 team make it over a 6-0 team (total wins).
You could break this “tie” by head-to-head.
Winning percentage is how the MLB is deciding division winners, but playing 50-60 games is much different than 8 or less. Has the tiebreak procedure been determined by the Big Ten or any other conferences if total games played is not equal?
