On this week's 4 to 6 with A&B podcast, Ari and Bill debated whether OSU should claim a national championship and hang a championship banner. Specifically, if OSU goes undefeated in the winter/spring season and wins the Big Ten v. Pac-12 bowl and some pundits say that they were the best team then should OSU claim the championship.

I think that the team that wins the fall season is the champion. If Bama wins its schedule and beats Clemson, Oklahoma, and Georgia/TBD, then they have the best claim to the championship. OSU hanging an alternate championship banner seems desperate.
