1. Teams shall be seeded No. 1 through No. 14 in the tournament bracket based on the final regular-season Conference standings.

2. A team's seed shall correspond to its regular-season finish (i.e., the champion shall be the No. 1 seed, the runnerup the No. 2 seed, etc.).

3. Teams that finished Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the regular-season shall receive a "bye" through the first two rounds.

4. In case of a tie for any place finish in the regular-season standings, the following tie-breaking procedure shall be followed in order to seed teams in the tournament bracket:

A. Two-team tie:
1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular-season.

2. Each team's record vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings (or in the case of a tie for the championship, the next highest position in the regular-season standings), continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage.
     a. When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team's record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedures), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams.
     b. When comparing records against a single team or a group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0).

3. Won-loss percentage of all Division I opponents.

4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee.

B. Multiple-team tie:
1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular-season.
    a. When comparing records against the tied teams, teams will be seeded based on winning percentage among the group, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0). If all teams among the group are separated based on winning percentage, all ties are broken. If winning percentage among the group for any tied teams is equal, move to step b with those specific tied teams only (e.g. if there is a four-team tie, one team is 4-0, another is 3-1 and the last two are 2-2 among the group, the two teams that are 2-2 move to step b and the teams that are 4-0 and 3-1 assume the next two available highest seeds).
           Note: Teams can be separated from the top, middle or bottom.
   b. If a team or teams are separated from the group based on step a, seeding for remaining teams among the group is not determined by head-to-head record vs. the remaining teams, but rather by taking all remaining teams to next tie breaker.

2. If the remaining teams are still tied, then each tied team's record shall be compared to the team occupying the highest position in the final regular-season standings, continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage.
   a. When arriving at another pair of tied teams while comparing records, use each team's record against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to their own tie-breaking procedures), rather than the performance against the individual tied teams.
   b. When comparing records against a single team or group of teams, the higher winning percentage shall prevail, even if the number of games played against the team or group are unequal (i.e., 2-0 is better than 3-1, but 2-0 is not better than 1-0).

3. Won-loss percentage of Division I opponents.

4. Coin toss conducted by Commissioner or designee.

We blew them away playing in a cold downpour. Put these teams in a dome and it’s 59-0 all over again. We shouldn’t sit Fields the whole game, but put Chugs in at halftime and let him run with the starters for the third quarter.

Until the very last play, that 2016 game was the second worst game I watched as a student behind the 2015 MSU game. The offense was absolutely horrible and everybody in the stands was anxious and frustrated for three and a half hours at their performance. Thank God for Curtis Samuel!

I feel sad for people like you who value the football team more than the education, research, and community impact of the university. 

Comment 21 Nov 2019

Under Drake, Ohio State broke its records for graduation and retention rates, academic talent and diversity among incoming classes, research expenditures and annual fundraising. He has made “access and affordability” a focus of his presidency, implementing the first comprehensive tuition freeze for in-state studentsin 40 years. And since 2015, the university has budgeted more than $150 million in additional need-based aid to students, exceeding Drake’s goal of $100 million by 2020.

I’m so tired of the “Drake sucks” narrative. The university has been incredibly successful under his watch.

To me, a rivalry indicates the game is circled no matter how good the other team is. If Penn State was a sub .500 team, nobody would care about this game. I feel that fans often confuse rivals and competitive teams. 

Comment 11 Nov 2019

Minnesota should be ranked highly tomorrow, but I'm still not buying them. I believe they will lose to Iowa and Wisconsin and finish up 10-2 and out of the B1G Championship.

Looking to make the trip up for The Game. We will need 3 tickets and would like to be in a section with a decent amount of OSU fans, but it's not a requirement.
