^not really, that actually just makes them look worse. if they were to run the Big Ten and USC went undefeated, maybe, but USC just lost to an unranked team in the Pac 10, an incredibly weak conference.
But if we see a year like last year where a top 3 team drops weekly, then yeah, maybe.
ohio state beat them vicariously now because another osu got the job done. fuck mark sanchez and pete carrol
