Surprise, Surprise, Big 12 Changes Tiebreaker

New, 19 comments

Now a 3-way tiebreaker will be able to take head-to-head results into account.

The old system simply had the highest-ranked team in the BCS poll being given the spot in the championship game. Under the new system, if two of the teams tied are within one spot of each other in the rankings, then the head-to-head results could be used.

Guess who would have gone to the Big 12 Championship game under this scenario in 2008?
