2007: OHIO STATE USES BACKDOOR TO TITLE GAME
• In the final two weeks of last year's regular season, the Buckeyes jumped from no. 5 to a spot in the BCS Championship'without playing a game. They promptly proved their title-game worthiness by losing to LSU 38-24. The BCS worked so well in '07 that the team that finished second in the final rankings (Georgia) didn't even play in a BCS game.
