And us Ohio State fans, now we get to play in the national championship!

I don't think so Blake. It will be the Missouri-Auburn winner vs. Florida State. I think Ohio State only gets in if Duke beats FSU in the ACC title game.

I don't know, Ohio is currently ranked number 2 in the BCS standings so unless we lose to Michigan state or Auburn blows Mississippi out, I think Ohio gets the spot. It would be a shame if a team won 25 straight and never got a chance to play in the National Championship.

Yeah but if they were in the SEC that 25-0 record would be more like 18-7.
