I have a hard time seeing the committee "hosing" Ohio State in favor of Oklahoma, given the 45-24 beatdown that the Buckeyes put on the Sooners in Norman. That kind of decision would be a de facto statement that conference championships matter more than overall resume, head-to-head and strength of schedule, all of which favor Ohio State.

your sentence omitted

...who lost to Penn State later in the year.

Momentum is often one of the metrics that such committees use. A big win by the Sooners could vault them in. Don't forget the "make up" factor of excluding the Big12 last season.

It does depend on this weekend's games, though... A Colorado win will keep the Pac12 out, and get the Buckeyes in.
