Ohio State wasn't "really" 14-0
You are right,Randy. I started thinking about this and wondered how can OSU be 14-0 without a conference championship game?
Teams played 4 non-conference games in 2002.
Bama played Oklahoma, Southern Miss, North Texas, and MTSU. Hawaii was added as a 5th game...
Thanks Elephantitis, I went back to the 2002 schedule and noticed that OSU played 5 regular season non-conference games in 2002. They also had some very close games during the last 6 weeks of the season (all but one game decided by 7 points or less).
Also found out that OSU is only the second team in Division 1/FBS to win 14 games in a season. BYU actually went 14-1 in 1996.
Hope the Tide can chalk up another victory next weekend.
