With an 18 team Big Ten and a nine game schedule what are the odds that three teams could finish the conference schedule 9-0. If the flexible annual oppenents plan stays with the move from 16 to 18 teams I am not even sure how to calculate it, but it would seem mathamatically possible. That would make the conference championship game less important.
