A recently changed Big Ten tiebreaker could come into play in the East Division race, though it likely would affect only the timeline of naming a champion.?There was some brief consternation last season, when it appeared possible that Ohio State, Michigan State?and Michigan?could finish in a three-way tie for first place in the East with one loss and no head-to-head tiebreakers available.In that scenario, the division champion would have been decided by the fifth tiebreaker -- the highest-rated team in the College Football Playoff rankings. Theres just one problem for this season: The final regular-season CFP rankings dont come out until Nov. 29, meaning the teams wouldnt know who is heading to Indianapolis until four days before the conference title game.The Big Ten recognized this problem, and according to a spokesman, the leagues administrators council changed the procedures during its regularly scheduled meeting last month.?Now, the fifth tiebreaker will be best overall winning percentage.The CFP ranking was removed as one of the tiebreakers due to the timing of when the rankings are released and the potential competitive and logistical impact the timing could have on the Big Ten championship game, league spokesman Adam Augustine told ESPN in an email Sunday night.The ACC went through a similar rule change, eliminating the playoff rankings as one of its tiebreakers and instead turning to rankings from a private analytics firm.The Big Tens new rule will eliminate a potential timing headache but is unlikely to change who would make?it to the title game in the event of a three-way East Division tie between Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State this season. The Nittany Lions 24-21 upset of the Buckeyes on Saturday night left both teams at 3-1 in the conference. Penn States only loss is to Michigan, which is 4-0 in league play. If Penn State wins out, Michigan loses only to Ohio State, and the Buckeyes win out, all three teams would finish 8-1 with their losses among themselves.Therefore, the Big Tens first four tiebreakers wouldnt apply.They are:1. Records vs. one another (all three would be 1-1)2. Intradivision records3. Records vs. next-highest-placed teams in the division, in order of finish (fourth place through seventh)4. Records vs. all common conference opponentsSo a three-way tie then would go to overall winning percentage, which would eliminate Penn State because it lost to Pittsburgh and would have two overall losses, compared to one for Ohio State and Michigan. It then would come down to the head-to-head record between the Buckeyes and Wolverines, which would send Ohio State to Indianapolis.Thats not a different outcome, however, than what using the CFP rankings likely would create.Penn State likely would be ranked well below Ohio State and Michigan. And if Ohio State beat Michigan in the final game of the regular season, that most likely would convince the committee to rank the Buckeyes ahead of the Wolverines in the ensuing CFP poll.What would have happened if Penn State hadnt lost to Pitt? Or what if?a scenario arises in the future in which there is a similar three-way tie but each team has the same overall winning percentage?Under the new rules, the sixth tiebreaker is: The representative will be chosen by random draw.Thats right. A division champ and potential playoff contender could be decided by the league drawing names out of a hat.? Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.
