Conspiracy Theorists Believe That Wisconsin Threw The Big Ten Championship To Help OSU Make The CFP

While it can be argued that TCU or Baylor should have received the four seed in this year's College Football Playoff, it is impossible to deny that Ohio State's dominant 59-0 Big Ten Championship win over Wisconsin was incredibly impressive. Impossible, unless you subscribe to the theory that the Badgers threw the game to help its conference-mate vault into the last spot. While it seems ridiculous that a bunch of proud, unpaid college athletes would do something like that, there are plenty on Twitter who buy in to the conspiracy.
