Head to head winner goes |

2. |
Still a tie, then team with better overall winning % goes |

3. |
Still a tie, then whoever went to the Rose Bowl last is eliminated |

3 Teams Tied |

1. |
If one team has beat the other two, then that winning team goes |

2. |
If two of the teams have beat the third, then the third losing team is eliminated and the remaining two teams revert to the two-team tie-break |

3. |
If (2) does not apply, then team with best overall winning % goes |

4. |
If two are tied because of overall winning %, then the third team is eliminated and the remaining two teams go to the two-team tie-break |

5. |
If all three teams have the same overall winning %, then whoever went to
the Rose Bowl last (e.g. Michigan in 1997) is eliminated and the remaining
two teams (e.g. Wisconsin and Ohio State) revert to the two-team tie break,
which basically brings you back to eliminating whoever went second to last
(e.g. Ohio State, leaving Wisconsin as the bullshit Rose Bowl
representative in 1997). This is an example of basically rewarding the
program with the weaker football program, or also referred to as the
"Northwestern/Wisconsin pity rule". |
