The Big Ten Conference voted Wednesday to eliminate the minimum-game requirement for participation in the 2020 Big Ten Football Championship game.

Big Ten said in a statement Wednesday that the decision was made based on an analysis that determined that Ohio State would have advanced to the championship based on its undefeated record and victory over Indiana, regardless of a win or loss against Michigan.

Following this decision, Ohio State will represent the East Division in the championship, against Northwestern.

Big Ten Administrators Council made the decision with the Council of Presidents and Chancellors and the conference office.
