The case:
 
Georgia Tech went undefeated and was given the national title.  OSU's only blemish came in a non-conference game that was fairly meaningless against Auburn and was a scoreless tie.  The Bucks completely dominated the Big 10 and the conference was at least as strong at the time as GT's southern schedule.  Ohio State deserved the national crown.
