When determining the champion of a Pac-12 division, the Pac-12 conference records are used to order the standings from first to last.

Overall records mean nothing.
As simple as that.
The Ideal OOC schedule for me would be a game against an FCS team, then a mediocre ACC/Big 10/Big 12/SEC/MWC/Big East team and then a Big Match up against a top 25 team. It would get fans excited and would give a solid team 2-3 wins off the bat.
So the schedule next year then basically, just in a different order?

It was arguably a tougher non-conference schedule than Alabama's (8-4 Michigan and 7-5 WKU were the headliners there), and at least comparable. The only time I can remember non-conference scheduling being the deciding factor since 2004 (when I started following CFB) was in 2004 when 5 teams (if I recall) were undefeated and Auburn was on the outside looking in as OU and USC played for the BCSNC.
