Despite having three games cancelled this season, Ohio State University could remain eligible for a Big Ten conference championship game.
A “change in policy” in regards to how many games a team is played during this season is going to be changed, according to reports.

From WEWS News 5 Cleveland:
Forde reports that Indiana would have to face Northwestern if the Buckeyes were deemed ineligible to play in the conference title game.
