They have a tough schedule for sure, but I think the point is that a

conference championship game would require that they play a very good team each year late in the year no matter what, ie. the division winner of a P5 conference. As it turns out, they did that with 2 teams this year, though I would imagine that's not usually the case.

Also worth mentioning that if they were in a conference, they reduce the chance that they play a division winner outside of the championship game, as winning would count against the other team's record. In other words, Northwestern would not have been in the B10 champ game if the ND loss counted against their conference record.
