What could have caused this gash in my oil pan?

I don't have a 'ton' of knowledge.

My girlfriend was driving my 84 CJ7 to the coast for the day about about 60 miles into the 70 mile trip she said the jeep started to shake really bad. She pulled over and when she got out she said it was dumping oil onto the street.

Could it be from a broken rod?

Your best course of action is to drop the pan and look.
I'd say yes, a rod decided it did not want to play nice anymore. Either that or some really big piece of something else decide to go dancing in the pan.
If it is the rod, 9 times out of 10 the engine lost oil pressure long enough to destroy the rod's ability to turn on the crank.

Yeah that looks more like a violent escape than a forced entry.
