BCS Rankings Week 13: Michigan Becomes Target For Ohio State

The Ohio State Buckeyes are not in this week's BCS rankings after two straight losses, but they can still have a major effect going into their final game of the season. Their archrival, the Michigan Wolverines, have reached the doorstep of an at-large bid to a BCS bowl, likely the Sugar Bowl, by coming in 15th in this week's BCS Rankings:

 

1 LSU

 

2 Alabama

 

3 Arkansas

 

4 Oklahoma State

 

5 Virginia Tech

 

6 Stanford

 

7 Boise State

 

8 Houston

 

9 Oklahoma 

 

10 Oregon

 

11 Kansas State

 

12 South Carolina

 

13 Geogia

 

14 Michigan State

 

15 Michigan

 

16 Wisconsin

 

17 Clemson

 

18 Baylor

 

19 Penn State

 

20 TCU

 

21 Nebraska

 

22 Notre Dame

 

23 Georgia Tech

 

24 Auburn

 

25 Texas

 

Michigan needs to finish in the top 14 of the final BCS standings in two weeks in order to be eligible for selection to a BCS bowl. The Wolverines host the Buckeyes on Saturday, and they have lost seven straight games to Ohio State, making a possible victory over Ohio State doubly sweet because it would make for a bigger bowl payday.
