Despite loss to OSU, Michigan still #2 in BCS...for now
The new BCS Standings have been released and Michigan is still in the coveted #2 slot just ahead of #3 USC. However, USC has two games remaining and if the Trojans win out they would almost assuredly move ahead of the Wolverines. Michigan(11-1) is now ranked #3 in the USA Today Coaches' Top 25 Poll and remain #2 in the AP Poll. However, the AP Poll is not used in determining the BCS Standings. Incidentally, USC's two remaining games are against Notre Dame and UCLA. Even if USC were to drop one of those games, Wolverine fans should not make non-refundable reservations to Glendale, AZ. Southeastern Conference teams Florida (#4) and Arkanas (#6) are still very much alive if either of them win out. The final BCS standings will be released December 3rd and then Michigan fans will know for sure the fate of their beloved team. Go Blue!
