New No. 1 in simulated BCS rankings, 4 B1G teams land in Top 16 spots
Curious to know how college football teams would rank if the old BCS formula was still in place? So are we.
Fortunately, BCSKnowHow.com is still using the formula to run a simulation of what the BCS rankings would look like now that we’re entering the final month of the season. And with November on the horizon, there’s a brand new No. 1 in the rankings.
After a 38-31 victory over Wisconsin on Saturday, Ohio State is sitting at No. 1 using the BCS method. It trumps LSU, who was in the top seat a week ago. The Buckeyes were No. 2 in last week’s poll.
Ohio State is currently ranked No. 4 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 3 in the Associated Press Poll. Four other B1G teams were also ranked in the top 16 spots: Penn State (No. 5), Minnesota (No. 13) and Michigan (No. 15).
Here are the full rankings, as shared by BCSKnowHow.com:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
