After an unforgettable rivalry day, Ohio State finds itself No. 2 in the latest human polls and on the brink of the national championship game.
It sets up another intriguing Championship Saturday this week. The Big Ten, SEC and ACC championship games will decide who plays in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 6.
Auburn AD Jay Jacobs is already lobbying for the SEC champion to appear in Pasadena. but the biggest problem both Tigers are facing is that loss in the record column.
“An SEC team can’t get left out of the (championship game) with one loss,” Jacobs told Dan Wolken of USA Today. “We just beat the No. 1 team in the nation, and a team ahead of us struggled [yesterday]. And a one-loss SEC team that wins in Atlanta — if it’s us or Missouri — you can’t get left out of the BCS after you beat the No. 1 team. We have a better argument because we beat the No. 1 team.”
Jacobs also said it would be a “disservice to the nation” if a one-loss Auburn team was left out of the title game.
The BCS standings will be released tonight at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
