The concern for the Big Ten is that Michigan hasn't moved up much in the human polls despite beating Ohio State to finish 10-2. The Wolverines must finish in the top 14 of the final BCS standings to be eligible for at-large selection. The computers haven't been kind to Big Ten teams all season, so the Wolverines will need a bump somewhere. Michigan should benefit from not playing this week as several teams could fall out of the top 14, including the Big Ten title game loser. The Wolverines also should root for LSU to beat Georgia in the SEC title game, preventing the possibility of three SEC teams in BCS bowls (LSU, Georgia, Alabama).

The BCS standings are coming out in a bit, and we'll have reaction for you.
