2012 BCS standings: Michigan stays at No. 19 despite loss

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan remained at No. 19 in the BCS standings despite losing to the Ohio State Buckeyes Saturday. Notre Dame stays at No. 1.

The Michigan Wolverines remained at No. 19 in the latest BCS standings despite losing to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday.

Michigan fell to Ohio State, 26-21, but stayed put in the standings. They are joined in the Top 25 by fellow Big Ten contenders No. 12 Nebraska and No. 22 Northwestern, which reenters the standings after finishing their regular season 9-3.

Notre Dame stays at the top spot and likely punches their ticket to the BCS National Championship game after defeating USC on the road Saturday. Alabama and Georgia come in at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. They will meet in the SEC Championship game. Florida and Oregon round out the top five.

No. 22 Northern Illinois and No. 17 Kent State represent possible BCS busters. The two teams will meet in the MAC Championship, with the winner potentially moving up in the standings. If the winner finishes above the Big East champion in the final BCS standings, a BCS bowl berth is guaranteed.

Utah State and San Jose State also join the BCS ranks this week.
