BCS Rankings, Week 14: Michigan Ranked 16th, Michigan State 13th

In order to be eligible for an at-large berth to a BCS game, the Michigan Wolverines need to be ranked in the top 14 of the BCS standings. Right now, with a week to play, Michigan is on the outside looking in. They are ranked 16th in the Week 14 BCS standings, right behind Michigan State, Georgia and Wisconsin. The good news is Michigan should jump the loser of the Michigan State/Wisconsin game, and if LSU beats Georgia, Michigan should move up another spot. There are no guarantees, though.

Below is a look at the full BCS rankings for Week 14.

1 LSU
2 Alabama
3 Oklahoma State
4 Stanford
5 Virginia Tech
6 Houston
7 Boise State
8 Arkansas
9 Oregon
10 Oklahoma
11 Kansas State
12 South Carolina
13 Michigan State
14 Georgia
15 Wisconsin
16 Michigan
17 Baylor
18 TCU
19 Nebraska
20 Clemson
21 Penn State
22 Texas
23 West Virginia
24 Southern Miss
25 Missouri

As for Michigan State's ranking, it is really Rose Bowl or bust. If the Spartans beat Wisconsin, they automatically are the Big Ten's representative in the Rose Bowl. If they lose, however, Michigan State will likely drop out of the top 14 and contention for an at-large bid.
