BCS Rankings, Week 15: Final Standings Have Michigan 13th

The final BCS rankings of the 2011 college football season are out. At the top of the standings are LSU and Alabama, meaning those two teams will meet in the 2012 BCS National Championship in a rematch of what was dubbed as the "Game of the Century" earlier in the season.

The top of the standings isn't what Michigan fans cared about most, though. Instead it was if the Wolverines made the top 14 of the standings or not. It turns out they did -- Michigan is 13th in the final BCS standings -- which means the Wolverines are eligible for an at-large bid and in turn are headed to the Sugar Bowl to take on Virginia Tech.

Michigan State, which lost to Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, finished 17th in the Week 15 BCS standings, which can be seen in full below.
