But the BCS rankings are out, and Ohio State is fifth (FIFTH!) in the computer poll. The fact that Penn State is seventh is a bit odd, but to be ninth overall at this point in the season is not bad. The Nation will obviously be pulling for Penn State this weekend just so Ohio State can’t screw things up again; and I can see their point. Though, part of me wants to believe that this team is different than that of the past two years…But I digress.
Just to point out some more wrinkles in the current rankings, Texas is obviously atop the list. However, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are still remaining on their schedule and both happen to be in the top 10.
It truly looks like if Ohio State can beat PSU this week, there are only a couple more chips that need to fall for the Buckeyes to move further up the rankings. Of course, whether or not they deserve to is a total different argument.
