Oklahoma State's generosity has left a pretty clear path to the BCS for Michigan. As unthinkable as it was, I think we're down to hoping for just three teams (not counting Michigan) to win out for the Wolverines to secure their first bid since 2006. Those teams are:
- Notre Dame
The SEC will get one at-large bid. If Oklahoma wins out, they win the Big 12 and give OK State two losses in their last three. If Notre Dame wins out, Stanford finishes with two losses. If Oregon wins out, they get the PAC-12 bid instead of an at-large bid. The Big East is lucky to get one bid, I doubt any bowl wants to invite an apathetic ACC runner-up, and eithe Houston or Boise will get a bid. That, plus Wisconsin or MSU guaranteed to lose one more would leave Michigan in the driver's seat. Thoughts?
