HOW THEY FINISHED
Ohio State and LSU were 1-2, respectively, in the Associated Press and the Coaches’ polls on Sunday. The Buckeyes were third in the BCS last week, while LSU was seventh. The latest poll had Ohio State with a BCS average of .9588, just ahead of the Tigers (.9394), while Virginia Tech was a distant third (.8703).
