BCS Ratings: “In ESPN’s own ongoing, scientific polling of the U.S. population’s favorite college football teams, only two BCS teams — top-ranked Ohio State and 10th-ranked Wisconsin — are among America’s 10 favorite teams. Oregon, in the title game, is No. 17. Which sure beats its opponent Auburn, which ranks 38th. Orange Bowl-bound Connecticut, unranked in BCS standings, stands 51st among Americans. And in TCU, the Rose Bowl gets a team ranked 65th in popularity — only 0.2% of Americans call it their favorite.” Another reason not to be surprised the Sugar Bowl lobbied Ohio State not to suspend five starters.
