BCS Era No. 2 -- Ohio State

Overall Record: 98-27 (.784), 4th
BCS Bowl Record: 4-2 (6, 2nd)
National Titles (Game Record): 1 (1-2)
Final AP Rankings: 2-U-U-U-1-4-20-4-2-5 (Top 5: 6/Top 10: 6)

OK, so the Buckeyes haven’t exactly covered themselves with glory, having been walloped by their SEC foes in the last two BCS title games. But there’s no denying that Jim Tressel has made Ohio State an elite program that’s played in four BCS bowl games in the past five years.

Ohio State has won three consecutive Big Ten championships and will be the prohibitive favorite to win it again this year. The Buckeyes have owned their archrival Michigan in the Tressel era, winning six of seven, including the last four. But Ohio State has to figure out how to beat SEC teams, against whom it has a dreadful 0-9 record, including 0-3 under Tressel.

Hey not to be a dick but Ohio State is about even against SEC teams all time, but they are 0-9 in bowl games. They are 0-3 against SEC with Tresel, though.

Yeah, good luck with that.
