Ohio State #2 in Harris Poll Top 25 as well

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes could be be #2 in tonight's BCS standings following the Harris Poll ranking them there.

While Ohio State led Auburn by just 25 total points in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll, the Buckeyes have a far greater margin of 66 in the Week 15 Harris Poll Top 25. The Harris Poll makes up the remaining third of the BCS formula beyond the Coaches Poll and the BCS computer rankings.

In addition to the 66 point edge, the Buckeyes have five first place Harris Poll votes to Auburn's three. Number one ranked Florida State had the remaining 97 in the poll. This marks the largest total number of first place votes between the three major polls (Harris, Coaches, and AP Top 25).

Michigan State checks in at 10th in the Harris which could mean they'll be 10th in tonight's second to last ever BCS standings. Wisconsin fell all the way to #21 after being upset by Penn State Saturday, 31-24.
