Bleacher Creature Top 25 Football Rankings: Week 15

Kristofer GreenSenior Writer IDecember 3, 2008

Much has been made this week of the Big XII tie-breaker that will send Oklahoma to the Big XII title game. 

Fair or not, the Sooners will meet Missouri and Texas will be home to watch two teams it beat during the regular season play for the Big XII Championship.  The voters in the Bleacher Creature Poll don't agree as Texas edges out the Sooners for the No. 3 spot.

The other hot topic this week has been the discussion of who should claim the final at-large BCS bid:  Ohio State or Boise State.

The Buckeyes are 10-2 and played the 11th-toughest schedule in the country.  Boise State is 12-0 and played the 72nd-toughest schedule. 

In all the major polls BCS leads Ohio State in the rankings, but in the Bleacher Creature Poll the Buckeyes have the slightest advantage and claim the No. 9 spot.
