Resume No. 1 belongs to Ohio State, which is No. 1 in the BCS standings. Resume No. 2 belongs to Arizona State, which is No. 8 in the BCS. Let's review the qualifications:
Resume No. 1: A 7-0 record that includes victories over two Mid-American Conference teams, two bottom-feeding Big Ten teams and one I-AA opponent.
Resume No. 2: A 7-0 record that includes victories over Colorado (which beat Oklahoma, No. 5 in the BCS) and Oregon State, plus two other teams from arguably the toughest conference in the land (four of the top 14 teams in the BCS standings are from the Pac-10).
Somehow, the Sun Devils have fallen through the cracks. This despite a resume that is equal or — dare we say it — better than the one put together by the Buckeyes. One brave soul — Neal McCready of the Mobile Press-Register — threw fear aside this week and voted Arizona State No. 1 in the Associated Press poll. Pitchfork Nation caught up with McCready, who spelled out his reasons for putting the Sun Devils at the top of his list.
