But, Michigan probably won't win out so it's moot
They are now at the mercy of the pollsters and teams ahead of them. If they take care of business with the rest of their schedule and a few teams slip up, they have a chance. Problem is they are going to be in the mix with all the other 1 loss teams. Not to take anything away from ASU but pollsters and computers are going to look at a loss to any FBS school a lot more favorably than a loss to ASU no matter how good ASU is. And then you have the teams in conferences that have championship games whereas the Big 10 doesn't. It's not impossible for Michigan but it's quite improbable. I saw the second half of the game this morning and while ASU is a great team, Michigan would get torn up by LSU or Florida or U$C.
