Michigan the only unbeaten team in America after Duke loss, will play for No. 1 ranking Sunday
ANN ARBOR -- There's only one undefeated team left in college basketball.
And it resides in Ann Arbor.
After North Carolina State knocked off No. 1 Duke on Saturday afternoon, the second-ranked Wolverines (16-0) are the last remaining unbeaten in America.
And, if Michigan can beat No. 15 Ohio State on Sunday (1:30 p.m., CBS), it'll likely rise to No. 1 nationally in both major polls come Monday.
At 16-0, Michigan has currently tied its program record for the best start to a season in school history. A win Sunday would make Michigan 17-0 for the first time ever.
The last time the Wolverines were ranked No. 1 was 1992, when Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King helped Michigan open the 1992-93 campaign as the preseason No. 1.
Michigan has dropped its last eight games at Ohio State, though, last beating the Buckeyes in Columbus on Jan. 15, 2003 -- two years before Thad Matta began his tenure at Ohio State.
