Surprise Surprise, 2 SEC teams atop the BCS Standings

The quest for this trophy has begun, who will lift it at the end of the season

Is it really that time of the year already? I mean, it is the 3rd week in October, so I guess it’s about that time. But nonetheless, it is time for the inaugural BCS standings, with their percentage points in parentheses. Full Rankings here.

In no shocker to us all, Alabama (.9761) took the top spot. They have seemed to be untouchable all season, beating Ole Miss on the road to push their record to 6-0. The number 2 spot is where we have the controversy, with Florida (.9092) leapfrogging Oregon (.8993) for the inside track on the National title game. Florida moved into the second spot because they have the nations best average computer ranking.

Unfortunately, Florida and Alabama do not play each other this season, unless they both meet up in the SEC Championship game, thus could allow Oregon to slide into the 2 spot or even the number 1 spot.

Following Oregon, is number 4 Kansas State (.8963) and number 5 Notre Dame (.8774), who both moved into the top 5 after big wins this past weekend to stay unbeaten.

LSU, who lost on October 6th, is the highest ranked one-loss team in the rankings at number 6. They are then followed by another one-loss team in South Carolina at number 7, unbeaten Oregon State at number 8, rounded out by one-loss Oklahoma at 9 and USC at 10.

Overall, there are 7 SEC teams in the top 25, along with 7 Big 12 teams in the top 25, but no Big Ten teams in the top 25. The Pac-12 has 4 teams in the top 25 of the Rankings, with 3 in the top 10. The Pac-12 will have its inaugural title game this season, with the possibility of 2 Oregon vs. USC match-ups on the horizon.

It’s only the first set of rankings, and yes they may be a little biased, but regardless this is a good start of where things should be headed for the remainder of the season.

I am not a fan of the SEC bias, but once they get rid of the JV games they have on their schedule and actually play eachother, not so many of them will be ranked so high in the standings.
