The first BCS Standings will be released two weeks from this Sunday. And right now it’s pretty clear that if they keep winning, Alabama and Ohio State are going to be 1-2.
But after that I’m not so sure. Will Boise State, the Cinderella, be No. 3?
And for all of you folks who want a playoff (and for the record, I want a four-team playoff), just consider that a whole lot can happen between now and Oct. 17. Before the first BCS Standings are released:
No. 1 Alabama, which just escaped with a close win at Arkansas, will play No. 7 Florida (4-0) at home and No. 22 South Carolina (3-1) on the road.
No. 2 Ohio State will play No. 9 Wisconsin (4-0) on the road and at night.
No. 3 Boise State will play New Mexico State (0-3), Toledo (3-1), and San Jose State (1-3). The computers won’t like that.
No. 4 Oregon will play No. 13 Stanford (4-0) on Saturday in a monster game.
No. 5 TCU willl play Colorado State (1-3), Wyoming (1-3), and BYU (1-3). Speaking of BYU, the Cougars sure picked an interesting time in their football history to go independent.
No. 6 Nebraksa will play at Kansas State (4-0) and at home against No. 16 Texas (3-1).
No. 7 Florida will play at No. 1 Alabama (4-0) and at home against No. 10 LSU (4-0).
No. 8 Oklahoma will play No. 16 Texas in Dallas.
No. 9 Wisconsin will play at No. 21 Michigan State (4-0) and at home against No. 2 Ohio State (4-0).
No. 10 LSU will play Tennessee at home and at No. 7 Florida (4-0).
Given what you see on that schedule, how many upsets will there be and what will be the Top 5 in the first BCS Standings?
Here are mine:
2. Ohio State
4. Boise State
