First official BCS standings released today

The first official BCS standings of the season will be released tonight, with Alabama and Oregon expected to be in the driver's seat for a matchup in the BCS title game.

My projected ratings are now posted. Note that all data in this chart is complete for this week except for Massey.  His ratings are accurate for the BCS top 25, but last week's data for the other teams. 

Florida got a nice boost from the voters this week and is right on Oregon's heels.  If the computers come in more in favor for the Gators than I project, they could end up in the No. 2 spot.

I also look for a precipitous drop by West Virginia. South Carolina, Texas and Stanford will fall as well but should stay in the top 25. Texas Tech should join the top 25.
