Early BCS standings

Posted on: November 1, 2009 9:48 am

The top three teams in the BCS standings seemingly will remain that way when the rankings are released Sunday night.

Jerry Palm was projecting Sunday morning that Florida will be No. 1, followed by Alabama and Texas. Once again, the order of the top three doesn’t matter as long as they keep winning. Alabama and Florida are on track to play in the SEC championship game. Texas cleared its last, most significant hurdle with a 41-14 victory at Oklahoma State.

Iowa looks like it is going to remain fourth after a win over Indiana that featured six turnovers. The biggest news might be how Boise State and TCU end up. TCU beat UNLV 41-0 but Boise State might vault the Horned Frogs this week because of Oregon’s success. The Broncos will continue to get a schedule strength bump as long as the Ducks keep winning.  Boise State beat Oregon on opening night 19-8.

Oregon, 7-1, should be the highest ranked one-loss team. Palm had the Ducks at No. 8 Sunday morning.

Palm's updated top seven before the human polls were released later on Sunday:

1. Florida
2. Alabama
3. Texas
4. Iowa
5. Boise State
6. TCU
7. Cincinnati

Fox will reveal the new BCS standings in a 10-second flash tonight between 7:15 pm.-8 p.m.

Yes, let's jsut ignore an undefeated SEC Champion and let Oregon and Texas play for the thing.

Better yet, let's let Boise play because their entire season is based on beating weka teams and the gret season Oregon has put up. what the heck, let the Horned Frogs play too. Whiel we are at it, how about a division three scholl that is UNDEFEATED. Let them play..let them pl;ay..let them play...

Early BCS standings

I know how much you win by isn't part of the formula any more and now USC is just another team but I'm sorry, the Ducks look good and I despite the loss to Boise I can't name 5 teams better than them right now.  Texas and Oregon to me are playing the best ball in the country and I would love to see those two play.
