BCS Standings Released: Boise State Gains Ground On TCU

The BCS standings were released early today and while the top four stayed the same, but Boise State cut the TCU lead in half, and now it is completely possible that Boise State could jump TCU. TCU is off next week but then faces one of the worst teams in college football in New Mexico. W/hile Boise State has an above average Fresno State team and Nevada who is 18th in the current BCS standings.

TCU was dinged because Utah choked against Notre Dame and Oregon State is free falling as well, so it will be very close come December 5th when the BCS standings come out.

BCS STANDINGS

Here are my weekly BCS Bowl projections based on how I think the season will, because predicting what they are now is too easy and not as fun for conversation. Also here is the bowl selection order.

A bowl choosing a replacement team may not select any of the following:

  A. A team in the NCG; 
  B. The host team for another BCS Bowl; 
  C. When two bowls lose host teams, then the bowl losing the number one team may not select a replacement team from the same conference as the number two team, unless the bowl losing the number two team consents.

4. After steps No. 1, 2 and 3 have been completed, any bowl with an unfilled slot shall select a team from the automatic qualifiers and/or at-large teams in the following order for the games played in 2007 through 2010:

  January 2011 games: Sugar, Orange, Fiesta

 

BCS Title Game:

Boise State vs. Oregon

Rose Bowl:

Stanford vs. Wisconsin

Sugar Bowl:

Auburn vs. TCU

Orange Bowl:

Virginia Tech vs. South Florida

Fiesta Bowl:

Oklahoma State vs. Ohio State

The main reason for the Orange Bowl to take South Florida over Ohio State is because if South Florida is the champion of the Big East it would be good for business for the Orange Bowl to take a local team. I assume Auburn loses to Alabama but wins the title game, and I also do not think a win over South Carolina can put them back in the two spot. Partly because Boise State's finally opponent Nevada should be ranked higher then Auburn's opponent South Carolina.
