    I think it will go to USC. I must admit I think this team has at least another year till they are in the National title pic again but as of now they will get the move to second.

      Unfortunately it will be those Spoiled Children from the Pac 10, who barely held off UDub by the hair on their chiney chin chins.

        I want Michigan to go to #2, but It most likely will be USC... USC VS Washington was a close one. If Washington had like 5 seconds left, they could have won.....

            It is Michigan's to lose. If Michigan and OSU play as no. 1 & 2 should 'sc be in the bcs if they have one defeat?

            NNNNNhhhhhhhh! No way they are so over rated with a weak schedule combined with late heroics vs. not very talented and unranked team.

            I would want to see a rematch of the above or someone like WV but not a Boise State or a Louisville who play nobodies.

            I am not trying to be a jerk it is just the way I see it.

            I would like to see a SEC team with one defeat as they beat the C$^) out of each other every season. IMVHO!

            Geaux Notre Dame and Cal.

              It's awful hard to argue against Michigan at this point. Big wins over PSU, Wisconson, Notre Dame, a surprsing Central Michigan. Assuming they get by that trap game in Indiana, the UM/OSU matchup will have the national champ. feel.

              USC is still undefeated, but other than their first two games they haven't played anybody. And as for WV....ask after Louisville. If they show well there, they've got something to talk about.

              If Texas had handled NU instead of squeaking by, they could have put in a claim as well.
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                HUbison I agree with your comment about texas. Other than OSU they have had a patsy sked and OU was overrated before they lost their qb ...

                  I will start early this year
                  by LaRamsFanLongTime
                  USC will once again dominate. Notre dame is looking like they will give us some kick as does UCLA but I think the boys will pull it out. Who does everyone want to talk up this year last year everyone told me OU or Auburn would kill the boys , I did not see OU even show up to play. So cmon guys who's the next team that will destroy USC?

                  USC is simply the best

                  Sorry boys but why even watch this year. USC will be national champs no matter what team they play in the final game.

                  No. 2 Oklahoma gains on No. 1 USC

                  The gap between No. 1 USC and No. 2 Oklahoma is smaller than it's been all season.

                  Advertisement


                  The Sooners' 12-0 shutout of Texas and Southern California's close call against California persuaded some voters in the Associated Press Top 25 released Sunday to change their first-place vote.

                  USC received 41 first-place votes, a season low, and 1,601 points in the media voting. Oklahoma got a season-high 23 first-place votes and 1,582 points, leaving the Sooners 19 points behind the Trojans with the Bowl Championship Series standings just a week away from making their 2004 debut.

                  The BCS will release its newly formulated standings on Oct. 18. The AP poll will count for one-third of a team's BCS points this year. Thecoaches poll will also count for a third and a compilation of computer rankings will make up the remaining one-third.

                  In the latest coaches poll, USC is No. 1, followed by Oklahoma, Miami, Auburn and Purdue.

                  The polls and rankings released on Oct. 17 and 18 will determine the first BCS standings. The top two teams in the BCS standings at the end of the regular season will play in the Orange Bowl for the national title.


                  Oklahoma and RB Adrian Peterson ran past Texas Saturday to close in on No. 1 USC in the polls. (AP)
                  USC and Oklahoma have been 1-2 in the AP and coaches polls since the preseason, but before the Trojans' 23-17 victory over Cal on Saturday the points differential between the teams was more than double what it is now.

                  Voters may have been impressed by the performance of Sooners freshman running back Adrian Peterson, who proved himself a more-than-capable complement to Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jason White by rushing for 225 yards against the Longhorns.

                  "We expected to be able to run the football, and it wasn't just Adrian," Stoops said. "I think our offensive line and the way they played are all part of running the ball. We're improving with it."

                  Georgia had been No. 3, but a 19-14 loss at home to Tennessee on Saturday dropped the Bulldogs to No. 12.

                  Idle Miami moved up one spot to No. 3. No. 4 Auburn received the remaining first-place vote and Purdue moved up four spots to No. 5.

                  Auburn's ranking is the Tigers best since Nov. 6, 1994. Purdue hasn't been ranked this high in 25 years. On Sept. 10, 1979, the Boilermakers were ranked fifth in the country.

                  Unbeaten Virginia is No. 6 and No. 7 is Florida State. The Cavaliers and Seminoles will play in Tallahassee on Saturday.

                  Cal slipped one spot to No. 8; Texas dropped four spots to No. 9; and undefeated Wisconsin is 10th.
