    Re: College Football AP Poll

    If 10 years ago you asked me if I thought I'd ever see a day when the highest ranked school in the State of Florida would be USF, I would have not only have said "no," I would have suggested that you get your head examined.

      That's the team I saw trounce UNC the Saturday before the RAMS @ Bucs game. They looked awesome, totally dominated UNC. I even bought one of their baseball caps to add to my collection.

          Gotta say, I love the position WVU is in in the BCS. Hoping for either an LSU loss or that the winner of Kansas/Missouri loses to OU in the Big XII championship.

            Yep, Mizzou and Kansas control their own destiny. If Kansas wins out, doesn't matter. If Mizzou wins out, they will leapfrog WVU.

              Fair chance of that happening as WVU is the only BCS top 4 that doesn't have to go through a Conference championship.
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                I don't remember there ever being this much intrigue in the hunt for the BCS Championship. For once it looks like whatever happens in the final few weeks, there will be little argument about who ends up playing in the title game. It's almost as if there is an ad-hoc playoff in the works.

                  All WVU needs is to beat their arch-rivals at home in a nighttime 100th edition of the Backyard Brawl! Let's go Mountaineers!

                    If there was ever a lock.........

                    I just hope the media voters don't try and get cute and attempt to manipulate things.

                    With the Mizzou/Oklahoma game airing at about the same time, I'm glad I have two TV's!!

                      I'm new to college football, just started watching this season and cheer for Penn State. Right now do we go by BCS standings or Associated Press?

                        It you're USC, you go by any old poll, if you're legitimately after the National Championship, you go by the BCS!

                                NEW YORK -- The TCU football team is ranked 25th in this week's Associated Press Top 25 poll.
                                The Horned Frogs (5-1, 4-0) have won four straight and sit alone atop the Mountain West Conference standings. TCU hosts Army Saturday at 6 p.m.

                                TCU is appearing in the Top 25 for the second time this season. The Frogs were at No. 22 following a season-opening 17-10 win at Oklahoma.

                                The Frogs (7-1, 5-0) remained the lone unbeaten team in the Mountain West Conference after yesterday's 48-10 win at Air Force. TCU is at San Diego State Saturday in a 7 p.m. (Central) contest.

                                TCU is in the Top 20 for the first time since it was tied for 18th in the Dec. 7, 2003 poll.

                                Miami and Florida State tumbled in the Associated Press poll on Sunday, falling out of the top 10 after being upset on the road.

                                The Hurricanes' first loss of the season, a 31-28 defeat at North Carolina, dropped them seven spots to No. 11 in the media poll. They were one of five ranked teams to lose on the road to unranked opponents Saturday.

                                The Seminoles lost 20-17 at Maryland to snap a six-game winning streak. They fell eight spots to No. 13.

                                Southern California is No. 1 and Oklahoma is No. 2 for the 10th consecutive poll. Texas-El Paso is No. 25 as coach Mike Price has the Miners in the rankings for the first time in their history.

                                USC received 56 first-place votes and 1,616 points after a 42-12 victory at Washington State. The Sooners had eight first-place votes, five less than last week, and 1,556 points after squeaking by Oklahoma State 38-35 on Saturday.

                                The Sooners are back on the road next week at Texas A&M. "It is another big game and an important game in the Big 12," Sooners coach Bob Stoops said.

                                Texas A&M was upset 35-34 in overtime to Baylor and fell six spots to No. 22.

                                No. 3 Auburn (8-0) received a first-place vote. California moved up three spots to No. 4, its highest ranking since 1952, and Wisconsin (8-0) is No. 5.

                                Rounding out the first 10 are Texas, Utah, Georgia, Tennessee and Michigan. The top five teams in the coaches poll are Southern California, Oklahoma, Auburn, Wisconsin and Georgia.

                                The Bowl Championship Series releases its standings Monday, with USC and Oklahoma expected to remain first and second, respectively.

                                In the AP poll, No. 12 Virginia is right behind Miami and in front of Florida State.

                                No. 14 is Louisville, followed by West Virginia, unbeaten Boise State, LSU, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State and Iowa.

                                Joining Texas A&M and UTEP in the final five are No. 21 Southern Mississippi, No. 23 Arizona State and No. 24 Boston College, which is making its season debut in the rankings.

                                Price's Miners (6-2) are in the midst of one of the best turnarounds of the season. They clinched just their second winning season in the last 16 years with a 38-20 win over San Jose State and matched their victory total for the three previous seasons combined.

                                Falling out of the rankings was Purdue, which lost its third in a row, 13-10 at Northwestern. The Boilermakers were No. 5 just three weeks ago. Minnesota also dropped out after losing 30-21 at Indiana.

                                Halfway through the season, the national championship race has some feel, some texture.

                                Dodd's Power Poll

                                1. Oklahoma
                                2. USC

                                7. Purdue
                                8. Louisville

                                13. Wisconsin

                                15. Cal
                                16. LSU
                                17. Michigan
                                18. Tennessee
                                19. Florida
                                20. West Virginia
                                21. Oklahoma State
                                22 Minnesota
                                23. Navy
                                24. Southern Miss
                                25. Missouri
                                25. UCLA
                                Non-BCS Top 10
                                1. Louisville
                                2. Utah
                                3. Boise State
                                4. Navy
                                5. Southern Miss
                                6. Florida Atlantic
                                7. UAB
                                8. Memphis
                                9. Wyoming
                                10. Northern Illinois
                                And some chaos just in case you forgot the BCS is a week away from weighing in. USC remains No. 1 but lost style (and poll) points in beating Cal. No. 2. Oklahoma handled Texas to creep closer. It's hard to believe Miami is now a heartbeat away at No. 3 considering some of its problems.

                                What's it all mean? Refer back to last season when the BCS couldn't make up its mind between LSU, USC and Oklahoma. A similar nightmare scenario is developing.

                                Three words: Split national champions. The new BCS that was supposed to lessen that likelihood looks like it is leading down the same path. Remember, there is nothing in the new BCS formula that can pick the "right" teams if there are three or more worthy teams for the two Orange Bowl slots at the end of the season. By leaning more on the human polls this year, the BCS commissioners are hoping the credibility of those rankings will sort things out.

                                One of many problems: The computers still count for one-third of the formula, which could just as likely create split champions as prevent it. Last season, LSU, Oklahoma and USC all lost one game before the bowls. The BCS math picked Oklahoma and LSU to play in the Sugar Bowl despite the fact USC was No. 1 in both human polls.

                                We'll say it again: More reliance on the human polls this year doesn't necessarily clean things up.

                                Here's an early glimpse at this year's potential train wreck: Assume there are these 13 legitimate national championship contenders at this point. Nine of them are undefeated -- USC, Oklahoma, Miami, Purdue, Wisconsin, Virginia, Utah, Arizona State and Auburn. Four have one loss -- Florida State, Michigan, Cal and Tennessee.

                                At this point a year ago (using the Oct. 12, 2003 Associated Press poll), there were 14 contenders. But there were only three undefeated teams worthy of title...

                                Oklahoma is the only No. 2.

                                After a week of sharing the No. 2 ranking with Auburn, Oklahoma edged ahead of the Tigers in the Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday.

                                No. 1 Southern California lost some support during a bye week, dropping three first-place votes to 48. Still, the Trojans have a comfortable lead in the rankings with 1,603 points.

                                Oklahoma has nine first-place votes, one more than last week, and 1,541 points. No. 3 Auburn got two more first-place votes than last week, increasing its total to eight, and 1,536 points.

                                The Sooners defeated Baylor 35-0 on Saturday, and Auburn rallied in the second half to beat Alabama 21-13.

                                Oklahoma decided to rest its starters once it got a big lead against the Bears, instead of piling it on to impress voters. Last week, Sooners coach Bob Stoops did the opposite against Nebraska.

                                "I'm comfortable in the fact that we chose to run the clock out," Stoops said. "Anyone that doesn't see the dilemma we're in is not being totally fair. We're in a bad, bad position right now."

                                In the coaches poll, USC is still No. 1 and No. 2 Oklahoma added two points to its lead over No. 3 Auburn.

                                The Tigers (10-0) needed to pull way out in front of the Sooners in the polls to make up ground in the Bowl Championship Series standings, which will be released Monday.

                                The Sooners are second behind USC in the BCS standings because of strong computer ranking. To make up for Oklahoma's large advantage in the computers, Auburn needs to be a clear No. 2 in the polls.

                                No. 4 California, No. 5 Utah and No. 6 Texas all held their positions from last week in the new rankings.

                                Louisville moved up to No. 7, followed by Georgia, Miami and Boise State. Florida State dropped 10 spots to No. 20 after losing to Florida, 20-13. The Gators moved back into the rankings at No. 25. Michigan, which was upset by Ohio State 37-21, dropped six spot to No. 13.

                                Virginia Tech is No. 11 and Iowa, the co-Big Ten champ along with the Wolverines, is No. 12. No. 14 is LSU, followed by Tennessee, Virginia, Boston College and Arizona State.

                                Wisconsin is down to No. 20 after its second straight loss, a 30-7 defeat at Iowa that dashed the Badgers Rose Bowl hopes.

                                No. 21 West Virginia, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and UTEP join Florida in the final five.
