College Football Rankings: Boise State Oddly High In One Poll

While the official BCS standings won't begin until October, many of the rankings that are components of the standings have begun. Jeff Sagarin's computer rankings are one of those that factors in to the BCS standings and his listing after the opening week of the season was published on Tuesday morning with the Boise State Broncos still very high on the list despite a loss in their opener against Michigan State.

In fact, Boise State is No. 5 on the list, seven spots ahead of Michigan State, which finished No. 12. While the Broncos are still high on Sagarin's rankings, they are expected to fall out of the polls entirely when The Associated Press and Coaches Polls are released this week.

Other questionable allotments include the TCU Horned Frogs as the No. 2 team in the nation despite having not played a game yet this season.
