Later this evening the first official BCS rankings come out and it is still early and these rankings will be very different from tonight when compared to when the final standings will be released on Sunday Dec. 4. The top three should be some sort of combination between the LSU Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Those teams are the consensus in the Harris Interactive poll and the USA Today coaches poll, plus in the computer rankings that have been made available those three schools are within the top four. That top three could go any way since Alabama looks to have the No. 1 ranking from the computers, LSU tops the Harris poll and Oklahoma tops the coaches poll.

Look for the Oregon Ducks to be in the initial top 10 after their win late last night over the Arizona St. Sun Devils who are ranked in the top 20.

Here is the projected initial top 10 BCS rankings:

 

1. Alabama

2. LSU

3. Oklahoma

4. Oklahoma State

5. Boise State

6. Wisconsin

7. Clemson

8. Stanford

9. Arkansas

10. South Carolina

 

The official BCS standings will be released on ESPN's BCS Countdown show at 6:15 p.m. MT.
