The Sagarin computer ratings are one component in determining the BCS standings, which will be released for the first time this season on Sunday night. This week's Sagarin Ratings keep Alabama and LSU in the top two spots. They are the only schools to go over 100 in their ratings.
Oklahoma took the third spot while Wisconsin and Boise State round out the top five. Boise State is going to have a hard time leaping to the top of these rankings. Even with Alabama and LSU playing each other this season, guaranteeing one team a loss, the Broncos still need Oklahoma and Wisconsin to drops games. Both could run the tables through the end of the season.
These ratings also take into account FCS teams. We note this because Colorado comes in at No. 107, behind 13 FCS teams. Colorado State checks in 20 spots later at No. 127. The Northern Colorado Bears are in danger of plummeting all the way to the bottom. They are 0-7 and No. 233 this week.
On a bit brighter note, Air Force is No. 73, but the Falcons had higher hopes this season.
Here is the top 25 in the Sagarin Rankings:
- Boise State
- Oklahoma State
- Texas A&M
- Kansas State
- West Virginia
- Penn State
- Virginia Tech
- South Carolina
- Arizona State
- Michigan State
