2011 BCS Standings
October 17, 2011 by staff
2011 BCS Standings, Everyone should be happy. You’ve all got what he wanted. More or less. The first BCS ranking of the season were released Sunday night with LSU No. 1, Alabama No. 2, Oklahoma No. 3 and No. 4 Oklahoma State.
That should make those who want a happy phase. In essence, you have one. The top four teams representing two conferences and two next duels potentially serve as luck removing the national semifinal.
The BCS people and their supporters should be happy because, based on the same stage, is the largest benefactor. As has happened recently, parts of the college football title determination puzzle have fallen into place perfectly. And once again, the BCS could – and no doubt – make the claim that the system works.
The SEC, the home of the last five national champions, have the two best teams in the standings and a good chance of having at least one of his teams play a sixth straight crown. The Big 12 may suggest that it remains a viable league and their teams about the No. 3 and No. 4 spots to support the claim.
The loser of Alabama-LSU are expected in the circumstances that would lead to a rematch in the national title game. The loser of the state of Oklahoma, Oklahoma, because the game is played the day before the BCS championship final is released, probably has no chance in this scenario.
For those who support non-automatic qualifying leagues, Boise State leads the flag at No. 5, although its position may weaken as the season progresses, due to the number of undefeated teams behind them and the likelihood of computer classification slipping week by week, based on their strength of schedule.
Wisconsin and Clemson are at No. 6 and No. 7 respectively. If there is some disruption over them, might have a chance to get one of the top two spots.
Stanford, Michigan and Oregon are ranked 8 to 10 and in the hope of the great problems to befall the highest ranking teams. At number 11 is the State of Kansas. The Wildcats can not get to the big game, but it might have something to say based on the next, back-to-back games against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
And you thought trying to figure out the realignment of conferences was the most fun you will have this year.
Almost everyone has to agree – although not according to the order of the sort – that college football has found a way to keep our attention again. And he has done for those on both sides of playoff contention / BCS.
It is not an easy task to accomplish.
