College Football Polls
December 4, 2011 by staff
College Football Polls, And with that, the college football regular season is over. It’s a sad day, in some ways, but exciting in others. Where once we thought a rematch in the BCS Championship was inevitable, now we’re not so sure. It all comes down to this week’s college football rankings, which will be released throughout the day on Sunday.
To be clear, the top-two probably won’t change in the human polls. But it doesn’t matter whether the rankings change; the number behind the rankings will be key on Sunday. Yes, LSU will be the unquestioned No. 1, but if Oklahoma is able to steal a few votes and close part of the gap to Alabama, things could get interesting when the BCS rankings are released.
How the Harris and Coaches Polls shake out, all the way down to single votes, will be crucial on Sunday when deciding whether Alabama or Oklahoma State will get a shot at LSU. And we’ll start to get a better idea of what could happen when the BCS rankings are released in the evening as the poll results are made public on Sunday morning.
Here’s a look at the games that mattered this week.
No. 1 LSU 42, No. 14 Georgia 10. At least there’s no debate about this one. The Honey Badger still does amazing things and LSU is still the easy No. 1 team in the country.
No. 3 Oklahoma State 44, No. 10 Oklahoma 10. The Cowboys did exactly what they needed to do on Saturday evening. A convincing win, perhaps one that would sway a couple voters, was the order of the day, and Oklahoma State did just that. Now everything gets a lot more interesting.
No. 20 Clemson 38, No. 5 Virginia Tech 10. Many wondered whether the Hokies were for real heading into the ACC Championship and Clemson hit the gas to leave Virginia Tech in the dust in the second half. The big loss could reverberate in the rankings on Sunday.
