New BCS Rankings Hit The Press Wire, More Upsets Shake Up Sports World
Of course, we all know that Texas Tech defeated then fifth-ranked West Virginia here in Lubbock on Saturday, but what else happened, and how would Tech’s victory relate to the BCS?
The only other upset that was really obvious was LSU’s victory over South Carolina. South Carolina had found some great success with Steve Spurrier, but couldn’t quite squeeze out the W in Death Valley.
The BCS standings were released this week, featuring -you guessed it- Alabama with the top spot, Florida being second, Oregon taking third, Kansas State taking fourth, and Notre Dame completing the top 5.
Texas Tech debuted at 17, Oklahoma at 9, West Virginia at 13, TCU at 23, and a struggling Texas team debuted at 25 (how is that possible).
In other news, the Seattle Seahawks took down the New England Patriots in a surprise victory, and the Denver Broncos came back from a 24-point deficit to take the victory in San Diego 35-24 over the Chargers. Green Bay trounced Houston, as Rodgers threw six touchdowns and pleased fantasy owners who own him, and punished those who don’t.
