I’ve been brought numerous things more than 22 years in this business however I’ve NEVER been known as a BCS master. Believe it or not, exactly who might WANT to be known as one? That being stated, we’re left with the BCS deciding school football’s public title game matchup and the vast majority are a little anxious nowadays, as nearly EVERYONE is envisioning a Texas/USC or USC/Texas (however you like) standoff in the current year’s Rose Bowl.
The first BCSกีฬาทั่วไป standings were delivered on October 17 and there were gossipy tidbits that while USC would be No. 1, agreement No. 2 in the surveys Texas, could end up behind Va Tech in the standings. Those feelings of dread were unwarranted, as USC and Texas were a strong one-two in the first BCS standings. I delay here for a second to remind everybody that since the BCS’ commencement in 1998, the two groups positioned first and second in the underlying standings of the year, have NEVER met in the BCS’ season-finishing title game!
Proceeding onward, the second BCS standings were delivered this previous Monday. In fairly a shock, USC tumbled to No. 2 with Texas climbing to the main spot. The edge of .0007, was the nearest ever between the initial two spots in the standings history. USC claims the country’s longest series of wins at 29 games (Texas has the second-best streak at only 14!), has been positioned No. 1 in the AP survey for 26 back to back surveys (a record-breaking record) and is the double cross safeguarding public boss yet now ends upat No. 2!
For USC fans, it’s not as awful as is sounds. USC is serenely in front of No. 3 Va Tech and recall, No. 2 is similarly tantamount to No. 1 in this ‘game’, as the two of them advance to the Rose Bowl. In reality, Texas, which has not any more positioned groups on its outstanding timetable, is in more serious peril of dropping out of one the best two spots than USC. The Trojans despite everything have Cal (No. 23 in the BCS), Fresno State (unranked in the BCS yet 22nd in the AP and 24 in the mentors’ survey) and UCLA (No. 9 in the BCS) on their timetable.
As of now, Va Tech is in the “feared” No. 3 spot (see USC in 2003 and Auburn in 2004). Notwithstanding, the Hokies play Boston College (BCS No. 12) Thursday night in addition to even now have Miami-Fl (No. 8 in the BCS) and a reasonable ACC title-game standoff on tap with Florida State on December 3 (No. 11 in the BCS), to support their PC rankings. As of now, there are SIX unbeatens staying in school football and it’s conceivable that the year could end with upwards of four.
Either USC or UCLA needs to lose when those groups meet on December 3 and expecting Georgia and Alabama were to stay unbeaten through the finish of the standard season, the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide would meet in the SEC title game, dropping either from the positions of the unbeaten.
Talking about unbeatens, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, UCLA, USC and Va Tech are each of the 7-0. Notwithstanding, just Texas is an ideal 7-0 ATS. The groups consolidated ATS mark is 26-16, or 61.9 percent. At the opposite finish of the range, FOUR Division I-A schools enter this present end of the week’s activity winless. The rundown incorporates Buffalo (0-7), New Mexico State (0-7), Rice (0-6) and Temple (0-8). Of those four, just Rice, at 0-6 ATS, is additionally winless against the focuses! The consolidated ATS sign of the four winless schools is 11-17 or 39.3 percent.
