First off, LSU needs to go further down the list. Georgia needs to take 7th. Notre Dame is just been lucky. Pittsburgh had it and screwed up in the fourth quarter. Notre Dame will get beat and is way overrated!!!
Why is Nebraska even on the top 25????
I like KSU and Oregon being up there. I would love to see Bama and KSU go at for the National Championship. Will Oregon’s 13th game give them an edge over KSU with the rankings in the end of regular season play?
I hope all this USC hype at the beginning of the season will be enough for them to beat Notre Dame?

If the season ended today, the following teams would playing in the BCS-Bowls:

Championship Game: Alabama vs. Kansas State
Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Louisville
Rose Bowl: Oregon vs. Nebraska
Sugar Bowl: Georgia vs. Notre Dame
Orange Bowl: Florida State vs. Oregon State
