Alabama Toppled By South Carolina, Will Lose No. 1 Ranking
Alabama has fallen to South Carolina in rather shocking fashion, 35-21, ending a 19-game winning streak and likely an extended streak of being the No. 1 team in the nation.
The BCS standings will not be out until October 17, however the shake up will begin tomorrow with the release of five of the six computer polls, the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and the first Harris Interactive College Football Poll of the season.
In the most recent BCS simulations, Oklahoma and Boise State were ranked No. 2 and No. 3 behind the Crimson Tide. One of the two will likely take over in tomorrow’s BCS simulations.
Oklahoma had the week off and Boise State plays later tonight against Toledo.
No. 4 Oregon could also have a chance to take over the top spot, but the computers have not been kind to the Ducks thus far in the season.
Ohio State also is disliked among the computers although loved by the human voters, and came in at No. 7 in last week’s BCS simulation.
The Buckeyes have been ranked No. 2 all season in both the AP and Coaches’ Poll.
Look for a projected BCS from BCS Know How later tonight.
