BCS Computer Rankings Week Two: Auburn Rides Strong Showing to the Top
With two third-place votes from the human polls early on Sunday, the Auburn Tigers needed some real help from the computers in order to take the No. 1 overall spot in the second BCS rankings.
And that’s exactly what they got. The Tigers received three of the six first place votes from the BCS computers and finished with a very strong .980 computer average after throwing out their highest and lowest rankings.
Missouri siphons off much of Oklahoma’s computer strength from last weekend, coming in a very strong .960 average.
TCU, Boise State and Utah are all in the top ten, however many might argue that they are being short changed by the computers.
Poll No. 2 Boise State is a distant sixth at .780 and BCS No. 8 Utah is tenth at .640. TCU does get the computer support they want, and land at a strong .870 for a non-AQ conference team.
