Projected BCS Standings Week Four: Florida Takes Advantage
Alabama was struggling, Texas was down big against UCLA and some of the best teams in the nation were looking a little iffy.
About midway through the day on Saturday, a BCS shake up looked to be in store during week four. But it turned out to just be a slight rejiggering of the standings.
Alabama would prove too much for Arkansas, but Texas did eventually fall to UCLA, giving the college football landscape its first shake in the 2010 season.
Waiting right there to take advantage was Florida, who finally looked like the highly skilled team they were supposed to be in dismantling Kentucky on Saturday, and took Texas’s spot among the top of the BCS for their own.
Oklahoma let Cincinnati stay in the game until a perfect executed onside kick just wouldn’t bounce the Bearcats way, and remained undefeated headed into next week’s Red River Shootout.
Boise State and TCU kept on track for what they both hope is a shot at a BCS National Championship Game, but unless something drastic happens above them, may only turn out to be a BCS bowl bid. Both looked strong against non-conference foes.
Oregon, Nebraska, LSU and Auburn all got by on Saturday afternoon and night to keep their hopes alive, although none of the four would likely be ranked among the top eight in the BCS standings if it came out today.
So, here’s what the BCS standings would probably look like if they were released on Sunday, without any polling information.
