bcs-rankingsOct 18, (THAINDIAN NEWS) BCS ranking or Bowl Championship Series rankings were released in Sunday on ESPN. Oklahoma Sooners is on number one position in the list, followed by Oregon on the second position. The difference between them is very small. The BCS rankings takes into account the polls and computer selection methods in order to determine the team rankings. BCS rankings was started for the first time in 1998 season. However, in the Associated Press Poll for NCAA College football rankings, Oregon is ranked first on the list while Oklahoma is ranked third after Boise state. The rankings has already become a talking point for many people regarding its fairness and unfairness.

Many are wondering as to why Oregon is not first in the BCS ranking, despite being on rank one in all the other polls. The reason for this is being attributed to Oklahoma scoring more in the six computer rankings. The scoring of machine over humans is not something that a few sports fans are willing to accept. They are feeling a little disgruntled with the BCS rankings. As there are many more games to be played, there is no surety that the top two in the BCS list will continue to hold their positions at the end of the season.

The top ten teams in the BCS rankings are Oklahoma, Oregon, Boise state, Auburn, TCU, LSU, Alabama, Michigan State, Utah and Ohio State. Kansas State is on number 22 while Virgina Tech is on number 25. Oklahoma is unbeaten in their last six games but will be facing tough challenges in the form of Oregon and Boise state.
