UO, OU, Oh, My!

(From BCS Guru)

Just when you thought we already had our upset of the week on Thursday, Texas Tech threw a monkey wrench to the BCS machine that was just beginning to churn somewhat normally.

Oklahoma's loss provided new life to the BCS title quests of West Virginia and Ohio State. And even Arizona State, with a key game against USC on Thanksgiving, might get back in the race as well.

The Guru projects that LSU will remain No. 1, Kansas will be the new No. 2, with West Virginia moving into No. 3, followed by Missouri, Ohio State and Arizona State. Every BCS conference team below No. 6 has at least two losses, and for now, is out of the title race.

Ohio State's victory might also have driven a large nail to the coffin, if not the final one, of Hawai'i's hopes of qualifying for a BCS berth. With the Top 16 clause not likely in effect, the Warriors will need a minor miracle to get into the Top 12, and with it, an automatic BCS berth.

The Guru's projected Top 15: 1. LSU; 2. Kansas; 3. West Virginia; 4. Missouri; 5. Ohio State; 6. Arizona State; 7. Georgia; 8. Virginia Tech; 9. Oregon; 10. Oklahoma; 11. USC; 12. Florida; 13. Texas; 14. Virginia; 15. Boston College.

aIf West VIRGINIA plays it's A-game,they can win over anyone in
the country.There's are some very
good teams in postion to play for the NC,but with the leadership of
Pat White,if given the chance he
also win's the Heisman.
P.S. Look for the Mountaineers
to do well in BB,also with the help
of Huggins.

David,
WVG gave up too much in the Cincy game. Ohio State moves ahead of West Virginia in BCS rankings. They were only 80 points behind and based on Saturdays results picked up more points holding Michigan to 3 points and under 100 yards.

mike says.... Has anyone looked at WVU's schedule? What is their big victory ? They have basically beaten a bunch of 5-5 teams. How in the world could anyone vote a 1 loss team from the Big Least ahead of a 1 loss team from a real football league {OSU - Big Ten ans ASU - Pac TEn } Come on voters open your eyes have you seen them play and struggle to beat Louisville and Cinn?
