With the top teams taking care of business, there isn’t much movement in my bowl projections. Ohio State still is headed to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl—not the BCS title game. I still think the deck is stacked against the Buckeyes, who appear stuck at No. 4 in the BCS standings, being able to ascend into the Nos. 1 or 2 spots in the final BCS standings.
A thrilling Saturday of action went a long way in shaking up my weekly Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. But, in the end, the trio at the top–Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State–reframed its top-billing status with impressive wins. After that trio, it’s surprising Minnesota checking in at No. 4. See my latest list in this post.
There was so much to learn on Saturday, one of the most exciting days of action all season. A last-second win by Nebraska … a close finish between Minnesota and Indiana … overtime between Penn State and Illinois. Here’s what I learned.
Before we turn our attention to Week 10, it’s time to revisit how the BTN.com team and Big Ten fans did with their Week 10 Big Ten predictions. Sean Merriman went a perfect 6-0, as did Big Ten fans and Tom Dienhart, to move into sole possession of first place. Fans, you’re only one game off the pace, tied with Stephen Bardo.
The latest college football polls, including the BCS Standings, were released Sunday. Ohio State remained No. 4 in the all-important BCS Standings following Saturday’s 56-0 win at Purdue. Michigan State moved up five spots, from No. 22 to No. 17, and Wisconsin comes in at No. 24. See the full BCS standings, as well as the AP and Coaches Polls in this post.
