Yesterday the Bowl Championship Series released their first rankings for the 2011 season and the Tigers from LSU top the list. No big surprise here as LSU is also #1 in both the Associated Press and Coaches polls. Through 7 games they are undefeated including impressive wins over Oregon, West Virginia, and Florida.
The difference between LSU and Alabama right now in the BCS computers is 0.0003. I do not know exactly what that means but I know that is a very small number. I have never gotten along with computers and have disagreed with the computers’ champion in many seasons. Hopefully that will not be the case this year. #1 LSU and #2 Alabama are set to play in Tuscaloosa in 2 weeks, and #3 Oklahoma will play #4 Oklahoma State in Stillwater in the final week of the season. Assuming that these teams do not lose before or after these games there will be a clear-cut #1 vs. #2 match-up. If not then Boise could sneak into the championship game.
