The college football rankings 2010 have no debate today. While the college football rankings 2010 in the human polls are cemented today, the BCS will follow with their standings tonight. All of them will be in agreement about Oregon and Auburn at No. 1 and No. 2. Still, the BCS might disagree with which one is No. 1, although that will only determine who wears the home jersey now. Otherwise, the college football rankings for the AP and USA TODAY are just starting the coronation.
In the USA TODAY and AP, Oregon was the No. 1 team going into this weekend. However, Auburn came is as the No. 1 in the BCS. But both just needed to win yesterday, to make the 1-2 debate meaningless.
After they did just that, the college football rankings 2010 are set to close the regular season with no controversy. In the USA TODAY, Oregon remains at No. 1, and is likely to stay that way in the AP as well. But they will both be well ahead of TCU when the BCS standings come out tonight.
TCU, Wisconsin and Stanford were all absent yesterday, so they will enter the bowls in the top 5. Ohio State and Michigan State are 6-7, but the Buckeyes will likely head to the Sugar Bowl, while the Spartans go to the Capital One.
There is a tie in the college football rankings 2010 between two BCS teams. The USA TODAY has Big 12 champion Oklahoma, and likely at-large team Arkansas tied at eighth. However, the Sooners may get Connecticut in the Fiesta Bowl, while the Razorbacks are projected to face Ohio State in the Sugar.
Boise State rounded out the top 10 – with Virginia Tech fittingly one spot back at No. 11, despite their ACC crown. Nebraska went down to 16’th, while South Carolina only fell to 20’th. As for Big East championship Connecticut, they led the “Others receiving votes” section of the USA TODAY.
This raises the possibility that the college football rankings 2010 will not include one of the BCS teams. However, Big East runner up West Virginia is at No. 21, ahead of the Connecticut team that beat them out for the Fiesta Bowl berth.
Yet at this point, the polls have no extra meaning anymore. After Oregon and Auburn won, the USA TODAY, AP and BCS standings became useless, at least in determining the national championship. The Ducks and Tigers will officially be on their way, after the final college football rankings are released tonight.
