New AP Poll Released: Boise State Gets Jumped By Oregon For Number 3 In College Football Rankings

Oregon University Has Leap Frogged Boise State To Take Control Of The Number 3 Spot On The Associated Press' College Football Poll

 

Everyone has been waiting for it to happen since the release of the 2010 College Football Pre-Season Poll but leading up to this past weekend Boise State held strong to their number 3 ranking on the list. They did everything required of them beating out 2 ranked opponents (Virginia Tech and Oregon State) early in the season and remaining unbeaten heading into their WAC Conference schedule, but on Sunday evening the expected happened and the Broncos were leap frogged by early Pac-10 leader Oregon, trading spots with the Ducks, leaving the Broncos at number 4. Both won on in a convincing manner Saturday but what has bitten BSU in the rear end in years past is doing the same thing once again. Unfortunately things only look to get worse for Boise State as most teams will begin to settle into their conference schedules for the next couple weeks. Tough opponents week in and week out for schools that are apart of Bowl Championship Series Conferences will only causes mass confusion as media members and coaches try to decide where to rank teams while being fair to the big schools and small ones alike.

Other changes to this weeks AP Top 25 include powerhouses Texas, USC, and Penn State falling from the rankings after all 3 suffered conference losses this weekend. This brings an end to Texas’ 162 week stay in the Top 25 rankings. The last time they were unranked at any point during the season was October 15, 2000. Also falling from the Top 25 was North Carolina State, who lost to unranked Virginia Tech 41 – 30 Saturday. With 4 teams dropping out of the Top 25, 4 new teams were inserted to take their place. Florida State makes a triumphant returns to the Top 25 while 3 others; Missouri, Oklahoma State, and Air Force join the top programs for the first time in 2010.

I can almost guarantee that this is not the last time that the rankings will change as we make our way through the 2010 college football season. Most college football commentators and spectators alike have come to the conclusion that  there is really only one legit favorite, being Alabama, while #2 and so on is a toss-up between a couple different programs.
