However, they STILL have to win out and that will be tough; probably the toughest next week against Mizzou, who is playing really well.

How many ranked teams has Boise State, Oregon, and TCU played?

TCU will have played three, with their toughest against Utah.

Boise State? Three.

Oregon? Three

If Oklahoma wins out, they deserve to be the number 1 team in the country and play for the National Championship. But there is a lot of football to be played.
Same argument can be made for Auburn if they win out. They've already beat 2 ranked have 2 ranked left to play and if they get to and win the SEC Championship that would be another ranked win. Mississippi St. is flirting with the top 25 now and Auburn beat them too.

Oregon vs. Auburn in the NC would be a nice matchup.

FIFY.. This is what the rankings SHOULD be, but OU will get no better than fourth since BS and O are the darlings of the poll-meisters..


1. Oklahoma (Beaten more ranked teams than anyone else undefeated)
2. TCU (Great defense, and will beat whomever they play in a bowl)
3. Auburn (Good team, but not much of a defense)
4. Utah
5. Oregon (pffft..)
6. Boise St. (pretenders)

The best of the rest....

7. Michigan State (Big Ten. PFFFT!!! PFFFT!)
8. LSU (due to lose one very soon)
9. Nebraska (one dimensional offense bit 'em in the arse)
10. Alabama (oh, the great SEC.. NOT)

Theyre the darlings because they are clearly better than this average OU squad. On your top six I'd put them at #6 and call them the real pretenders....

I do think Oregon will lose one in the regular season, but as of right now they'll probably be #1 considering their standing in the polls now. Boise and TCU also slide up a spot, both are solid teams who I think could handle well in better conferences. If either was in the ACC or Big East, nobody would complain as much.

Auburn may or may not leapfrog Oklahoma. There is a huge SEC bias, and them beating SC - who just beat Alabama - could help. The two will end up 4 and 5.

I think Michigan State will skyrocket now being the top team in the Big 10. I think they could get to 7, considering the big losses this week.

LSU is still running on luck, their time is to come. I honestly don't know much about the Utes, but they're looking at another solid year so far. Alabama will still get love, and should be ahead of LSU and Ohio State. If Nebraska is above 12 I'd be surprised.

For the first time in our history, the Ducks are ranked #1 in the nation! Coaches and AP polls are out. Boise State is ranked 2, followed by the Sooners.

Top 25: Oregon slides up to No. 1; Boise State, Oklahoma follow - USATODAY.com

BCS will come out later. I have a feeling either BSu or OU will be ranked ahead of us, but all we can do is continue to do our thing and let things play out.

Go Ducks!

Yikes! Don't say that. That was the last time Oregon was in the hunt for the NC, then poor old Dennis Dixon went down. Man, we would have rolled LSU that year. Oh the memories...
