The Saturday week 7 college football scores are going to rock the first 2010 BCS rankings. We are calling this upset Saturday, as several top ranked teas fell, including teams within the top 10 rankings. That is going to really hurt them when the first 2010 BCS rankings of the season come out on Sunday. In one of the more important weeks of the college football schedule when it comes to impressing voters some key teams simply weren’t up to the challenge. This will shift the entire landscape of the 2010 college football season, as several teams hoping for a great BCS bowl game might have just taken a death blow.
The Texas vs. Nebraska game didn’t go as planned for the No. 5 ranked Cornhuskers, as they fell 20-13 to a Texas team that is working hard just to get back into the top 25. No. 10 South Carolina also lost this weekend, falling to SEC rival Kentucky in the fourth quarter 29-28. No. 12 Arkansas also lost, but at least they lost to a great Auburn team that will be moving up in the rankings thanks to this game and their now 7-0 record in 2010. Iowa beat Michigan to basically eliminate Michigan from winning the Big Ten Conference, and that should clear the way for Michigan State to be receiving a lot more support when it comes to emerging from the Big Ten undefeated.
This doesn’t even mention the Ohio State vs. Wisconsin game, where Wisconsin jumped out to a 21-0 lead. Midway through the fourth quarter of that game, it was still Wisconsin leading 21-10. We will update you on how that game turns out, but it could really harm how people view this Ohio State team for the rest of the season. With their rough game, Nebraska and South Carolina losing, and Arkansas playing themselves out of the top rankings, there is definitely going to be a real shake up in all the college football rankings on Sunday. We fully expect Michigan State to finally make it back into the top 10 for the first time in 2010, for Auburn to move into the top five for the first time in 2010, and for that undefeated Utah team to suddenly start getting even more recognition. Oh and don’t sleep on the undefeated Missouri Tigers either, who are now 6-0 in the Big 12 Conference.
