Week 8 NCAA football scores ended with Missouri beating Oklahoma. These week 8 NCAA football scores alter the 2010 BCS rankings, but we will have to wait until Sunday night to find out just how much. Oklahoma became the second team in the top 10 to fall on Saturday, with the first being LSU as they lost to No. 4 Auburn. Now the college football world is going to see a new No. 1 team in the 2010 BCS rankings, and the analysts are left to debate which team it is going to be.
The two biggest scores of the night were Missouri 36 – Oklahoma 27 and Auburn 24 – LSU 17. Those scores are going to really propel Missouri and Auburn, which both continue their undefeated runs in the 2010 college football season. The only other undefeated teams left in the nation are Oregon, Boise State, TCU, Michigan State, and Utah. This could get very interesting, and the worlds of both TCU and Boise State just got a bit better with another big conference school falling hard from the polls.
How will this play out in the 2010 BCS rankings Sunday night? It is assume that Oregon will be the new No. 1 team there, unless Auburn gets a huge boost in the strength of schedule and finds favor with the computer rankings. Where will Michigan State and Missouri end up after impressive wins? And will they both stay ahead of Alabama and LSU in the newest BCS rankings, or is there going to be something within the Top 25 AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll that continues to frustrate some of the schools out there? More chaos is definitely coming, and you can take that to the bank. According to the ESPN scoreboard, LSU and Oklahoma weren’t the only ranked teams to fall though.
No. 15 Iowa lost at home to Wisconsin, No. 14 Oklahoma State lost at home to Nebraska, No. 19 Texas lost at home to Iowa State, No. 20 West Virginia lost at home to Syracuse, and No. 22 Kansas State lost on the road to Baylor. Those were just some of the games that are going to shake up the week 9 college football rankings when they come out. Add LSU and Oklahoma to that list of ranked teams losing, and we could see quite a different top 25 in not just the BCS, but the Coaches, AP, and Harris Polls when they come out on Sunday morning. The top of the rankings are really starting to thin out the undefeated teams, and nobody predicted that it would be Michigan State and Missouri holding all the respect from the Big 12 and Big Ten at this point.
