The college football rankings 2010 for Week 10 should have the same No. 1. Of course, the college football rankings 2010 during Week 10 will likely have two different No. 1 teams, like last week. Oregon has control of the AP and USA TODAY polls, while Auburn is ahead in the BCS standings. Both teams did nothing to forfeit those positions yesterday, with Oregon maintaining their lead in the USA TODAY poll. However, the Week 10 college football rankings in the human polls may move Auburn up a bit, while punishing Boise State.
In the USA TODAY poll, Oregon was the first team in a while to stay No. 1 for a second straight week. But there was a change right behind them, as Auburn made a move up to No. 2. They were No. 3 in the human standings, despite leading the BCS.
Now, the college football rankings 2010 in Week 10 might have Oregon and Auburn at 1-2 in the human polls as well. Auburn was elevated to No. 2 in the USA TODAY, and could have the same luck in the AP as well.
If that happens, then it would be a damaging blow to Boise State. The Broncos are already projected to fall behind TCU in the BCS standings, and have now fallen to third in the coaches poll. After today’s polls come out, TCU could be favored as the mid-major’s best shot at a title game berth.
At the least, the college football rankings 2010 for Week 10 kept the Broncos ahead of the Horned Frogs in the USA TODAY. Alabama rounded out the top 5, as they moved up despite being off yesterday. Utah, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Nebraska are the next five, with Michigan State and Missouri sliding out of contention.
LSU is 11’th, in preparation for their showdown with Alabama this Saturday. Missouri and Michigan State are down to 14’th and 15’th, although the Spartans are actually still ahead of Iowa. Nevada and North Carolina State moved back in at 23’rd and 25’th, with Miami and Michigan dropping out.
For the first time this month, the same two teams are leading the polls for two straight weeks. The college football rankings are in Auburn and Oregon’s control going into Week 10. However, it is more unclear who would succeed them if they lose, as TCU and Boise State could be going in opposite directions, and Alabama may just control their destiny.
Auburn and Oregon restored some order in the polls, even as the order behind them changed. But the college football rankings 2010 stand to change behind them again in Week 10, with games like TCU vs Utah, and Alabama vs LSU.
