ESPN college football scores from week 8 have been anything but boring. The 2010 season presented some ESPN college football scores on Saturday, Oct. 23 that will definitely shake up the newest week 9 BCS standings when they come out on the night of Sunday, Oct. 24. Among those shifts will be LSU likely falling out of the top 10, Michigan State moving up, and a host of teams swapping slots in the bottom end of the top 25 college football rankings.
How will the Big 12 Conference look at this time next week though? Because several teams, like Oklahoma State and Missouri, have slid of the radar in recent weeks, they could have made a big impact with wins on Saturday. At least Michigan State is finally getting some respect from the voters, finally moving them above Alabama, a team that has already lost one game in 2010. Boise State has their bye week this time around, giving them a week off, but it could continue to hurt their standing in the rankings. TCU also has a tough game against an Air Force team that has upset up their minds.
Games will continue all through Saturday, and quite a few of them will have a direct impact on how the week 9 BCS standings shake out on Sunday. The Oklahoma State vs. Nebraska could directly affect the strength of schedule for their opponents later in 2010, as could the Wisconsin vs. Iowa game, with both games having ranked teams on both sides of the ball.
One thing is very clear, and it is that the college football landscape is going to look completely different in both the Big 12 and the SEC when the dust settles on their new standings. Will we see several new teams join the top 10 in the week 9 BCS standings? Will we possibly see a new No. 1 in these updated BCS standings? Anything is possible at this point.
