The week 9 college football scores could be pretty telling, and the next BCS standings could hinge on how these results turn out. All of the best undefeated teams playing on Saturday are on the road, meaning that upsets are definitely possible. Whether that turns out to be the case or not will be determined by Saturday night, but several of the games are very interesting.
Boise State already won their game this week, playing Tuesday against Louisiana Tech and beating them 49-20 in the conference match-up. No. 16 Florida State played on Thursday night, but they came up short against North Carolina State, possibly putting the Wolfpack back into the top 25 by the end of the weekend. It could also cost Florida State their spot in the polls unless the voters like their body of work up to this point.
Games start early on Saturday, and great football is going to be across the major networks from dawn till dusk.
(UPDATE) — Upsets are already taking place, with No. 22 Miami losing to Virginia, and No. 5 Michigan State getting absolutely blasted by No. 18 Iowa. The top 25 will see an immediate shake-up from the Michigan State vs. Iowa game, and now the Big Ten Conference is going to wide open once again. Michigan State has now been removed from the ranks of the unbeaten teams.
Over in Nebraska, the No. 6 Missouri team was also having a rough day, falling behind 24-0 after the first quarter of play. Missouri is one of the other undefeated teams left in the 2010 BCS standings, and they are the final team at the top of the Big 12 Conference standings. Having them knocked off would really make the end of the Big 12 season extremely competitive.
There are several other games on Saturday that are going to affect the week 10 BCS standings when they come out on Sunday night, but if Michigan State and Missouri both lose, it is going to make things much more interesting for fans of one loss Alabama. Could this push Alabama up into the top 5 when the newest BCS rankings come out?
