October is a great month for college football. Well, every month is a great month for college football.
October is especially great because it is when the meaningful games are finally played. No more games against the East Manchester Fighting Giraffes.
It is games against your hated rivals. October is when the real BCS contenders get separated from the pretenders.
On Sunday, the first BCS rankings of the 2012 college football season will be revealed on ESPN. Some fans will undoubtedly be upset, and others will be quite pleased.
Could we be headed for yet another SEC vs. SEC showdown in the BCS championship game in Miami? Or is this the year that the Oregon Ducks or the Notre Dame Fighting Irish finally put a flag on top of the BCS Championship mountain?
Week 1 in October was already full of crazy games and upsets (come on, Florida State. How are you going to lose to N.C. State?). Some teams also showed that they plan on being involved in the BCS talk all the way until the end.
Our friends at bcsknowhow.com published their simulated rankings on Monday.
Which of the Top 10 in the simulation will still be standing after taking their opponents' best punches in the month of October?
