You know things are really starting to heat up in college football when the first BCS polls are released. This is the time of the year where we start to see who the contenders and the pretenders are.
The AP poll and the coaches poll are nice, but the BCS is the final word in college football and will ultimately select the national champion come season's end.
With the release of the first BCS standings, each program will know where it stands and what it will need to do over the next few months to attain whatever goals it's looking to achieve.
Considering how impatient and desperate we all are for nonstop football, we'd be much better off just trying to predict what will happen in the rest of this crazy season. I mean who has time to wait anyway?
