The 2010 initial BCS rankings were released Sunday and the Oklahoma Sooners made somewhat of a surprise debut at #1. OU has been number 1 in the BCS standings more than any other team since the BCS formed in the late 90's.
If you take a look at the teams ranked number 2-6 there would be redemption on the Sooners' mind in every possible match up.
The Sooners have the desire for retribution against four of the top six and the other team Auburn, ranked fourth, would be seeking redemption for the 2004 season where they were left out of the BCS championship in lieu of the Sooners and USC Trojans.
In two weeks most of these scenarios will look much less likely. The Sooners themselves are no lock to make it to the BCS Championship due to inconsistency and two road games against currently undefeated teams.
Then they have a trip to College Station and a Big 12 championship game to get through; however, with that said, let us start counting chickens before they hatch.
