With TCU trouncing Utah on the road, the BCS suddenly has a little bit of a shake-up.

Here's our thoughts on who should be the BCS Top 25...

  1. Oregon—Stuttered early against Washington, then blew the Huskies out of the water. 
  2. Auburn—Beating Chatanooga, here's the sound of no hands clapping.
  3. TCU—Quite possibly the best performance of the day in a College Gameday crushing of the Utes
  4. Boise State—Hammered an outsider in Hawaii in a game that many thought would be close. It would be a bummer to see neither TCU or Boise State getting in the NT game, but how good would it be seeing them play each other again?
  5. LSU—Victory over Alabama included obligatory balls-to-the-wall fourth quarter play, which worked.
  6. Nebraska—How bad does the loss to Texas look now?
  7. Wisconsin—Road victory over Purdue wasn't as graceful as it was functional. Bet they hate that loss to Michigan State even more....
  8. Michigan State—If all goes well, Michigan State might go to the Rose Bowl
  9. Ohio State—Unconvincing this week. Probably because they didn't play.
  10. Stanford—Tremendous victory over Arizona puts them in Rose Bowl...practically
  11. Utah—The loss to TCU in itself hurt. But the loss by 47 points really, really hurt.
  12. Iowa—Not great against Indiana, but a win's a win (or is that Big Ten bias, folks?)
  13. Oklahoma State—The pummeling of Baylor puts the Pokes in Big XII South contention
  14. Alabama–Loss to LSU trainwrecked their hopes of winning a SEC West or National Title.
  15. Virginia Tech—Another ACC. The Hokies remain the team to beat in the ACC. 
  16. Arkansas—Superb performance at South Carolina, without Greg Childs, shows a worrying lack of parity between the SEC East and SEC West.
  17. Missouri—Ugly loss to Texas Tech gives the Tigers two losses in a row.
  18. Mississippi State—Didn't play this week, but at least we can make fun of cross-town Ole Miss and Brett Favre.
  19. Texas A&M—Tremendous victory against Oklahoma made you realise why night games at Kyle Field are so special.
  20. Oklahoma—Loss to Texas A&M, despite a spirited comeback late on, underlined how poor the Big 12 is this year
  21. Nevada—Offense kept on purring against Idaho.
  22. Florida—Hammered a poor Vanderbilt side. So what?
  23. UCF—Nice victory over Houston.
  24. Miami—This Stephon Morris kid's good, kids. Jacory Harris should be worried.
  25. Penn State—Win No. 400 for Joe Paterno gets a ranking from us. Illinois may not look so bad after all...
