Dustin JohnsonCorrespondent IOctober 26, 2008

Alright fans of the underdogs here's the skinny after Week Nine of the CFB season. The following teams in the BCS standings lost today. Note that current BCS rank is in parenthesis.

Texas beat Oklahoma St.(6), Penn St. took down Ohio St.(9), Georgia knocked off LSU(13), South Florida(16) was upset by Louisville, Pittsburgh(17) was taken down by Rutgers, and Georgia Tech(18) was upset by Virgina. So what does this mean for our six BCS busting hopefuls? Scroll down to find out.

The Utes had a bye this week but with the losses by Oklahoma St. and Ohio St. Utah should move into the BCS top ten. Next week they will face New Mexico on the road.

After beating San Jose St. on Friday night the Broncos should be in the same boat as Utah. Floating up the river to the top ten. Upcoming for Boise is a battle at New Mexico St.

TCU routed Wyoming this week and with the loss by LSU should be moving up to 11th or 12th. Next week the Frogs will be in the city of lights to play UNLV.

Tulsa still needs to beat UCF Sunday night to move up. If they do the Hurricanes will easily move up to around 15th. Next week is a tough test at Arkansas for Tulsa.

Ball St. ran past Eastern Michigan and should plant themselves somewhere around 16th or 17th. Next Saturday they face off against Northern Illinois at home.

The Cougs used a late 4th quarter touchdown to beat UNLV at home. They should continue moving up in the BCS and land right behind Ball St. Upcoming is a showdown at Colorado State.

With six teams still in the running (four of which could end up undefeated) does anyone think this could be the year of multiple BCS busters?
