BCS Rankings time is so much fun. Why aren't there playoffs?

That thought is out there now, but it is not going to be discussed here because sadly we are simply stuck with the inevitable bowl season.

The newest BCS Rankings, when released, mean some teams will get pushed out the door.

Here are three teams that are unlikely to hold onto a rank.


Texas had it handed to them last weekend against Oklahoma.

The rivalry was not the heated matchup that many expected. Instead, it appeared to be more of a showcase where Oklahoma enjoyed rolling over the Longhorns.

Now, Texas is up against Oklahoma State who is almost as good as Oklahoma. What does this mean?

It means two straight losses to strong competition, and if Florida can get knocked from their ranking after losing to even better competition, you can be sure as hell that Texas will be booted from the party after this weekend.

Arizona State

Arizona State is a team with some quality.

They have an outstanding defense and a quarterback that is among the best in college football—Brock Osweiler.

Arizona State, however, is coming across a very good Oregon team that will dismantle them and point out all of their flaws—like a teenage boy going through pimple-filled puberty.

I am sorry to say this but their ranking, just like Texas, is more than likely going to be stripped away.

They are not in a position where they can fall that much, and there is a lot of talent surrounding them just begging to move ahead.


The reigning national champions are not having as good of a campaign as the team they beat: Oregon.

Oregon is moving up each week, where as Auburn is very much stagnant.

Auburn faces a Florida Gators team that is coming off of two of the hardest games in college football this season.

They are now ready to right the storm and will do it against Auburn.

When Florida hands Auburn their third loss of the season, they will inevitably knock Auburn out of the rankings and into a position where they cannot get back in.
