Welcome to the first revealing of the Bowl Championship Series standings. It’s a confusing process, filled with different polls coming up with a formula to determine where the best teams in college football rank. 

There has been a lot of speculation as to who should be at No. 1. In the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Oklahoma Sooners are No. 1. 

But, if you ask who the BCS experts are predicting at No. 1, it’s between No. 2 LSU Tigers and No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide. 

If it sounds confusing as to why the No. 1 team in the country will not be one of the top two teams when the rankings are announced in a couple of hours, well let me tell you that you’re not alone. 

So stick around—won’t you?—as we will be keeping you updated up to and through the teams being announced. And then through the early fallout afterward.

Stick around, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
