As college fans eagerly await the release of the official BCS Rankings for Week 9, we continue to observe the AP Poll in the hopes that it is a sign of what's to come in the evening once the official rankings are released. In this week's AP Poll, some expected and unexpected developments have occurred. And with these developments come the winners and the losers of the results.
Despite the now unofficial AP Polls, they are a sign that indicate and give a pretty good idea of where teams now stand in Week 9. And with only four more weeks to go this season, the rankings are becoming a big factor in how the BCS Bowl bids will be divided among the top tier teams who still have the nerve to be in contention for college football's biggest stages.
