TEC's College Football Top 10, Week 7

Like a lot of people, I'm somewhat apathetic to the BCS because the process seems to work as intended only every other season. However much is arguable at this point, your humble purveyor has no issue with keeping Oklahoma in the top spot with the best of the Southeastern Conference trailing just inches behind. The Alabama/LSU showdown on November 5 will resolve most questions. Until then, most other teams can expect to remain on the outside looking in.

Michigan fall out of the top 10, as the Wolverines lost to Michigan State for the fourth consecutive season. They are replaced by Oregon, who after their opening week loss to LSU, have won five straight by an average margin of 33 points per game. The Ducks are possibly better than their ranking. But similar to Boise State, their strength of schedule will likely hinder them from here on out.

1. Oklahoma (def. Kansas, 47-17), 6-0, 630 pts.
t-2. Alabama (def. Ole Miss, 52-7), 7-0, 620 pts.
t-2. Louisiana State (def. Tennessee, 38-7), 7-0, 620 pts.
4. Stanford (def. Washington State, 44-14), 6-0, 560 pts.
5. Wisconsin (def. Indiana, 59-7), 6-0, 555 pts.
6. Boise State (def. Colorado, 63-13), 6-0, 505 pts.
7. Oklahoma State (def. Texas, 38-26), 6-0, 445 pts.
8. Clemson (def. Maryland, 56-45), 7-0, 390 pts.
9. Arkansas (Bye), 6-0, 345 pts.
10. Oregon (def. Arizona State, 41-27), 5-1, 330 pts.
