Top 10 BCS Standings & Bowl Game Predictions 4.0
One week after we were treated to a match up of the #1 vs #2 team’s in the country, we were treated to a #4 vs #7 match up this week between PAC-12 rivals, Stanford and Oregon. Stanford possesses the best QB in the country in Andrew Luck and Oregon possesses one of the top RB’s in the country in LaMichael James. Two high powered offenses would make for a close high scoring slugfest, correct? That wasn’t the case, as Oregon pulled off the upset defeating Stanford, 53-30. James ran for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns and Luck threw for 239 yards, and threw 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, one was brought back for a pick six. To go with #4 Stanford being upset, #5 Boise State was upset as well, at home against conference rival TCU, 36-35, after missing a potential game winning field goal as time expired. So with the #’s 4 and 5 teams in the nation falling, my top 10 BCS standings and bowl predictions will gear up for a big shake up.
