week down, another step closer to the bowl season. Week eight was a
metaphorical bulldozer, clearing the rubbish of teams like Louisville, LSU and
Clemson from the road to the BCS National Championship. At the same time, week
eight was a trampoline for Florida State, who jumped Oregon on itsway to
the No. 2 spot in the BCS rankings and for Miami, Missouri and Baylor who all
now find themselves in the top 10.
week nine hold the same fate? It doesn't appear that five top ten teams could
lose again, but there are four matchups of top ten teams against ranked
opponents. Then again, the BCS rankings tend to encourage teams to not only
win, but win with "style points," so look for some potentially big
numbers on scoreboards across the country this week.
tonight, here's what you can look forward to:
at Mississippi State, 4:30 p.m. PT/7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
