A&M got slightly shafted in the polls. they should have moved up more, at least past Oklahoma and Stanford. Besides LSU I think A&M is the best two-loss team in the nation, and probably better than some one-loss teams like Oregan St.
Alabama’s last-minute win at LSU on Saturday kept the Tide on top of the BCS standings this week. No wonder, Bama literally made their final touchdown drive look as easy as could be… as if they’d simply been waiting for someone to flip their offensive switch to the “on” position.
As we showed you last week, the BCS Championship Game representatives are likely already in the top four of the standings. Those top four teams remain the same this week:
2. Kansas State
3. Oregon — up one from last week
4. Notre Dame — leap-frogged by the Ducks
From there, four more SEC squads have shuffled around a bit:
5. Georgia — up one from last week
6. Florida — up one from last week
7. LSU — down two from last week following the loss to Bama
8. South Carolina
Elsewhere, Texas A&M moved from #16 to #15. That slot was vacated by Mississippi State — pounded by A&M on Saturday — who fell all the way from #15 to #21.
Alabama’s offense was tested Saturday in Baton Rouge. This week, Johnny Manziel and the Aggies will give Nick Saban’s defense a greater test. A&M will be fired up. Will Bama suffer a letdown following its emotional win at LSU?
