Inaugural BCS Poll Has Alabama Second
Alabama was second to Texas (which jumped into the first spot after defeating previously number one ranked Oklahoma two weeks ago) with Penn State third, Oklahoma fourth, USC fifth, Oklahoma State sixth, Georgia seventh, Texas Tech eighth, Ohio State ninth and Florida 10th.
The BCS poll is derived from the rankings of the Harris Interactive poll, the USA Today poll of coaches, and six computer rankings which are averaged into one component.
Although the Associated Press pulled its poll out of BCS calculations, the AP poll is generally in line with the others.
Texas ranked number one in all three components and Alabama was second in all three. Penn State was third in the two subjective polls, but was seventh in the computer rankings.
Alabama is 7-0. Bama goes to Tennessee Saturday. Kickoff in Neyland Stadium will be at 7:45 p.m. EDT (6:45 central time) with national television coverage by CBS.
