Both ratings concurred that Miami, Ohio State, Virginia Tech and Florida State should round out the Top Five behind the No. 1 Sooners. Other Big 12 schools listed this week include college footballs most overrated team: Nebraska. From a BCS strength-of-schedule perspective, its good that the Children of the Corn check in at a lofty No. 7 (Coaches) while No. 10 in the AP poll consisting of select sports writers and broadcasters.
Kansas State tumbled to No. 21 (Coaches) and No. 22 (AP). Losers of two straight, the Cats will look to rebound against No.29/30 Oklahoma State. For those who are counting, Texas Tech is on the cusp of national recognition by getting enough votes to finish No. 28 (AP) and No. 29 (Coaches). The high-flying Red Raiders could have named the score in shellacking the Aggies in Lubbock, but pulled starting QB B.J. Symons early in the fourth quarter after lighting up the scoreboard to the tune of 59 points.
What? No votes for Baylor?
