Some are fuming over the selection of Oklahoma for the first position when Oregon has been on the top in other rankings such as the one conducted by Associated Press. The cause is being attributed to computer generated rankings.
BCS rankings were released on Sunday night on ESPN. Oklahoma have remained undefeated in their last six games and have defeated Utah state, Florida state, Air Force, Cincinnati, Texas and Iowa state in a straight line so far. In the NCAA College Football Rankings week 8, Oklahoma is on number three with the first position being occupied by Oregon. LSU is on number six position in both the BCS rankings and the Associated Press media poll.
