We do not have to wait much longer for the first revealing of the 2013 BCS Rankings, with the Alabama Crimson Tide and Ohio State head and shoulders above the rest of the country in terms of the polls already out this season. While the Crimson Tide have at least faced one difficult opponent, the Buckeyes may not face a true top team until potentially playing in the BCS Championship Game. Keep in mind it is not because I believe they are one of the two most deserving teams, but due to their incredibly weak schedule both in and out of the Big 10 Conference, I see Ohio State finishing the season undefeated and winning the conference title game, thus likely placing them in the BCS Championship Game.
But, I am getting ahead of myself. We are still only four weeks into the 2013 College Football season, and the first BCS Rankings have yet to be released. The AP and Coaches Poll will reflect a few changes following this past weekend’s games, as they should. We learned quite a bit more of certain teams on Saturday, even the ones who won. While the Michigan Wolverines may still be undefeated, eeking out victories over the Akron Zips and Connecticut Huskies is hardly impressive. I expect Big Blue to drop in the rankings once again.
