however I’ve NEVER been called a BCS professional. In all honesty, simply who would WANT to be known as one? That being stated, we’re caught with the BCS determining university soccer’s country wide name sport matchup and the general public are a touch frightened nowadays, as nearly EVERYONE is looking ahead to a Texas/USC or USC/Texas (whichever way you decide on) showdown on this year’s Visit :- UFABET
The first BCS standings had been released on October 17 and there were rumors that while USC would be No. 1, consensus No. 2 in the polls Texas, should locate itself at the back of Va Tech within the standings. Those fears were unfounded, as USC and Texas were a stable one-two in the first BCS standings. I pause right here for a moment to remind all people that because the BCS’ inception in 1998, the 2 teams ranked first and 2d in the preliminary standings of the 12 months, have NEVER met within the BCS’ season-ending identify recreation!
Moving on, the second BCS standings were released this beyond Monday. In rather of a wonder, USC fell to No. 2 with Texas moving as much as the primary spot. The margin of .0007, was the nearest-ever between the primary spots inside the standings records. USC owns the nation’s longest prevailing streak at 29 video games (Texas has the second one-quality streak at simply 14!), has been ranked No. 1 inside the AP poll for 26 consecutive polls (an all-time record) and is the two-time defending national champion but now unearths itself at No. 2!
For USC lovers, it is now not as bad as is sounds. USC is conveniently ahead of No. Three Va Tech and take into account, No. 2 is simply as right as No. 1 on this ‘game’, as they each improve to the Rose Bowl. Actually, Texas, which has no more ranked groups on its final schedule, is in extra hazard of falling out of one the pinnacle two spots than USC. The Trojans nonetheless have Cal (No. 23 in the BCS), Fresno State (unranked in the BCS but twenty second in the AP and 24 in the coaches’ ballot ) and UCLA (No. 9 inside the BCS) on their schedule.
Currently, Va Tech is in the “dreaded” No. 3 spot (see USC in 2003 and Auburn in 2004). However, the Hokies play Boston College (BCS No. 12) Thursday night time plus nevertheless have Miami-Fl (No. 8 in the BCS) and a likely ACC name-sport showdown on faucet with Florida State on December three (No. Eleven inside the BCS), to enhance their computer rankings. Currently, there are SIX unbeatens last in college football and it is possible that the yr ought to quit with as many as four.
Either USC or UCLA has to lose when those teams meet on December 3 and assuming Georgia and Alabama had been to stay unbeaten thru the quit of the ordinary season, the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide would meet inside the SEC identify sport, losing one or the other from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Speaking of unbeatens, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, UCLA, USC and Va Tech are all 7-0. However, most effective Texas is a really perfect 7-zero ATS. The groups combined ATS mark is 26-16, or 61.9 percent. At the opposite quit of the spectrum, FOUR Division I-A schools input this weekend’s movement winless. The listing includes Buffalo (zero-7), New Mexico State (zero-7), Rice (zero-6) and Temple (zero-8). Of those 4, simplest Rice, at 0-6 ATS, is also winless towards the factors! The blended ATS mark of the four winless faculties is 11-17 or 39.Three percent.
Here’s an exciting truth. You have regularly heard me and others refer to the pointspread as the “first-rate equalizer.” Here’s why? The six unbeatens clearly have a winning percentage of one.000 and the four winless groups clearly are at .000. However, you may note that while you examine the two companies’ SU winning percentage versus their ATS chances, right here’s what you get. The unbeatens’ ATS percent is .619, a distinction of .381. As for the winless teams. The difference between their SU and ATS prevailing percent is .393. Pretty darn near!
Before leaving this discussion of unbeatens and winless groups, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out both Duke and Purdue (although I’m certain the ones colleges might as a substitute I failed to!). While Texas is the state’s ONLY ideal ATS faculty, Rice isn’t always the state’s simplest winless ATS school. Joining the Owls are Duke and Purdue. The Blue Devils are 1-7 SU but 0-7 ATS, beating handiest VMI in a non-covered sport. As for the Boilermakers, they’re 2-five SU however zero-7 ATS, as they received however did no longer cowl in opposition to Akron and Arizona to open the 12 months, earlier than losing their final five games both SU and ATS!
