FBS Rankings as of October 17, 2011

Well, the first BCS standings were published, and I have to say that I approve: they look remarkably like my rankings. As a matter of fact, the only difference in the top 8 is at the #5-#6 positions, where we have Wisconsin and Boise State switched. There are still 10 undefeated teams; last year at this time there were also 10 undefeated teams. Those that fell the furthest this week include Michigan, Georgia Tech and Illinois. Fast climbers include Michigan State and Texas A&M.
