BCS Buster Power Rankings: Week 6

We’ve known all along that the only way a BCS Buster could possibly find itself playing for the national championship is if some chaos erupted in the power conferences. With just three teams ahead of them, Boise State and TCU have been hovering in the top five all season long — playing out as tough a schedule as they can get and waiting for the big boys ahead of them to succumb to conference cannibalism.

BCS Buster Power Rankings: Week 5

All four of the teams with their shot at busting into the BCS are still alive in the race after winning over the weekend. Now is the time when it all comes down to nuance.

BCS Buster Power Rankings: Week 3

After three weeks we’re already down to just a half-dozen non-AQ schools with a real shot at taking down the establishment and busting their way into the BCS. The predominance of teams from the WAC and Mountain West — especially the latter, given that all three of the WAC teams listed in this week’s Power Rankings are moving to the MWC — testifies to the real depth of football talent out west. Two more of their schools also... Read More
