Week One Simulated BCS Standings Has Alabama Vs. Boise State In The BCS Title Game

SB Nation's own BCS Evolution is compiling the available data to present a simulated BCS rankings for the first week of the season. Currently only half of the computer rankings are available with the highest and lowest scores still being dropped, also the harris poll is not available until later in the year. 

So far here is how the top five look like with the surprise of Boise State currently in position to play for the BCS title game against Alabama:

The early computer rankings to no surprise like Boise State due to their win over another highly ranked team in Virginia Tech who come in at eleven in this simulated standings.  

One thing BCS Evolution mentions about these rankings is to watch for clusters:

The first cluster of teams represents the main stream NCG race. This was in three clusters last week, and some shuffling occurred among them. There is almost a break between the top three and #4-6.

The second cluster was also two clusters last week. There is almost a break between Oklahoma and Virginia Tech marking the old gap representing those with a fair shot at the NCG from those needing a 2007 like mix-up to get an shot. Notably, Virginia Tech fell from the former to the later.

The final group separates consensus top 25 teams from the field. North Carolina, Oregon State and Cincinnati have been removed from this list.

As one can tell it is still very early and with not all the data represented these standings will vary each week until all the data is available, but it is sure fun to speculate who will finish where.
