College football rankings: BCS computer has Kansas State, Notre Dame at the top

Jamie Squire

Full BCS rankings won't come out until 8:30 p.m. ET, but we can start to piece them together based on the six computer ratings and two polls. The first out is Jeff Sagarin's.

The first BCS rankings component to be released for Week 10 is Jeff Sagarin's Elo Chess system, which is a version of his normal rankings that doesn't use margin of victory as a factor. Kansas State again does very well in the computers, with Notre Dame next up among unbeaten teams.

Florida, LSU, Oklahoma and Georgia all have quality losses, ranking them ahead of perfect Alabama and Oregon. This is what happens when you're forced to completely disregard how good each team has looked in its wins or losses.

Check Sagarin's multiple rankings systems here, and here is his BCS Top 25:

  1. Kansas State
  2. Notre Dame
  3. Florida
  4. LSU
  5. Oklahoma
  6. Georgia
  7. Alabama
  8. Oregon
  9. South Carolina
  10. Texas Tech
  11. Ohio State
  12. Oregon State
  13. Stanford
  14. West Virginia
  15. Arizona
  16. Texas A&M
  17. Texas
  18. Washington
  19. USC
  20. Nebraska
  21. Iowa State
  22. Mississippi State
