BCS Rankings: Oklahoma State Left In Third Place After LSU-Alabama

Even though LSU and Alabama have already played once this year in what turned out to be a fall training camp for kickers, the powers-that-be have determined that America wants to see them play again for all of the marbles.

It was something you could possibly predict yet it was hard not to root for the Oklahoma State Cowboys this weekend in their quest to subvert the BCS, which apparently means "Bowl Championship for the SEC." Even though LSU and Alabama have already played once this year in what turned out to be a fall training camp for kickers, the powers-that-be have determined that America wants to see them play again for all of the marbles. It's a good thing that OSU didn't beat five other teams ranked in the BCS or anything.
