4) Boise State
5) Ohio State
9) Penn State
10) Virginia Tech
Well lookie here. Three BigTen teams in the top 10. Weak division for sure.
Props all around, but special props to these teams.
Props to Bama for beating a wounded Longhorns squad. Not saying they wouldn't have won anyway, because they certainly played prevent-defense for the second half of the game. (They seemed to only turn it back on again in the last few minutes.)
Props to Boise State for going 14-0. UnProps to the BCS for making Boise State play another non-BCS conference team.
Props to Iowa for ending in the top ten after starting unranked.
