BCS Rankings: Georgia Tech and Teams That Will Crack Top 25
BCS Rankings come out on Sunday night and there will be a few new faces that weren’t there last week. Here are three teams that will crack the top 25.
Washington has two losses this season—at Stanford and at Nebraska. They have defeated every other opponent on their schedule, and now that Stanford continues to be undefeated and Nebraska continues to still have one hiccup, Washington deserves to be in the top 25.
If they can get their defense turned around, which is unlikely because they allow 33 points per game, 103rd in the nation, they would be tough to beat for the rest of the campaign. In their two losses, Washington has given up 65 points and 51, respectively. They aren't going to win too many games given up 50 points or more.
Keith Price is having a great sophomore campaign throwing for 23 touchdowns to eight interceptions. Chris Polk has 1,016 yards and nine touchdowns on the season.
The Huskies are a team that deserves to be in the rankings.
Teams rarely move down in the standings on their bye week. Cincinnati didn’t play this weekend and they should benefit from that.
The Bearcats are 6-1, and are coming off a victory at South Florida on Oct. 22.
Zach Collaros and Isaiah Pead lead the 10th best offensive attack in the nation. Collaros has thrown for 1,576 yards and 14 touchdowns while Pead has rushed for 703 yards and eight touchdowns.
Cincinnati will get a minor test at Heinz Field this Saturday when they play the Pittsburgh Panthers.
The Yellow Jackets were ousted from the BCS Rankings with their second-straight loss of the season. However, with their decisive 14-point victory over Clemson, the Yellow Jackets will be right back in the top 25 come Sunday night.
Georgia Tech has the second best rushing attack in college football at 328 yards per game. When they come up against teams that can limit them on the ground that is when the Yellow Jackets struggle see—Virginia and Miami.
Throwing the football is not Georgia Tech’s forte (110th), but if teams can’t slow down their triple-option attack, they don’t need to worry about throwing it. Clemson couldn’t on Saturday and that is why Georgia Tech will be back in the rankings.
