|1||11-0||-||Bye Week. Up Next: Auburn Tigers – Buy Tickets|
|2||10-1||1||The Gators can thank the Oklahoma Sooners for opening up the window for them. The Gators needed one of the top 2 teams to lose in order for them to be eligible for a National Championship berth. The Gators need to avoid a slip up of their own as they play in state rival Florida State next week. Up Next: Florida State Seminoles – Buy Tickets|
|3||10-1||2||I think the Big 12 South is going to have a lot of unhappy teams when the Bowl schedules are released. The Sooners dealt the Red Raiders their first loss of the season winning handily in Norman this week. Up Next: Oklahoma State Cowboys – Buy Tickets|
|4||10-1||-||Bye Week. Up Next: Texas A&M Aggies – Buy Tickets|
|5||11-1||2||Huge win for the Nittany Lions this week as they hammered the Spartans and earned themselves a Rose Bowl berth. Oh ya and JoePa is returning for yet another season, all is good for Lions. Up Next: N/A|
|6||10-1||4||With the embarrassing loss to Oklahoma this week, where does this leave the Red Raiders? It is hard to say if they will be playing in a BCS Bowl game, it is likely they will have a share of the Big 12 South however. Up Next: Baylor Bears – Buy Tickets|
Bye Week. Up Next: Notre Dame Fighting Irish – Buy Tickets
|8||12-0||-||Congratulations to the Utah Utes, they have run the table and now their destiny is a BCS Bowl Game. They doubled up on arguably their toughest test of the season the BYU Cougars. Next: N/A|
|9||11-0||-||The Bronco’s got a great game out of their star freshman quarterback and needed every play as they hung on to win at Nevada. If the Bronco’s can close their season with another victory they also run the table. Up Next: Fresno State Bulldogs – Buy Tickets|
|10||10-2||1||The Buckeyes were just too much for the Wolverines, as Beanie Wells made some huge plays in the second half to rout rival Michigan. Up Next: N/A|
|11||9-2||5||Brian Kelly had dreams of turning Tony Pike into a great college quarterback, he has reached that super stardom rather quickly. The Bearcats are playing some good football and sit atop the Big East. Up Next: Syracuse Orangemen – Buy Tickets|
TCU wrapped up their season with only 2 losses, those 2 losses, however, were to two teams with a combined record of 22-1. The Horned Frogs had another great year and should hold their heads high and represent the Mountain West Conference with a lot of pride. Up Next: N/A
|13||9-2||3||Bye Week. Up Next: Kansas Jayhawks – Buy Tickets|
|14||9-2||1||Bye Week. Up Next: Oklahoma Sooners – Buy Tickets|
|15||9-2||1||Bye Week. Up Next: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – Buy Tickets|

|17||8-3||2||Beaver fans held their collective breaths when the game-tying PAT was missed with under 4:00 to go. The entire state of Oregon exhaled when Justin Kahut hit the game winning field goal as time expired to keep their Rose Bowl hopes alive. Up Next: Oregon Ducks – Buy Tickets|
|18||10-2||6||BYU lost in the annual ‘Holy Bowl’, which means they will not be playing in a BCS Bowl. The Cougars just fell apart in the fourth quarter getting outscored 21-0 and watching as Utes fans stormed the field in the dying seconds. Up Next: N/A|
|19||7-3||NR||Pat White has done everything for the Mountaineers during his career there. He is trying his best to lead West Virginia to another Big East title, but it is not in their hands anymore, they need a Cincinnati loss in the upcoming weeks. Next Up: Pittsburgh Panthers – Buy Tickets|
|20||8-3||NR||The ACC remains to be a circus, with several teams in the hunt for a conference title the division will not be decided until the final game of the season. Up Next: Georgia Bulldogs – Buy Tickets|
|21||8-3||NR||It was evident that the Seminoles were not looking ahead to their game against the Gators as they absolutely dominated the Terrapins this week. In the unpredictable ACC up is down and down is up, so we will not make any predictions, but rather just watch the final games and see what develops. Up Next: Florida Gators – Buy Tickets|
|22||8-3||-||Bye Week. Up Next: Oregon State Beavers - Buy Tickets|
|23||9-2||2||Bye Week. Up Next: Ball State Cardinals – Buy Tickets|
|24||9-3||NR||They had a very difficult loss as a trip to the Rose Bowl was within their grasp. They just did not have the talent to keep up with the Nittany Lions. The program is back on track and coach mark Dantonio should be enthusiastic about the talent at MSU. Up Next: N/A|
|25||7-4||NR||The Rebels are not in the Top 25 based on the way they have played all season nor for the record they have accumulated. The Rebels have yet to lose a game by more than 7 points and have earned victories in two of the toughest stadiums to win in (Florida and LSU), they are deserving of the No. 25 seed. Up Next: Mississippi State Bulldogs – Buy Tickets|
