BCS Rankings Week 9 Projections: Expect A New Look Top 10

With two big upsets this weekend the BCS top 10 will have a much different look when the official standings are released.

Primetime Saturday  night featured the biggest upsets of the night and one the biggest upset to date this season. The unranked Texas Tech Red Raiders pulled of the upset over the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners 41-38, the score was not as close as the actual outcome. Then the No. 6 ranked Wisconsin Badgers choked away a 14-0 lead to only lose on a hail mary that had to be reviewed against No. 16 Michigan St. Spartans. The top of the rankings will look a little different this evening.

The Clemson Tigers and Stanford Cardinal are expected to make big jumps this week due to the computers giving them a boost for playing tougher teams this weekend.

The top 10 will certainly have a new look today and here is what the BCS Guru thinks the top 15 will look like:

1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Oklahoma State
4. Clemson
5. Stanford
6. Boise State
7. Arkansas
8. Kansas State
9. Oregon
10. Oklahoma
11. Nebraska
12. Michigan State
13. Wisconsin
14. South Carolina
15. Virginia Tech
