College Football Top 10: 2009 Week 4

Virginia Tech is rising fast after they flattened Miami and re-asserted themselves in the ACC.

With all the upsets this weekend, the Sports of Boston College Football Top 10 sees some shakeups. Tim Tebow’s injury and Florida’s bye week may give the pollsters pause coming up, but they are still the favorite right now. Alabama is creeping up and they are looking for an opportunity to take over the top spot, having played the best schedule of the top three. Virginia Tech is taking care of business, pummeling Miami this weekend, and with Alabama looking as solid as they do, that loss is looking better and better.

Pollsters are SoB’s Carl, Erikk, KC, Matt, Mike, and Ty and comments were gathered with the votes. The ballots are available.

Week: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | Final

SoB’s Top 10 Poll

Rank Team Points Last Week Comment
1 Florida (6) 60 1 Erikk says, ‘Tim Tebow led the team to a sound win over Kentucky even though he was playing through the flu. The big question is if he will be back for LSU next Saturday after a possible concussion.’
2 Texas 52 2 Mike says, ‘Longhorns pounding teams they should be.’
3 Alabama 49 4 KC says, ‘Mark my words: ‘Bama will be No. 1 by season’s end.’
4 LSU 38 7 Ty says, ’4-0 in the SEC and big game this week against Georgia.’
5 Virginia Tech 32 10 KC says, ‘Ripping through a tough schedule, and somehow 3-1.’
6 Boise State 31 8 Ty says, ‘Kellen Moore and the Broncos stay undefeated and have been winning convincingly.’
7 USC 22 Erikk says, ‘Now that they have their bad loss out of their system, they can get back to work, which is exactly what they did against Washington State.’
8 Cincinnati 13 Mike says, ‘Tony Pike has them looking to repeat in the Big East.’
9 (tie) Oklahoma 7 KC says, ‘Nice test against Miami this week.’
9 (tie) TCU 7 Erikk, ‘They’ve beaten their BCS-conference opponents with ease (although their offense could’ve done more in Death Valley), so they’ll have to win out to be considered for a BCS bowl.’

Others receiving votes: Ohio State 6, Mississippi 4, Houston 3, Iowa 3, Penn State 2, Michigan 1

Dropped from rankings: Penn State 4, California 5, Mississippi 6, Miami (FL) 9
