When the Orange Bowl rolls around, if somebody doesn’t rise to the top and look dominant, non-BCS schools will be whining about a weak member in the ACC (and perhaps one in the Big East as well as #16 South Florida is the highest ranked team) getting a spot at the Big Bowl Extravaganza.
Right now, it would be hard to argue the point. Having said that, there is plenty of football left to play, and this weekend features some big games – BC at UNC, VT at FSU and UVA at Georgia Tech.
No. 18 Georgia Tech and No. 25 Florida State are the ACC's lone representatives in the first BCS Standings released Monday, after a weekend that saw Va Tech, Wake and UNC lose and fall from the polls.
Georgia Tech has moved to the front, and FSU has played well now that it matters including three straight wins since their crapfest vs. Wake Forest.
