CBS Sportsline Blog Poll Week 3

New, 2 comments
Here is my Week 3 blog poll for CBSSportsline.com. I know it's early (REAL early), but the pieces are in place for a 'mid-major' team to really break things up in the BCS this year. Last year, Utah couldn't do it because they started too far out. However, with teams like BYU and Boise State already in the top 10, could this be the year someone busts up the BCS so badly that they actually make a title game?

BYU has three tough challenges (Florida State, Utah, and TCU), but they're all at home. After beating Oklahoma, if they somehow can run the table, they've got to be in the championship discussion.

Boise State has a MUCH easier path...their toughest remaining game may be this weekend at Fresno State. If they ran the table, I wouldn't have a problem leaving them out of the discussion. The schedule just isn't challenging enough in my opinion.

Again, way too early to even think about this, but it could get interesting...
