2010 Gus Rankings: Week 11

Here are this week's Gus Rankings.

Of interest is the relationship between the two popular non-BCS teams, TCU and Boise State. TCU holds a healthy 13-point lead over Boise State at the moment yet plays only one more game this season, against 1-win New Mexico. Boise State has three remaining games, against Fresno State (5 wins), Nevada (8 wins) and Utah State (3 wins). While both teams still earn points from teams they have defeated earlier in the season, it's looking like Boise State should outpace TCU at season's end. (Assuming both teams win out, of course; the argument is otherwise moot if one (or both) of them should lose.) Boise State should pass Michigan State and stay ahead of Oregon, too, and have a fair chance to pass both LSU and Oklahoma State-- I'm very curious to see where Boise State ends the season. It's not inconceivable for them to finish the season on top of the Gus Rankings, though they will need some chips to fall their way.
