During the 08-18-12 EMC with BabethomHerman Show I went over the teams that I felt would be Contenders or Pretenders for the BCS Title which were ranked in the top 10 of The USA Today’s 2012 top 25 NCAA FBS College Football teams.
Now this poll came out prior to Tyrann Mathieu being suspended from the LSU football team, although I feel LSU will contend for the SEC Championship, I have them as pretenders for the BCS Title.
A few hours after my show aired, The AP (Associated Press) announced their top 25 and has LSU ranked 3rd, the USC Trojans and Alabama Crimson Tide number 1 and 2 respectively. These are the two teams that I picked on my show to play against each other for the BCS Title this season, if USC improves defensively.
Florida State was ranked 7th in the USA Today's poll which I felt was too high. Although Virginia Tech is ranked 20th, I have them as a sleeper contender winning the ACC, finishing in the top 10 nationally and possibly making a run for the BCS Title.
