After a stunning win over Ole Miss in which the Tigers controlled much of the game, LSU came up short in the eyes of the College Football Selection Committee, only managing a lowly # 19 ranking. LSU has two losses and both came at the hands of the committee’s own #1 and #3 teams, Mississippi State and Auburn. The Billingsley Report ranks LSU 6th and the College Football Computer Composite, comprised of 5 of the 6 previous BCS computers, has LSU ranked 7th. As expected the SEC West dominated the first official Committee ranking, owning 3 of the coveted 4 positions. Conference games slated for the month of November will drastically change the rankings as most of the contenders (in all Power 5 Conferences) still must play one another. Oregon appears to be in the best position to take advantage of SEC West teams losing. If the Ducks win out, and capture the PAC 12 title, they are most likely in the Final Four. Oregon already holds the #3 ranking in the Billingsley Report.
