Critics have been saying ever since Ohio State took over as the number one team in the BCS that they were there by default and that they were overrated, now they have been exposed after losing to Illinois on Saturday.

The LSU Tigers have taken the reigns as the new #1 team in the BCS, and the Tigers now have a clear run to the championship game if they can run the table and win the SEC championship game.

Oregon, another team that lost early and has not lost since, moved up from #3 to #2, and the Ducks are now in a position to face LSU in a championship game that would involve two teams from what are perceived to be the two best conferences in College Football this season.

Kansas won impressively again this weekend and now takes their perfect 10-0 record into the #3 spot in the BCS. Oklahoma, a team that Kansas will have to beat to stay in the top five, is fourth at 9-1, and Missouri, another Big Twelve team is number five with their 9-1 record.

Indianapolis And San Diego Looking To Rebound After Losses Last Week

When the Indianapolis Colts stepped on the field last week against the New England Patriots, their goal was to show the world that they still were the team to beat in the AFC.

The Colts lost that game, and now will turn their attention to the San Diego Chargers, who also lost last week in a game that saw the Chargers give up the most rushing yards in one game in the history of the NFL.

San Diego had been playing well until last week as they shook off an early season slump, but now they are back at square one and are in desperate need of a win tonight to stay in the playoff hunt.

The Colts feel they should have won the game last week against the Patriots, and although they did not, they still believe they are the best team in the league, and the only way to prove that is to start another long winning streak, beginning tonight.

This game was touted before the season as one which could have been a preview of the AFC championship game, but with the Chargers struggling, there is no guarantee they will even be in the playoffs.

Game time tonight is set for 8:15 and will be shown nationally on NBC.

The Kentucky Wildcats have not been a competitive football team since Jared Lorenzen left for the NFL, but a win tonight against the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Wildcats will become a team to reckon with in the SEC.

South Carolina made the move a few seasons ago that they felt would ensure that they get to the top of the college football World, they hired the old ball coach, Steve Spurrier.

After a couple of rebuilding years in which Spurrier himself did not think the Gamecocks were worthy of contending, South Carolina finally might have what it takes.

Speaking before the season to his players, he revealed that he feels they finally have all the pieces in place to compete for an SEC crown. They failed their first test, getting their clocks cleaned by the #1 team in the nation, LSU, but they can go a long way toward redemption by beating the Wildcats.

Kentucky comes into the game riding the coat tails of their all everything quarterback Andre Woodson, and an offense that can score points in a hurry.

South Carolina touts the 25th ranked defense in the country, and as is the case so often with big games in football, something will have to give.

The game will be played in South Carolina, which gives the Gamecocks an edge, but whoever comes out on top will be well towards their goal of winning a conference title.
