CFB Compu-Picks Ratings, Week Seven

14

... 3) Boise St is rated #1, partially because they've been generally dominant, and partially because they've played a pretty good schedule to date (though Virginia Tech's rating is currently inflated and likely to fall, affecting Boise's schedule strength a bit). Obviously, their schedule strength will start dropping as the year goes on (though they're already played two of their worst opponents, NM St and SJ St), and moreover, there's a very reasonable chance that one or more of the AQ teams will get on a hot streak and simply pass them. However, provided that they don't suffer stumbles like their surprisingly poor 28-21 result at Tulsa last year, I would expect their rating to remain very high. Every indication so far is that they really are an excellent football team. Of course, they're going to get hurt by the BCS's horrifically awful decision to force all of the computer rankings to ignore margin; if it turns into a close race at the end of the year, that could very well turn into the difference between whether or not Boise gets a national title bid.
