Alabama #1 in 1st BCS Rankings of the 2013 Season

New, 93 comments

Alabama is #1 again, but we all know how much a #1 ranking means in October— diddly squat.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

Is it bad that I kind of yawned when the rankings came out?

Auburn at #11 is a surprise.

FSU at #2 over Oregon is a bit of a shocker but their lead is so thin, a FSU fart one way or another and Oregon is #2.

Hey VT, keep winning.

Louisville at #20 is sweet justice for that pitiful schedule.

tOSU fans are going to be so bitter when they go undefeated, again, and are left out of the BCS title game. Love it.
