Something unusual happened entering week-10 of the 2007 college football season. The top-7 BCS teams led by No 1 Ohio State and No.2 Boston College, remained the same from the previous week while only two teams, Virginia Tech and South Florida dropped from the top-10 all together. Kansas, at No. 9 the previous week moved up to No. 8 while Missouri, makes its top-10 debut at No. 9. The Georgia Bulldogs, made the biggest jump going from No. 18 in week 8 to No. 10 in week-9.
Hawaii moved from No. 17 to 14 after its 50-13 victory over New Mexico State and is nearing the required No. 12 ranking to become BCS bowl eligible. The final 4-games on Hawaii’s schedule will be the most challenging. The Warriors don’t have a game in week-10, but must face Fresno State, Nevada, No. 22 Boise State and Washington in the weeks following. Of those final 4-games, only Nevada is on the road.
Dropping completely from the BCS Poll are Kentucky South Carolina, California, and Penn State while No. 21 Wisconsin, No. 22 Boise State, No. 24 Wake Forest, and No. 25 Clemson make their 2007 BCS Poll debut.
