Not surprisingly, an SEC team leads the way in the BCS rankings, and an SEC team leads the way in the aggregate BCS computer rankings. But they’re not the same team.
No, it’s Florida that pulls in the best aggregate BCS computer ranking in the first BCS standings of 2012, pulling in an impressive .960 score, which helped the Gators grab the No. 2 spot from the clutches of the Oregon Ducks. Florida is followed closely by another mild surprise, Notre Dame, which enjoys a comfortable .940 aggregate score on the strength of an already robust strength of schedule and undefeated record.
Alabama lands at No. 3 in the computer rankings with a .930 share, followed by Kansas State’s .920. But let’s explore deeper.
