Lightbulb BCS rankings revealed

Despite leading both polls, Miami is No. 2

Miami is No. 1 just about everywhere but where it counts most -- in the Bowl Championship Series standings.

The Hurricanes, No. 1 since the preseason in The Associated Press media and coaches' polls, were second behind Oklahoma in the first BCS standings released Monday. And look who's third -- Notre Dame!

Thanks to friendly computer ratings and a schedule rated toughest in the nation, the Fighting Irish are in position to make a run at the national championship.

The BCS standings are used to determine which teams play in a national title game. The teams that finish 1-2 in the final BCS standings on Dec. 8 will play for the title in Tempe, Ariz., at the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.
Does it make any sense for the 'Canes to be No. 2? It was surprised to see this considering I can't remember their last loss.
