2008 Las Vegas Sports Consultants Top 30, Week 11

I never thought I’d see the day, but Southern Cal no longer graces the top of the money guys’ power rankings.

Rank Team Rating Previous Notes
1 Florida 113.5 2 The Gators look impressive.
2 Southern Cal 113.1 1 Crept by Cal in low scoring affair.
3 Oklahoma 112.6 3 Showed Texas A&M no mercy.
4 Texas 111.8 3 Baylor no match for Longhorns.
5 Texas Tech 110.9 6 No letdown against Cowboys.
6 Penn State 109.4 5 Cough up title hopes late at Iowa.
7 Alabama 108.0 7 Created turnovers to survive at LSU.
8 Missouri 107.2 8 Easily handled Kansas State.
9 Georgia 106.0 10 Worked hard for win at Kentucky.
10 Oklahoma State 105.8 9 Found out Red Raiders are for real.
11 Ohio State 105.7 11 Buckeyes buried Northwestern.
12 LSU 104.1 12 Heartbreaking loss to ‘Bama.
13 California 103.6 14 Gave USC a run for its money.
14 Utah 103.4 18 Utes know how to win close games.
15 Texas Christian 103.1 13 Devastating loss at Utah.
16 Boise State 102.9 18 Broncos cruise by Utah State.
17 Arizona 102.7 17 Heading up North to face the Ducks.
18 South Carolina 102.5 22 Spurrier heading to the Swamp.
19 Oregon 102.3 20 Held off Stanford.
20 Florida State 102.1 23 Clobbered Clemson.
21 West Virginia 101.9 15 Tough OT loss to Cincinnati.
22 Oregon State 101.8 24 Host Cal this week.
23 North Carolina 101.6 25 Solid victory over Georgia Tech.
24 Brigham Young 101.3 21 Pay a visit to Air Force.
25 Michigan State 100.8 28 No problem with Purdue.
26 Cincinnati 100.7 26 Momentum building win over WVU.
27 Iowa 100.5 NR Big win over Nittany Lions.
27 Pittsburgh 100.5 29 Manhandled Louisville.
29 Kansas 100.4 16 Upset at Nebraska.
30 Tulsa 99.8 NR Move up while idle.

Texas Tech and Alabama sure aren’t getting the love, are they?  And LSU, which seemed underrated by Vegas earlier in the season, now seems to be locked into the #12 slot no matter how many interceptions Jarrett Lee may throw.  They like their Gamecocks, too.

  1. Alabama is starting to get a “borrowed time” stench about them. You look at UF/LSU, UGA/LSU, Bama/LSU, and one of these things is not like the others…

    Hey D.N. Nation. Look at UF/UM and Bama/UM.
    Like you said one of those is not like the other.

    And one more thing. Penn State losses to Iowa and is still ranked ahead of Alabama. This poll is a freaking joke.
