If the coaches' poll and the Harris poll follow the Associated Press poll's lead, then tonight's BCS announcement could be interesting. LSU is a unanimous number one, but Bama is no longer a unamious number two.

The APpoll is not part of the BCSformula, which depends upon a computer and two human polls.

However, it is a good indicator, and an idle Alabama lost 22 second place votes to Oklahoma State after the Cowboys whipped the Sooners.
