A team’s highest and lowest computer ranking will be discarded from figuring a team’s computer poll average. Points will be assigned in inverse order of ranking from 1-25. The four remaining computer scores will be averaged and the total will be calculated as a percentage of 100.

These are all added together and an average for a team’s ranking in the BCS standings. The team with the highest average will rank first in the BCS standings.

National Title Possibilities:

Iowa vs Florida/ Alabama

Iowa is #1 on 5/6 of the BCS Computer Polls.  So that makes them #1 by the computers when you take out the high and the low.  The only thing bringing Iowa down is the Harris and the Coaches Poll. So they are officially ranked 4th in the BCS due to the Harris and the Coaches Poll.  Go Hawks!
