TEN YEARS OF BCS TITLE GAMES, AND YOU GOTTA GO WITH TEXAS VS. USC AS THE BEST ONE, RIGHT?

What is "All-World Power Rankings?"

Interesting: "BCS" is an abbreviation for many things. For tonight, only one matters. By about 11:30pm EST, either Urban Meyer or Bob Stoops will be the first coach with two BCS Championships under their belt. Simple math: this is the 11th BCS Title game, meaning (you following along?) there have been 10 prior. Since these rankings usually need nine slots, we'll rank 9 of the 10 so far. What do we jettison? USC 55, Oklahoma 19. That game was just awful to watch. Now, ranking a list of games isn't necessarily the most interesting thing in world history (this is), so for each game, we're going to offer a "sidebar discussion" for you and your friends. Cool? Here we go.
