Error Found in BCS Rankings: Jerry Palm, the publisher of CollegeBCS.Com, found an error in the Colley Matrix computer ratings that caused four teams to be misranked in the BCS rankings. "The Appalachian State-Western Illinois FCS playoff game was missing from his data set," he explains. "I will spare you some of the gory, mathematical details, but the net result of that omission in Colley's rankings is that LSU, which he ranked ninth, and his No. 10, Boise State, should be switched. Alabama and Nebraska, which he had 17th and 18th, would also be swapped." Such an error could have affected BCS eligibility. "[T]his issue will be near the top of the agenda for the conference commissioners' annual review next spring," said BCS executive director Bill Hancock.
