TU is the real deal because they beat an over-rated TTU.  USC has a much harder schedule and will be on top in a matter of weeks.

The kicker about this is that NO HUMAN POLL rates Texas over USC, but six computers think they are better.  They obviously dont watch the games.

The main point is that UT and $C are the two best teams right now; as long as we don't see another monumental BCS fuckup on par with 2003, this will workout fine. If they win out, they will be in the rose bowl. Overall, I think UT has played better this season and deserves the #1 ranking, but as long as they make the rose bowl (if they win out), who really cares?

UT has played better football, but they have had a much easier schedule.  Their one tough road game was against OSU.  USC has to have the roughest nonconference schedule in the country.

Texas' next three opponents are oklahoma state, baylor, and kansas.  combine that with la-lafayyet and rice, and you are prolly going to be playing some good football. 

USC played/plays these road games Hawaii(not hard), Oregon(tough), Arizona state(tougher), ND(dam tough), Washington(easy peasy), and Cal(pretty tough). 

5 out of the last 7 games were away!!! and they still stayed undefeated

Playing at ND is tough; the fans are on top of the field!  But being USC and playing at ND is much tougher given our long rivalry.

admittedly we opened with hawaii and arkansas, but they are much better than rice and la-lafayette. 

plus, going away for 5 of the last 7 games is incredibly tough.

and the Pac10 is no slouch this year, so get that part straight
