Top 25 Results/Projection

It seemed like every team Baylor needed to lose yesterday, lost, and the Bears are primed for a huge move upward.  The rankings will likely drop momentarily, perhaps before I even finish this post.

Coaches Poll: Baylor is #5, its highest ranking in as long as any of us can remember. That's important to the BCS.

AP Poll: Baylor is #6, behind new SEC East favorite Mizzou.

Seems a plurality of voters think we'll be #6 in the BCS when it is released today.
