In a blog hosted by ESPN's Bruce Feldman one fan asked:
"Do you think BYU should not be ranked so high? Yes, they beat OU, but the latter was without their star QB and TE and lost by a measly point."
"Disagree. I think they should be ranked that high. They were the reason why Sam Bradford didn't finish that game and he played in the first half and that offense didn't have a play longer than 18 yards with him in there. Plus, BYU was without its best RB Harvey Unga who is really good. BYU did something. Most other teams high in the rankings, save for perhaps Bama and Ok St, are just up there because of supposed potential."
