Rolling Tide, meet Beaver Dam.
Alabama, it turns out, does not have a mortal lock on the No. 1 spot in college football.
Oregon State, which is off to a 3-0 start, is No. 1 in two of the computer indexes used in the BCS standings formula.
The Beavers are tops in the ColleyMatrix, which boasts "Bias Free Matrix Rankings."
If Colley had its way, Oregon State today would play No. 2 Notre Dame for the national title. This would not bring back fond memories for Notre Dame, handed a humiliating 41-9 loss by Oregon State in the 2001 Fiesta Bowl.
Florida is No. 3 in Colley's rankings, followed by Alabama (oh yeah, those guys), Florida State, South Carolina and Kansas State.
