BSU 2nd Academically Of Bowl Teams

If academics determined the Bowl Championship competitors, Oregon and Auburn would not be playing the championship game this year. They would be ranked seventeenth and twenty-first in the BCS standings. This is actually an improvement for Oregon over last year’s Academic BCS, when the team placed twenty-third. So who would be contending for the crystal trophy in Glendale, AZ, if the match-up was determined by academic performance? Stanford and Boise State are the class of the BCS, according to our rankings of the top 25 college football teams. That’s impressive, when you consider that both schools are in the top ten athletically as well -- Stanford is ranked fourth, and Boise State comes in tenth in the BCS standings/Maggie Severns, Higher Education Watch.

Question: Does it matter to you how well the players on your favorite college team perform academically?
