BCS Week 4

Upsets

LSU (AP: 5 Coach: 5 Computer: 13) over Alabama (AP: 3 Coach: 3 Computer: 4)

Auburn (AP: 15 Coach: 17 Computer: NR) over Georgia (AP: 9 Coach: 9 Computer: 12)

South Carolina (AP: NR Coach: NR Computer: NR) over Florida (AP: 12 Coach: 12 Computer: 17)

Clemson (AP: NR Coach: NR Computer: NR) over Florida St. (AP: 17 Coach: 16 Computer: 24)

Iowa (AP: NR Coach: NR Computer: NR) over Wisconsin (AP: 19 Coach: 19 Computer: 9)

Virginia (AP: NR Coach: NR Computer: NR) over Georgia Tech (AP: 24 Coach: 24 Computer: 22)

Current Upset Standings

AP: 88 + (2 + 6 + 18 + 13 + 11 + 6) = 145
Coach: 93 + (2 + 8 + 18 + 14 + 11 + 6) = 152
Computer: 77 + (9 + 18 + 13 + 6 + 21 + 8) = 152

Well, for the first time a human poll is better than the computers. Crushing underestimations of LSU and Auburn, and a misplaced love for Wisconsin hurt the BCS computers significantly. Through the season so far the computers are no better than the human polls at predicting upsets and indeed the media writers are the best of all.
