The BCS rankings have just been released and Florida State has climbed up to 9th.
Beating Duke, despite the fact they are hardly a strong 6-3, helped the Seminoles with the computer polls which had been hurting Florida State to this point. But the bigger aid was the number of teams ahead of the Seminoles that lost this week.
The 'Noles computer average still isn't good, but games against Virginia Tech and Florida in the coming weeks should help it a little more. So should more losses by top 10 teams. FSU continues to climb steadily from 14 to 12 to 9.
The BCS top ten was:
9.) Florida State
8.) South Carolina
3.) Notre Dame
2.) Kansas State
I'll update later tonight once I can look at the breakdown a little more...
