Inside NCAA Football: The thrill ride continue

In the midst of professional football’s potent entertainment value, the young NCAA football season has presented its own basket of surprises, with top?ranked teams rising and falling as frequently and dramatically as the stock market.
While Alabama, Ohio State and Boise State have had a varyingly firm grip on the top three spots, teams such as Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and Texas have not lived up to preseason expectations and have plummeted from the upper echelons of their respective leagues. This has left the door open for a group of surprise squads that look poised to make a run at the title.
