When does the first 2013 BCS poll come out?


The college football season is in full swing, but we are still missing the biggest player in the national title picture — the BCS rankings. Luckily for fans and teams who are looking to know where they stand, the first BCS poll of the 2013 season will be released this coming Sunday, October 20, so we can get a better look at where every team in the nation stands.

We can expect Alabama and Oregon to occupy the top spots, but it is going to be interesting to see what teams follow closely behind.

While we anxiously await the first BCS poll of the season, check out the top 25 projections from CBS Sports:
