"the tissues that surround tumors in the chest and upper abdomen are very sensitive to radiation."

Good afternoon everybody and welcome to you Monday ticker. Today marks the release of the first BCS standings of the season. As we've learned from past experiences with the Bowl Championship Series, this is how the two combatants in the national championship game are determined.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Landover, MD/August 28; :00]

No surprise at the top of the first BCS poll, as number one ranked and defending National Champ Southern Cal holds down the number one position. USC and Oklahoma have been one and two in the polls since the preseason. The Trojans hold a substantial lead over the Sooners in both polls, and Oklahoma is comfortably No. 2 in both. However, the number two team in the BCS is a bit of a surprise.
(xxxxxxxxxxxx)

[GO TO BCS PINNACLE] The Miami Hurricanes and not the Oklahoma Sooners are second in the standings. This despite the fact that the Canes are third in one poll and fourth in the other this week. Miami has been in the top 5 of the AP poll for 59 of the last 70 weeks and this year the new rules mean two thirds of total is based on the top 25 polls. The other third is based on six computer rankings - and that's where Miami made up all of its ground. Auburn and FSU round out the top five. As you can see the Cavaliers are 15th and the Hokies 25th.
