The BCS rankings are out but not before another wave of upsets rolled through several teams in the AP Top 25.

The timeliest benefactor is arguably Florida State. Going in to last week's match up the (then) #5 Seminoles has an opportunity to make a statement against the #3 Clemson Tigers.

That statement was heard loud and clear by the Bowl Championship Series as Florida State dominated the Tigers 51-14 in front of a nationwide audience and vaulted the Seminoles to a #2 BCS ranking.

Clemson wasn't the only pre-poll casualty as LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida all fell from their previous positions within the Associate Press poll.

According to the current BCS system, which will be the last not to include a playoff, it would be Alabama vs. Florida State if the season ended today. However, there is plenty of college football left. We will all have to keep watching and guessing how all this will turnout.

Suntime Customer Spotlight

By: Jan Carlon of Genesis Jewelry

Having a business in the heart of the SEC, Genesis Jewelry in Muscle Shoals Alabama, starts preparing for the college football season early. One of our best selling items are the collegiate watches from Suntime. We stock up for the season in August making sure that we have a great selection of Suntime watches for the teams in Alabama, Tennessee, and Mississippi in stock. We even have Suntime watches for a Division II school in our area. We start advertising the week before the football season begins in print and with commercials placed on the most popular sports channels. From that point it is game on!!

Our collegiate business grows each year and though we sell collegiate items year-round, our peak is during the football season. While we stock a selection of watches from teams that are prominent in our area we always mention that Suntime has other teams available for any customers searching for teams we do not stock. Suntime's quick delivery is a valuable asset in restocking after a big weekend and also getting a shipment for the customers looking for a specific team.

It's hard not to brag about the last four BCS National Championships being won by teams from Alabama. Three for Alabama and one for Auburn. Championships mean collegiate business moves into January with sales of Suntime's Championship Watches which are in our store within a very short time after the game has concluded. We will not complain if we add another Suntime National Championship Watch to our selection in January!!
