ESPN: Clemson and the BCS voters

by -

From Heather Dinich of ESPN:

Who are these people who are influencing the outcome of the BCS standings?

Votes go to 59 head coaches of FBS teams. So of the 120 FBS teams, 49.2 percent -- almost half -- have a coach with a vote.

There are 115 voters in the Harris poll.

Clemson fans might be interested to know that former coach Tommy Bowden gets a vote in the Harris poll.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney does NOT have a vote in the coaches' poll, nor does Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson.

All of the coaches in the teams ranked ABOVE No. 7 Clemson in the BCS standings, with the exception of Oklahoma State, DO have a vote. If they wanted to, each of them could vote their team No. 1 every week.
