CLEMSON, SC -- The season's first Bowl Championship Series' standings were released tonight during the telecast of the ABC Monday Night Football game between the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets. The Tigers were ranked seventh just 0.04 points behind sixth ranked Florida.


The BCS standings is a statistical rating system that determines which teams will participate in the national championship game of the Bowl Championship Series. The current BCS standings system has been in use for each of the past two seasons.


The standings consist of four major components: subjective polls of the writers and coaches, computer rankings, schedule strength and team record. The two teams which have the lowest point total in the four categories will play in the national championship game in the FedEx Orange Bowl on January 3, 2001.
