BCS QUESTION....I'll be out of the, um, office this morning, but after I posted about the BCS last night I got curious about something and figured there might be some sports gurus out there who have an answer.

My question is this: has anyone ever tested the computer rankings to see which one is most accurate? An accurate ranking is one in which the higher ranked team wins when it plays a lower ranked team, and by now we've had thousands of games played since the BCS was introduced. So how have they done? What's their accuracy percentage?

Is there a site that tracks this?
