BCS Championship Picture 2012: Title Game Candidates After Week 3

We're three weeks into the 2012 college football season, and it is safe to say that the more we think we know, the less we actually do. 

We can say with some level of comfort that Alabama is the best team in the country. The Crimson Tide have allowed 14 points in three games, and have defeated Michigan and Arkansas by a combined score of 93-14. 

After the Tide, there are a few teams you can make a case for as being No. 2. Everyone will point to LSU, as they should. The Tigers have yet to play a quality opponent and are flying under the radar thanks to what Alabama is doing, but Les Miles has a really, really good team. 

So what does all this early season madness mean for the BCS Championship Game? Things are going to change precipitously over the next two months, but now that we have games to judge teams by, we can at least separate the wheat from the chaff. 

Here are the teams that have made the most noise in the BCS title picture thus far. These are only based on what has happened through Week 3, so if you don't see your team, it's not a slight against them. It just means we need to see a little more out of them before putting them in this class.
