BCS Standings: Teams That Will Experience Biggest Moves
Saturday was one of the wildest days of the 2012 college football season. Upsets, wild finishes and high-scoring affairs, Week 11 had it all.
Now that the BCS picture was busted wide open, let's take a look at some teams that will experience the biggest moves when the rankings are released on Sunday night.
Johnny Manziel. Texas A&M. We must start here, clearly.
The Aggies went into Bryant-Denny Stadium and punched the No. 1 team in the country in the mouth early and held on late. Alabama had no answers for Manziel and the impressive aggressiveness of the offense to start the game.
Within the blink of an eye the score was 20-0. The Aggies went into a hostile environment and played their best game of the season. All the credit goes to Texas A&M.
Last Sunday Texas A&M was ranked No. 15 in the BCS rankings. After Saturday's game, however, I'm expecting a jump to No. 8. right behind the one-loss teams and LSU, who defeated them earlier this season.
Louisville has yet to defeat a Top 25 team this season, they play in the Big East Conference and they got smacked by a Syracuse team that is 5-5. Say goodbye to your No. 9 ranking.
The Cardinals lost to Syracuse by 19 points. They gave up 45 points, 278 rushing yards and 524 yards of total offense.
Which team will have the biggest fall or climb?
Expect Louisville to slide to at least No. 20. If they were in a better conference or even if they defeated one quality team this season, maybe they would get more love from the computers. But they won't get any love.
The Rockets will be leaving the BCS standings nearly as fast as they entered. Toledo entered the rankings last week after improving to 8-1 with a victory at Buffalo.
But then they laid an egg. Toledo, feeling great and maybe even overconfident, allowed Ball State to defeat them at the Glass Bowl in Toledo.
Toledo won't find the BCS rankings again this season after this loss. Expect a big fall for Toledo with Oklahoma State taking their ranking.
My BCS prediction
1. Kansas State
3. Notre Dame
8. Texas A&M
9. South Carolina
10. Florida State
14. Oregon State
19. Louisiana Tech
21. Texas Tech
23. Mississippi State
24. Northern Illinois
25. Oklahoma State
