BCS Standings 2013: Complete Order for Top 25 Unveiled
The latest BCS standings have just been released after a relatively wild weekend of college football action.
While there wasn’t much change at the top, a handful of schools slid up and down the rankings based on their performances in Week 9 of the 2013 season.
Let’s take a look at the complete standings going into Week 10, compare them to Bleacher Report’s Official Top 25 poll, recap the week and more.
Alabama remains No. 1 for yet another week, knocking off the Tennessee Volunteers to remain unbeaten and in the driver’s seat heading toward a third straight national title.
Oregon jumped up a spot from the initial BCS rankings, as the Ducks took out their frustrations and anger on the UCLA Bruins. Blowing out the No. 12 team in the nation, 42-14, was a feat too great for both the computers and human voters to ignore.
The Ducks are once again primed to make a BCS national championship game run and could solidify their status as the top contender by trouncing No. 5 Stanford this coming Thursday.
Which team should be No. 2?
Speaking of the Cardinal, they earned a much-needed win against the Oregon State Beavers. They fought back into the Top Five and could shock the world by ousting Oregon.
Florida State dropped back to No. 3, even after handily dismissing NC State. The Seminoles will play No. 7 Miami this coming Saturday and could make a case to leap back up a spot.
The Hurricanes are coming off a scrappy win against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and represent the biggest ACC challenger to FSU in 2013. It wasn't pretty, but a last-minute score ensured Miami would remain unbeaten and in the BCS picture.
Ohio State decimated Penn State and it seems like the Buckeyes are making a statement. They have a right to be angry, as they started the year ranked No. 2, but may fall out of the national title conversation without having lost a single contest.
Missouri dropped out of the Top Five after a heartbreaking double-overtime loss to South Carolina. The No. 14 Gamecocks put a damper on the Tigers' title dreams with an epic comeback capped off by Mizzou missing a 24-yard field goal off the upright.
That wasn't the only case of a higher-ranked team falling to a lower one this week, as the No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners finally knocked off the Texas Tech Red Raiders. It was a close one and now the Big 12 is as wide open as it has ever been.
Virginia Tech suffered perhaps the ugliest upset of the week, as the Hokies mustered barely any offense in a 13-10 defeat to unranked Duke. They deservedly plummeted out of the Top 25 after that result. UCLA fell all the way down to No. 20.
With just a few weeks left on the season, it seems we are in for a wild ride down the stretch. There will be no shortage of BCS controversy and drama, so stay tuned and don’t miss a minute of the Week 10 action.
