BCS Rankings 2013 Week 11: Complete Rankings for Latest Release
Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

It's hard to believe the 2013 college football season is nearly in the books. Heading into Week 11, there are a few undefeated teams with legitimate BCS title hopes, and those teams not surprisingly headline the BCS rankings.

The season has already provided fans with a bevy of thrilling upsets, which have caused upheaval in the rankings—not to mention lost opportunities for teams hoping to make it to the championship game. 

Not surprisingly, Alabama has the top spot in the rankings on lockdown. Until the Crimson Tide are defeated, nobody's taking that spot from the repeat champions. 

'Bama isn't the only powerhouse team taking out opponents with ease, however. There are three other teams vying for a chance to take on Nick Saban's squad, and the race for the title game will be fierce until the final whistle of the final game.  

Here's a look at the updated BCS rankings:

Week 11 BCS Rankings

Florida State's huge 41-14 victory over ACC rival Miami on Saturday night highlighted Week 10's action. The Seminoles were able to completely dominate the Hurricanes, rendering the previously undefeated squad helpless to defend against a relentless onslaught of big plays. 

For the first time this season, redshirt freshman Jameis Winston struggled with turnovers, throwing two interceptions. He only threw one touchdown, which was his lowest total of the year. 

However, FSU's overall depth was clearly demonstrated, as Winston's teammates rallied behind their young leader. After taking a touchdown lead into halftime, FSU owned the second half and easily moved to 8-0 on the season. 

Ohio State also made a big impression on Saturday—albeit on a smaller scale. Purdue had no chance against the Buckeyes, as Braxton Miller easily led his team to a 56-0 victory, thanks in part to his four passing touchdowns.

It wasn't enough to gain ground in the standings, however, as Purdue isn't a strong opponent.

Oklahoma State and Michigan State both earned slight bumps in the rankings after taking down ranked opponents.

Meanwhile, Alabama, Oregon, Baylor and Stanford took the weekend off on byes, meaning the teams couldn't do anything about their BCS status heading into Week 11.

Heading into the final stretch, there are some huge matchups looming that will shape the landscape of the BCS bowl games. Oregon takes on Stanford on Thursday night in Week 11 to kick off the weekend in style, and two games—LSU vs. Baylor and LSU vs. Alabama—highlight the action in Week 12.

The final month of action should be incredibly exciting, as there's no room for error for the teams at the top of the rankings.
