The BCS standings for Week 11 of the 2013 college football season have officially come out, and the No. 2 and No. 3 teams have changed once again.
Florida State was able to hop over Oregon for the No. 2 spot after the same thing had happened to them in Week 10. With yet another big win, this time over the Miami Hurricanes, the Seminoles certainly deserved to move up once again.
Let's take a look at the latest BCS standings, followed by a breakdown of the most interesting of the Top 25 teams.
|Week 11 BCS Standings|
No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies
Despite dominating UTEP 57-7, the Texas A&M Aggies dropped three spots in the latest rankings with others teams that were originally behind them pulling out bigger wins.
Johnny Manziel continues to be one of the most exciting players in college football. He racked up 340 total yards and six total touchdowns in the win. For the season, he now has over 3,400 total yards, 34 total touchdowns and eight interceptions.
For as explosive as the offense has been, the defense has still struggled. The competition hasn't been very tough so far, yet the Aggies have allowed 29.8 points and 443.1 yards per game.
It doesn't seem likely that the Aggies will be able to go to a BCS bowl, but they're still having a strong season, and Manziel is making a case to win his second Heisman trophy.
No. 17 Michigan State Spartans
Not only were the Michigan State Spartans able to take down their hated rivals, they were also the biggest risers in this week's rankings after the win over the Michigan Wolverines.
Defense has been the big story for the Spartans this season. They have the third-best scoring defense, holding their opponents to just 11.6 points per game. They also allow just 210.2 yards per game, with teams only averaging 3.5 yards per play. Over the last three games, the Spartans have given up just nine total points.
Jeremy Langford has led the offense for the Spartans on the ground. So far, he's run for 775 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging 4.6 yards per carry.
The Big Ten isn't the strongest conference, but the Spartans are playing solid defense and winning pretty convincingly.
No. 22 Arizona State Sun Devils
The only team to break into the Top 25 after being unranked last week, the Arizona State Sun Devils are coming off of a big 55-21 win over Washington State.
Not only are the Sun Devils riding a three-game win streak, they've also scored at least 50 points in each of those games and in four of their last five.
Marion Grice has been an explosive player out of the backfield both through the air and on the ground. He's run for 647 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 35 passes for another 333 yards and six scores. Taylor Kelly has made some plays under center as well, racking up over 2,800 total yards and 28 total touchdowns.
With big wins over Wisconsin, USC and Washington, the Sun Devils have earned their spot in the Top 25, and we will see if they can keep moving up.
