The Week 11 BCS standings were released on Sunday with few real surprises, but there were certainly some intriguing moves among the Top 25 teams.

The No. 1 spot stays with Alabama, and that seems fair considering that it did not play this week.  Oregon didn't play either, but Florida State was able to move into No. 2 after a big 41-14 win over the Miami Hurricanes.

Below is the complete BCS standings, followed by a breakdown of the teams that had the toughest breaks in the latest rankings.

The Baylor Bears stayed at the No. 6 spot in the latest rankings, but don't they deserve to be a top-five team?

It's true that the Bears haven't played a good team yet, but that's not their fault.  They've beaten every team that they've faced by an average margin of 48 points.

Offensively, Baylor is the most explosive team in all of football.  The Bears put up an average of 718.4 total yards and 63.9 points per game, leading the nation in both categories.

While there are many parts of this team that have been great, the ground game has just been incredible.  The Bears have put up a total of 2,108 yards and 34 touchdowns running the ball, averaging 6.3 yards per carry.

With the best offense in the nation and a perfect record, the Bears deserve to move into the No. 5. Upcoming games against Oklahoma and Texas Tech should continue to prove that.

No. 15 Texas A&M Aggies

It wasn't much of a contest for the Texas A&M Aggies, as they dominated UTEP, 57-7.  However, it apparently didn't help the Aggies, as they dropped three spots this week.

Johnny Manziel was huge in the win, racking up six touchdowns and helping his Heisman Trophy stock. Manziel has more than 3,400 total yards with 34 touchdowns this season while completing 72.5 percent of his passes, continuing to prove he's one of the most exciting players in college football.

The likely reason that the Aggies have fallen is because of their defense.  For a team that's supposed to be elite, their defense has been a liability, allowing 443.1 total yards and 29.8 points per game.

Losses against Alabama and Auburn have hurt this team's chances of making it into the Top 10, but it seems crazy to see a team drop three spots after blowing out an opponent by 50 points.

No. 18 Northern Illinois

No one wants to give the MAC team any love.

The Northern Illinois Huskies have yet to lose a game this season with a perfect 9-0 record and are coming off of a 63-19 win over Massachusetts.  Nevertheless, the BCS rankings didn't give any credit to the Huskies, who dropped one spot in the rankings.

Averaging 44.2 points and 312.7 rushing yards per game, Northern Illinois has one of the best offenses in the conference.  None of that could really be possible without Jordan Lynch, who is simply having an incredible season.

Through the Huskies' first nine games, Lynch has passed for 1,871 yards and 19 touchdowns with five interceptions.  While those numbers don't seem overwhelming, it's what he's done on the ground that's been even more impressive, having rushed for 1,150 yards and 12 touchdowns.

A team like the Huskies naturally won't get a lot of credit playing in a weaker conference like the MAC, but the Huskies are still undefeated, and they should be moving up the rankings rather than moving down.
