No. 1 Florida State handled business against a feisty Duke team in the ACC Championship. The Seminoles' critical win over the No. 24 Blue Devils punched their ticket to Pasadena to contest for the national championship. 

No. 2 Auburn will be the challenger after their thrilling 59-42 win over No. 8 Missouri in the SEC Championship. 

Ohio State blew their shot at landing in the BCS Championship game as the No. 7 Buckeyes fell to No. 4 Michigan State in the Big Ten title game 34-24. It was Urban Meyer's first career loss as head coach of the Buckeyes.

No. 3 Alabama moved up the rankings despite not having a scheduled game in Week 15. The Crimson Tide had their hopes of making the SEC Championship and a third-straight national title game dashed when Auburn upset them in the Iron Bowl.

The Bedlam Series was once again a great one, with No. 11 Oklahoma coming out on top over their bitter Big 12 rival No. 13 Oklahoma State by a score of 33-24 in a wild finsh.

No. 6 Baylor will be heading to their first ever BCS bowl game after their 30-10 win over Texas.

No. 5 Stanford took care of business against Arizona State 38-14, and will now meet Michigan State in the Rose Bowl.

With Army vs. Navy on Dec. 14 serving as the only regular-season game left on tap, it’s time to say goodbye to the 2013 college football season. It is a bittersweet ending, as we can now say hello to bowl season now that we have the latest BCS rankings in hand.
