BCS Rankings Week 13: Unbelievably, Florida, Alabama, Texas Still On Top
This may come as a shocker to some, but not much has changed this week among the top teams in the BCS race.
That was meant sarcastically, as their schedules almost guaranteed the six undefeated teams would remain unbeaten.
The top three teams manhandled their opposition, as expected. Florida beat up on a team near the bottom of the Sun Belt Conference standings, Alabama shutout an FCS school some people didn't even know existed, and Texas smacked around the last place team in the Big 12 North.
Two undefeated, mid-level conference teams also put on a show this weekend. TCU crushed a weak Wyoming team and Boise State humiliated Utah State on national television. The other undefeated team, Cincinnati, had a bye week.
Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh also had a bye week, and remained unchanged in the rankings.
Unfortunately, LSU did not get the memo on how to schedule late season games. Mississippi upset the Tigers over the weekend, 25-23, dropping LSU down considerably in this week's BCS rankings.
Ohio State won its rivalry game over Michigan with ease, and now eagerly await the winner of this week's Oregon State-Oregon game. It took Oregon two overtimes to beat a tough Arizona team, but the Ducks pulled it out and took over LSU's spot in this week's BCS rankings.
Since both of Oregon's losses this year have been on the road, don't expect the Ducks to lose at home to the Beavers with the Rose Bowl on the line.
Iowa, Oklahoma State, and Penn State all moved up this week after convincing victories, and all look very intriguing to BCS bowl scouts due to the schools' well-traveled fan bases.
Sixteen very viable teams are still in contention for the 10 BCS bowl spots and there is a lot of football left to play. That said, barring any late season brain farts by top tier teams, here is a best-guess BCS Bowl scenario prediction:
