BCS Rankings: Which AP Top 25 Teams Will Be Lower in the BCS Rankings?

0 of 5

    With two Top Five teams falling this weekend, there's going to be a major shakeup in the latest installment of the BCS rankings.

    Regardless of the week's results, the Top 25 polls don't always match up with the BCS standings. 

    Here are five teams that could be lower than their AP Top 25 ranking this week. 

No. 8 Stanford

1 of 5

    Timing is everything, and while the Cardinal lost to a very good Oregon Ducks team, both No. 9 Clemson and No. 10 Virginia Tech won this weekend. 

    All three teams have the same record, but in the BCS, it's what have you done for me lately?

    Don't be surprised if both the Tigers and Hokies leapfrog Stanford in the rankings.  

No. 10 Boise State

2 of 5

    Falling more than five spots for a close loss to a tough TCU team might be harsh, but it could happen.

    Just ask Wisconsin.

    When the Badgers lost to Michigan State on a last-second Hail Mary to fall from the ranks of the unbeaten, they dropped nine spots in the BCS. 

No. 12 Michigan State

3 of 5

    A win over a mediocre Iowa squad isn't going to be enough to move the Spartans near the Top 10 in the BCS. 

    Michigan State was No. 17 a week ago, and three of the four teams separating them from the No. 12 spot also won on Saturday. 

No. 19 TCU

4 of 5

    Luckily for TCU, Saturday's victory over Boise State was their National Championship Game.

    Despite a Rose Bowl victory last season and years of continued success, the Horned Frogs always tend to be overshadowed by the Broncos. 

    TCU should finally crack the BCS Top 25 this week, but it would be surprising to see them higher than No. 19. 

No. 23 Florida State

5 of 5

    Like TCU, Florida State should finally crack the BCS Top 25 this week after defeating Miami for their fifth straight win. 

    However, don't expect the 'Noles to be any higher than No. 23; No. 25 Baylor, No. 24 Michigan and No. 22 Southern Miss all won on Saturday.
