Just Three Losses by Top 25 as BCS Standings Remain Steady

Sunday, November 22, 2009

For the second week in a row, the top seven in the BCS Standings remained the same as five of the teams had blowout wins and two had bye weeks. The only loss in the top-10 was No. 8 LSU getting upended by Ole Miss, 25-23. Florida and Alabama, already slated to meet in the SEC Championship, remain No. 1 and No. 2 while Texas, headed to the Big 12 title game is No. 3. TCU, Cincinnati and Boise State, all undefeated round out the top six. Georgia Tech, headed to the ACC title game against Clemson, remains at No. 7. Oregon, after its overtime victory over Arizona, jumped from No. 11 to No. 8, while Pitt and Ohio State remain at No. 9 and No. 10, respectively. The top teams in the final BCS Standings, to be released on Sunday, Dec. 6, will meet in the BCS National Championship game to be played on Jan. 7 in Pasadena, Calif.

LSU had the biggest drop with its loss to Ole Miss; the Tigers dropped from No. 8 to No. 15, while the Rebels enter the standings at No. 25. Clemson, which clinched a slot in the ACC Championship game also jumped five slot, from No. 23 to No. 18.

This weekend's action key game is No. 10 Oregon against No. 16 Oregon State in the annual "Civil War" - the winner earns the Pac-10's automatic bid to the Rose Bowl. No. 12 Oklahoma State travels to Oklahoma in a crucial game. The Cowboys likely need a win to remain in the hunt for a BCS bid, but Oklahoma, despite five losses, has a 29-game home winning streak. No. 6 Boise State hosts Nevada in a key challenge as the Wolfpack has an eight-game winning streak by an average of 29.0 points per game. The top two teams in the standings also close their regular seasons with key rivalry games as No. 1 Florida hosts Florida State and No. 2 Alabama travels to Auburn for the Iron Bowl.
