Major Shake-ups from No. 9-25 in Latest BCS Standings

Sunday, November 15, 2009

There was no movement in the top eight slots of the latest BCS Standings as all eight, including the six remaining undefeated teams, won on Saturday. Florida remains No. 1 followed by Alabama and Texas. TCU stays at No. 4 with Cincinnati at No. 5 and Boise State at No. 6. Georgia Tech is the top-ranked one-loss team at No. 7, while two-loss LSU (with losses only to No. 1 Florida and No. 2 Alabama) is at No. 8. 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.

Pittsburgh moved up three spot to No. 9 after defeating Notre Dame to improve to 9-1, while Ohio State's defeat of Iowa lifted the Buckeyes into the top-10.

The biggest jump of the week came from Oklahoma State which moved from No. 19 all the way up to No. 12 and back into the mix for a BCS bid. The Cowboys defeated Texas Tech, 24-17, and benefited from losses by the 14-17 teams as well as USC (now No.18) and Iowa (now No. 13).

This weekend's action is lacking in BCS showdowns. The top game as far as BCS implications is probably between two unranked teams as Kansas State and Nebraska play in a game that will likely decide the Big 12 North champion - giving that team an opportunity to defeat the Big 12 South champ and advance to the Fiesta Bowl. No. 8 LSU travels to Ole Miss for a appealing match-up - though the Tigers are likely out of the BCS picture if Alabama and Florida remain undefeated (only two teams from a conference can be selected for BCS bids). No. 10 Ohio State, which has already clinched the Big Ten title, plays at Michigan in a key rivalry game - though that rivalry has lost some luster with the Wolverines losing six straight to FBS foes. The only ranked teams playing are No. 25 Cal taking on red-hot No. 17 Stanford (which jumped from unranked this week) in the 112th edition of The Big Game.
