BCS Standings: Oregon, Stanford Give Pac-10 Two Top-Six Teams For First Time Since 2007

The Stanford Cardinal got a huge win over a top 15 team on Saturday, beating the Arizona Wildcats 42-17 in Palo Alto, and on Sunday the Cardinal made a huge leap in the latest rankings. They moved up in the latest BCS standings from 13th to sixth, making a potential second BCS bid for the Pac-10 conference a distinct possibility.

Along with the top-ranked Oregon Ducks, the Pac-10 conference has two teams ranked in the top six of the BCS standings for the first time since 2007, when Arizona State and Oregon were in the top five. In fact, in the 98 weeks of the BCS standings, the Pac-10 has had two teams in the top six 18 times:

  • 2000 (Nov 25): No. 4 Washington, No. 6 Oregon St
  • 2000 (Dec. 2): No. 4 Washington, No. 6 Oregon St
  • 2002 (Nov. 30): No. 4 USC, No. 6 Washington St

  • 2004 (Dec. 4): No. 1 USC, No. 5 California
  • 2005 (Oct. 24): No. 2 USC, No. 6 UCLA
  • 2005 (Oct. 31): No. 1 USC, No. 5 UCLA
  • 2005 (Dec. 4): No. 1 USC, No. 5 Oregon
  • 2007 (Oct. 21): No. 4 Arizona St, No. 5 Oregon
  • 2007 (Oct. 28): No. 4 Arizona St, No. 5 Oregon
  • 2010 (Nov. 7): No. 1 Oregon, No. 6 Stanford
