College Football Rankings Week 13: Projected BCS Standings

There were numerous close games on Saturday, but no big upsets at or near the top of the BCS standings. The highest-ranked team to lose was No. 8 Nebraska, who fell 9-6 to Texas A&M. After the college football polls are released tomorrow morning, expect there to be little change outside of perhaps No. 4 Boise State closing the gap with No. 3 TCU. In the Pac-10, the top-ranked Oregon Ducks had a bye week, and the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal blew out their rival Cal Bears on the road.

Here is a look at last week's BCS Top 15, which should see little movement at the top:

Rank School Result
1 Oregon (10-0) Bye
2 Auburn (11-0)
3 TCU (11-0)
4 Boise State (10-0)
beat Fresno St, 51-0
5 LSU (10-1)
beat Mississippi, 43-36
6 Stanford (10-1) beat Cal, 48-14
7 Wisconsin (10-1) beat Michigan, 48-28
8 Nebraska (9-2)
lost to No. 19 Texas A&M, 9-6
9 Ohio State (10-1) beat No. 20 Iowa, 20-17
10 Oklahoma State (10-1)    
beat Kansas, 48-14
11 Alabama (9-2)
beat Georgia St, 63-7
12 Michigan State (10-1) beat Purdue, 35-31
13 Arkansas (9-2) beat No. 21 Mississippi St, 38-31 (2OT)
14 Oklahoma (9-2) beat Baylor, 53-24
15 Missouri (9-2) beat Iowa St, 14-0

Expect Nebraska to move down below Arkansas after the Cornhuskers' second loss of the season. Both Oregon and Stanford seem in line for a BCS bowl bid, which would be the first time in eight seasons that the Pac-10 had two schools play in BCS bowl games. After the 2002 season, Washington State went to the Rose Bowl, while USC played in the Orange Bowl.

The official BCS standings will be released just after 5 p.m. PST Sunday on ESPN.
