The AP top 10 is probably a little different than how the BCS top 10 will shake out, but let’s talk about some predictions for what we know at this point. The BCS rankings will be released at 8:30 EST this evening.
No. 2 Oregon Ducks
The UCLA win last night was incredibly large, not just the fact that they won but the impressive style in the second half in which they did it. The fact that UCLA was #12 should move Oregon back ahead for a week in the BCS, but they need to hope that OSU goes undefeated to give them another impressive victory to end the season.
Nov. 7 – @ #6 Stanford
Nov. 16 – Utah
Nov. 23 – @ Arizona
Nov. 30 – Oregon State
The Ducks should also route for either the UCLA Bruins or Arizona State Sun Devils to finish undefeated and give them a ranked opponent in the Pac-12 Championship game. I think their schedule is strong enough as-is that they’ll overtake Florida State, but if OSU, UCLA and ASU lose another game it’s really going to be too-close-to-call in those final BCS standings.
