2013 BCS Standings: Week 11 rankings released, Florida State Seminoles jump Oregon Ducks

As crazy as it is to believe, 10 weeks of the 2013 college football season have been played and the battle to see who will wind up in Pasadena playing for the national championship is quickly coming down to the wire.

While the past few weeks gave us some landscape-changing upsets, Week 10 was rather quiet on the shake-up front. While the Florida State Seminoles handed the seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes a 41-14 beating, that wasn’t all that surprising. That was the type of victory many expected from that showdown.

But, with the Oregon Ducks being on a bye. was that victory enough to push the ‘Noles back ahead of the Ducks and get them back in the driver’s seat to a trip to Pasadena at the number two slot, where they were when the initial standings were released?

Well, the BCS standings have just been released, so let’s take a look:

    Why cant the bias computers take into account that Miami was overrated. That they squeaked wins in the last few weeks and were at best a top 25 team in the low numbers. The ACC is far inferior to the Pac12 and will have more teams in bowl games when all is said and done. Oregon by all accounts should be number #1. since a liked opponent(Tennessee) was beaten by more points(35 vs 25) that Alabama also played. By having Oregon lower then the Seminoles in ACC is surely east coast bias. Mark my word the NCAA will fold someday with the Pac 12, Big !2, MWAC, and Big 10 forming their owe association.

      Dude shut up it’s the last year of the BCS! And the Pac-12 isn’t better than the ACC. They’re both inferior to the SEC so they’re really on the same level regardless. The only conference that’s close to the SEC and the Big 12 and that’s still far off. Just because the Pac-12 is starting to get better doesn’t mean they really are a better conference. And one like opponent doesn’t make a difference. If you want to look at the better state. FSU has beaten 2 top 10 teams this year in Clemson and Miami. Whether Miami was overrated or not doesn’t make a difference. FSU currently hold better ranked team wins than Oregon, but Bama will stay #1 until someone beats them. If they don’t lose no one else will claim first. So shut up!

      so what you’re saying is that because Oregon runs up the score on inferior opponents, they are better than the 2 time defending national champions? Yeah makes a lot of sense.. but if you got your numbers right you’d see what I mean.. Alabama beat Tenn by 35 and Oregon won by 45. At that point does it really matter, or are you just overcompensating for a lackluster schedule?

    • Brett Summers

      How about you play LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn and Ole Miss and then tell us you’re better than Alabama. Saban absolutely hates running up the score on other teams. He will put his 4th string team on the field if he has to. He’s done it several times before, just ask Arkansas. Face a real defense or actually beat a ranked SEC team before you pretend to be good.

      There is no doubt that East coast bias exists. You never see Oregon on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox, only on ESPN. In fact, I would guess that most people don’t even realize that Oregon has a top team. They rarely if ever receive any national news.
