The BCS rankings will come out later tonight, but we have an early projection from SB Nation and it looks fairly accurate, so let’s take a look at what they have put together.
Alabama isn’t going anywhere after that gutty win last night. We can put them in the BCS title.
What a great week for Florida State. As early as could be on Friday morning they knew they had the inside track to a national championship appearance and an easy win on Saturday. The way the rival Gators looked over the weekend against Vandy, it’s looking like their only true remaining test will be the ACC Championship game. Projection or not, the Noles will be at No. 2.
Ohio State won’t overtake FSU without a Seminole loss, but definitely took a step forward this week. The match-up with Michigan still looms, but the Wolverines don’t look as menacing as they did two weeks ago.
Stanford needs help in the BCS championship race but their sights are on a Pac-12 title and a Rose Bowl berth now anyway. Baylor’s schedule is their biggest enemy, but they have some better opportunities to raise their profile coming up and the win over Oklahoma was huge.
The Oregon Ducks failed themselves, and regardless of projections they need a lot of help. It is not where the Ducks were hoping to be. Speaking of hoping, the Ducks are hitting the bandwagon campaign trail right about now, mostly USC’s vs Stanford so that they regain their shot at a Pac-12 championship.
Clemson, Mizzou and Auburn all look to be on the outside looking in, but a BCS berth would be a huge consolation prize.
