After Week 12 of the college football season, we pretty much know all we need to know about the landscape of the season.

Florida State and Alabama still seem as if they’re on a collision course for Pasadena where they will battle head-to-head for the national championship. Now, though, the question is, which one is better? Florida State won in dominating fashion yet again, while the Tide struggled a bit against an inferior opponent in Mississippi State.

Of everything that happened in Week 12, the major shakeup occurred when the Stanford Cardinal were upended by the resurgent USC Trojans inside the Coliseum. After getting the benefit of the doubt from so many, especially after beating second-ranked Oregon, the Cardinal have now lost their shot at any sort of national championship contention.

So, where does everyone sit after Week 12?

Well, the AP rankings have just been released, so let’s take a look:
