The Week 12 BCS Standings are out and the Boise State Broncos and the Stanford Cardinal took the biggest hits this week. However, the Broncos, who dropped from No. 5 to No. 10, are still in a position to get an at-large bid for a BCS bowl game. They would need TCU to lose at least one of their two remaining games (Colorado State, UNLV). The Broncos would then be co-champions of the Mountain West, making them eligible for a BCS game.
The Stanford Cardinal dropped from No. 4 to No. 9, but is also still positioned for a BCS bowl bid if they win out. Outside of those two moves, LSU and Oklahoma State stayed at Nos. 1 and 2. Alabama recovered from its loss to LSU by beating Mississippi State and emerged as the No. 3 team. Oregon took over the No. 4 spot vacated by Stanford after the Ducks beat the Cardinal on Saturday.
The 10-0 Houston Cougars are outside of the top 10 again, as they stay put at No. 11. Should Houston go undefeated and Boise State does not win a share of the Mountain West championship, the Cougars would receive a BCS bowl bid.
Here are the top 15 teams:
2. Oklahoma State
8. Virginia Tech
10. Boise State
12. South Carolina
13. Kansas State
15. Michigan State
