With Oregon, Auburn and TCU off this past week and with Boise State shutting out Fresno State Friday night, there will be little movement from the BCS. The only top 10 team to lose was Nebraska who lost to Texas A&M in an offensive challenged 9-6 game.
Boise State will have moved a little closer to TCU, but most likely will still be in the fourth spot. A win for Boise State next week over a top 20 Nevada team coupled with TCU playing one of the worst teams in college football in New Mexico should be enough to give Boise State the automatic BCS bid, and have them first in line for the BCS title game if Auburn or Oregon slip up.
The Big 10 title race looks to be decided by the final BCS standings since all three teams: Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan State all have winnable games. The only game with real upset potential is the Michigan and Ohio State game. So, if all three win out it looks like Ohio State will be heading to Pasadena, Calif. for the Rose Bowl.
Here are the projected BCS standings for week 13:
- Boise State
- Ohio State
- Oklahoma State
- Michigan State
As always the official BCS standings will be released on ESPN at 6:15 p.m. mountain time.
