Jeff Sagarin's NCAA Football ratings are one of the six computer models the BCS uses to determine one-third of the BCS standings each week. In his Week 13 numbers, Sagarin has LSU, of course, at the top while the Alabama Crimson Tide flipped spots with the Oklahoma St. Cowboys to become the No. 2 team. The loss to the Iowa St. Cyclones didn't hurt the Cowboys with this computer.
The Stanford Cardinal moved down one spot from No. 10 to No. 11. The Boise St. Broncos took over the No. 10 spot after being No. 14 last week following the loss to the TCU Horned Frogs. They beat the San Diego St. Aztecs, 52-35, on Saturday to rebound from their loss. The Houston Cougars also gained this week by moving from No. 19 to No. 15. As long as they beat Tulsa on Friday and then win the conference championship game, the BCS should be calling for the Cougars this year.
Remember, when looking at the rankings, look at the column in red, "ELO_CHESS."
