Click HERE to see the BCS standings as of October 21, 2012. This is the second BCS ranking of the 2012 season.
A few of my observations from this week’s BCS rankings:
- Alabama remains in the number one spot overall, however, the Crimson Tide lost a first place vote in this weeks Harris poll (receiving 109 this week, while receiving 110 last week — total votes in Harris poll: 115).
- Florida remains number two overall, and the Gators pick up a first place vote in the Harris poll (having receiving no first place votes last week).
- Oregon drops from the number three spot in the BCS to number four, while Kansas State moves up from four to three. At number three, Kansas State ties its highest-ever BCS ranking from 1998.
- South Carolina drops from seventh place to thirteenth.
- Texas A&M drops from eighteen to twenty.
- Ohio makes its first ever appearance in the BCS ranked at number twenty four.
- Michigan and Wisconsin also appear in the BCS for the first time this season (2012).
