BCS standings 2013 news from Week 10 isn't positive for the Ohio State Buckeyes. In fact, the BCS standings in 2013 might point to the Buckeyes getting locked out of the national title game again. According to the updated rankings from Sunday (Oct. 27), Ohio State is the clear No. 4 team in the rankings without a lot of hope at moving up in future polls.
No. 1 Alabama from the SEC, No. 2 Oregon from the Pac-12, and No. 3 Florida State from the ACC seem to have the favor of the voters this year. All three schools are in a great position when it comes to qualifying for the national championship game, especially with big name opponents remaining on their respective schedules. That could work to the disadvantage of OSU moving forward.
Alabama still has No. 11 Auburn and No. 13 LSU to play in the regular season as well as possibly No. 9 Missouri in the SEC title game. If they win out, the Crimson Tide will clinch one of the slots, no matter how many other undefeated teams there are in college football. The only way they don't make it is if they get upset, but one loss might not even keep them out of that big game.
The Oregon Ducks have the most important game of their season (so far) on Nov. 7 against No. 5 Stanford. A win in that game would give the team a huge push, just like if the Florida State Seminoles can beat No. 7 Miami on Nov. 2. Those are key wins in college football this season, meaning either Oregon or FSU would play against Alabama in the title game.
This latest BCS standings 2013 news indicates that Ohio State still has an outside chance, but their schedule is doing the school no favors. The next three games on the schedule come against opponents with a combined record of 7-14 on the season. In the Big Ten, the three teams are a combined 1-8 so far. That's not going to get it done.
Heading into the Week 10 games, the real hope for the Buckeyes comes in the form of upsets. They will need two of the top three teams to get upset in the coming weeks just to have a chance to play for the championship.
