BCS standings 2013 news from Week 8 is horrible for No. 8 Louisville after a loss to UCF. The first BCS standings for 2013 come out Sunday (Oct. 20), with this loss for Louisville from Friday night (Oct. 18) taking the team out of the running for a title game. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater likely isn't heading to a major bowl game now either, as the AAC is not going to nab an at-large slot any longer.
The Week 8 college football schedule is the last chance for schools to make an impression before the initial rankings come out, so there are some really important games. The No. 3 Clemson vs. No. 5 Florida State game is one of them, with the chance for Clemson to really move up with a win against an undefeated opponent. Meanwhile No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon, and No. 4 Ohio State all play against unranked opponents looking for an upset. They will gain nothing from wins on Saturday, but their opponents could make a big splash with road victories.
Two other important games in regard to the BCS standings 2013 news from this weekend are No. 9 UCLA vs. No. 13 Stanford and No. 7 Texas A&M vs. No. 24 Auburn. UCLA is the only team other than Oregon left undefeated in the Pac-12, but a win here could boost the Bruins into the top seven. In the other game, the Aggies and Tigers are trying to prove they belong in the picture still, especially because they are not out of contention for an SEC title this year.
