BCS standings Week 11 updates come out Sunday evening (Nov. 3). One question about these Week 11 BCS standings is if the 2013 rankings will continue to punish the Florida State Seminoles. In the updated polls from Sunday morning, Florida State is ranked No. 3 in both of them, despite crushing previously undefeated Miami on Saturday (Nov. 2).
The AP writers and the coaches both ranked Alabama No. 1, Oregon No. 2, and then FSU at No. 3. It now appears that the Seminoles have no chance to move up the rankings unless the Ducks or Crimson Tide get upset in the final weeks of the college football season. As FSU has now beaten its toughest competition on the schedule, moving up appears pretty impossible.
Ohio State, Baylor, and Stanford follow as the next three teams in both polls. In the AP Top 25, the rest of the top 10 is Auburn, Clemson, Missouri, and LSU in that order. The coaches disagree, with Clemson, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Auburn in that order. Oklahoma is only No. 12 in the AP poll, showing an obvious favoritism for the SEC schools.
So will the Week 11 BCS standings help out Florida State? That's an important question, because the school needs the computers to make sense of the mess that is currently the college football rankings. In addition to the top five undefeated teams in the country, Fresno State (No. 17 in both) and Northern Illinois (No. 20 Coaches; No. 22 AP) are the only other remaining undefeated schools.
