BCS Rankings: Week 12 Standings Should Have Oregon Soaring Once More

The BCS rankings for Week 12 won't be released until tonight's BCS Countdown airs on ESPN, but we've got a pretty good inkling of where the four remaining undefeated Football Bowl Subdivision teams will end up. Just check the Week 11 BCS standings.

Our BCS expert's projected BCS rankings for Week 12 have Oregon on top, followed by Auburn, TCU, Boise State, and LSU. That would be the same top five from last week's BCS standings, and is essentially the full list of BCS National Championship Game contenders.

It's also evidence of how static the BCS rankings should be after a week of close calls and few losses, according to our expert:

This week was one of the most static in the BCS standings I have ever seen. One has to go to 13th-ranked Iowa to find the highest ranked team to lose. Of the six top 25 teams that lost, three lost to another top 25 team. One lost to ineligible, but non-trivial USC. The highest-ranked team to play a ranked opponent was 11th-ranked Alabama.
