2012 BCS Standings released, Week 11: Oregon jumps Notre Dame; Alabama No. 1

US PRESSWIRE

The Oregon Ducks jumped Notre Dame in the BCS rankings, but remain behind Kansas State. As of now, the Wildcats would play Alabama, which survived a Saturday scare, in the BCS National Championship Game.

The Week 11 BCS rankings are out and while the threat of a large shakeup loomed at different points on Saturday night, Alabama remained at the top. Both Notre Dame and Alabama survived scares, leaving the top relatively intact, at least as far as the teams involved. Notre Dame needed overtime and plenty of drama to stay unbeaten, while Alabama used a last-minute drive to brush aside LSU.

Oregon, however, made a statement on Saturday night, putting aside its toughest competition so far, USC, by a 62-51 margin. Kansas State handled its business as well, downing Oklahoma State 44-30. But it was the Ducks' win, coupled with Notre Dame's shaky showing against Pitt, that had Oregon fans wondering if this week was finally the week their team would move up in the rankings.

The Ducks were able to jump Notre Dame, which fell to No. 4, but remain behind No. 2 Kansas State. The Ducks are .015 points behind the Wildcats, and both teams trail Alabama, which is the dominant No. 1.
