Top 10 BCS Standinds 7.0
A great week 11 of the 2012 college football season is in the books and we finally saw the number one team in the nation, Alabama, go down in defeat! Facing a tough task against the newest member of the SEC, Texas A&M, the Crimson Tide fell short to the Aggies, 29-24, after they intercepted their second A.J. McCarron pass of the game on 4th & Goal with under a 2:00 minutes to play in the end zone. McCarron hadn’t thrown an INT all year but threw two in this game and that’s what appeared to be the difference. Alabama is no longer undefeated and we are left with three undefeated teams now and perhaps a clearer picture as to what two teams will be playing in the BCS National Championship game. The first undefeated team, Kansas State, defeated TCU 23-10. The second undefeated team, Oregon, blew out California 59-17. And finally, the third and final undefeated team, Notre Dame, defeated Boston College 21-6. So now only three undefeated teams remain, and each team has two remaining games, so there is still time for one more team to slip up and lose so there is hopefully no controversy as to which two teams should play in the title game.
