The BCS Top 25 (Week 11): LSU Reigns, ‘Bama Falls to No. 3

LSU's special teams were crucial in the 9-6 win over Alabama. (AP Photo)

1. LSU
The Game of The Century? Probably not. It was definitely a classic though. Marquis Maze might beg to differ, but I was riveted.

2. Oklahoma State
If you combined LSU-Alabama and Oklahoma State-Kansas State, you would have had an average football game.

3. Alabama
We can’t possibly have a rematch in the BCS Championship, could we? What would that prove? When Oklahoma State loses to Oklahoma, will that open the door for Alabama to be No. 2, or will Oklahoma leap over them? Similarly, if Stanford beats Oregon, will they jump Alabama?

4. Stanford
Yes, they will. The Stanford-Oregon game this week is huge, but I still can’t get excited for it. Why must Andrew Luck must be so boringly efficient?

5. Boise State
I might have to give up on the dream of Boise State playing in the BCS Championship, at least until they join the Big East West.

6. Oklahoma
7. Oregon
8. Arkansas
9. Clemson
10. Virginia Tech
Dear Clemson and Virginia Tech, you don’t belong in the Top Ten. Please lose. Sincerely, the country.

11. Houston
12. Penn State
13. South Carolina
14. Kansas State
15. Georgia
With South Carolina’s loss it looks like Georgia will be the sacrificial lamb that faces LSU (or Alabama or Arkansas, but probably not) in the SEC Championship. It’s amazing how irrelevant the SEC East has felt this season. Even though it has very strong collection of teams, none of them are worthwhile.

16. Texas
17. Michigan State
18. Wisconsin
19. Nebraska
20. Auburn
If the Big Ten has any interest in consistency, they would switch names with the Big 12. At this point though, they’re not even that “big.” I think a change to the Little 12 is in order.

21. Georgia Tech
22. Southern Miss
23. Cincinnati
24. Michigan
25. Baylor
How about Baylor? They made it into the rankings despite not being ranked by humans. RG3 is so good he can trick computers into ranking his team.
