BCS Rankings: Week 13 Predictions

Week 12 is in the books for college football and the Week 13 BCS Rankings are due out later tonight. There isn't going to be any change at the top, as the Oregon Ducks and Auburn Tigers both had bye weeks and will remain at one and two in the standings. There could be other changes in the top five, though.

TCU, who are still ranked fourth in the AP poll, might end up dropping in the BCS to fourth. The Horned Frogs had the week off this week while Boise State, who were fourth in the BCS last week but ahead of TCU in both the AP and USA Today polls, shut out Fresno State 51-0 on Friday night. Further, Virginia Tech defeated a ranked Miami team and clinched their spot in the ACC title game. This is important since it makes Boise's win over the Hokies in Week 1 look more impressive. If the Broncos don't pass the Horned Frogs this week, they'll have another opportunity next week when they take on a ranked Nevada opponent.

The LSU Tigers may drop out of the top five as well. LSU barely defeated Ole Miss last night while Wisconsin had an impressive victory over Michigan. Wisconsin is now ranked fifth in the Week 13 AP poll and it's feasible they could leapfrog LSU in the BCS.

Nebraska after losing to Texas A&M will fall out of the top 10, opening the door for Alabama or Michigan State to get into the top 10.
