The fifth set of Bowl Championship Series standings were released on Sunday night, and fans of Kansas State and Oregon have to be excited that the Wildcats and the Ducks occupy the top two spots in the newest rankings.
With Alabama’s loss to Texas A&M, Bill Snyder’s squad claimed the top spot following its win over TCU. Meanwhile, the Ducks are No. 2 after defeating Cal on the road. Kansas State and Oregon would play for the BCS national championship if the season ended today.
Fellow unbeaten Notre Dame is on the outside looking in right now, and the Fighting Irish will not move up in the rankings unless one of the top two teams loses.
Here is the BCS formula — how these rankings came about: Harris Interactive Poll (1/3) + USA Today Coaches’ Poll (1/3) + Computer rankings (1/3). The BCS national championship game in Miami will pit the top two teams in the final BCS standings, which will be released the Sunday after the regular season ends.
