The newest addition of the BCS Standings in college football were released tonight, and the Florida State Seminoles have rightfully gained their spot back at No. 2 after jumping Oregon.
After starting off in the first release of the standings at No. 2, Florida State was jumped by Oregon and moved back down to three.
But the Seminole’s 41-14 thrashing of Miami last night boosted them back into the second place spot and leave them just behind No. 1 ranked Alabama.
For Florida State, they have done everything necessary to be ranked this high and have even made a case with some to be the No. 1 overall team, ahead of the Crimson tide.
The Seminole’s are lead by superstar redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, who has been lights-out all season long and is also one of the leading candidates for the Heisman Trophy.
Add that in with a wealth of NFL-bound talent and two beat-downs of top-10 opponents in Clemson and Miami, it seems that Florida State is finally back to what the storied program once was.
The Seminole’s also control their destiny on the road to the national championship game. Their four remaining games on the season are against Wake Forrest, Syracuse, Idaho and rival Florida.
Meanwhile, for teams like Oregon and Ohio State, they will have to pray that the Seminoles or the Crimson Tide stumble at some point during the remainder of the season while also scoring major style points with the college football voters.
