The first of two college football weekends that were supposed to separate the men from the boys is over and the top of the Week 11 BCS standings are just as complex and tense as the games on the field. Florida State dismantled Miami to eliminate other undefeated team, but there are still five and only the Week 11 slate of games really offers any chance to change that.
For starters, Florida State reclaimed the No. 2 spot since Oregon was on a bye. The Ducks have a chance to cement their spot in the national championship with a win over Stanford, but if Marcus Mariota and company handle their business in that game, all bets are off.
Alabama also will face its toughest test of the season when LSU visits Tuscaloosa on Saturday night, but if Nick Saban’s squad dominates the way it does every week, we’ll still have a ton of unanswered questions heading into the home stretch of the season.
Lord knows Ohio State will be undefeated since the Buckeyes still have no real test left on their schedule, so Urban Meyer’s overrated team will cruise to a second 12-0 campaign. Now Ohio State does not deserve a spot in the title game, but if Alabama and/or Oregon lose this week, the Buckeyes will annoyingly start crying as the team that gets left out.
Now of course Baylor is the team that’s getting overlooked in all of this, but if Oregon, Alabama and Florida State are all undefeated, the Bears will get no love and no one will really complain about that. As for the carousel of undefeated team, the best is yet to come.
