Bama is now #4 behind Notre Dame • Schools debuting in 2012 BCS Standings: No. 25 Washington. • Dropped out of BCS Standings: No. 21 Mississippi State, No. 24 Northwestern; No. 25 Toledo. • Kansas State makes its first-ever appearance at No. 1 in the BCS Standings. The Wildcats are the first Big 12 team to hold the No. 1 spot in the BCS Standings since Oklahoma on Oct. 17, 2010. • Teams occupying the No. 1 position in Week Five of the BCS Standings have become BCS champions four times, including the first three years of the Standings. They include Tennessee (1998), Florida State (1999), Oklahoma (2000), and LSU (2007). • The SEC becomes the first conference in BCS history to have six schools ranked in the top 10: No. 4 Alabama, No. 5 Georgia, No. 6 Florida, No. 7 LSU, No. 8 Texas A&M, and No. 9 South Carolina. The conference breaks its own record set earlier this year when it placed five schools in the top 10. • No. 1 Kansas State and No. 2 Oregon end the SEC’s 19-week streak of having a team in the top two positions in the BCS Standings, dating back to Oct. 17, 2010. • No. 8 Texas A&M boasts its highest ranking and first top 10 appearance in the BCS Standings since Dec. 6, 1998. • No. 17 UCLA has reached its highest ranking since its appearance at No. 16 on December 4, 2005.
