BCS Standings Week 3 2012: Alabama and Kansas State

Week three of the BCS standings arrives with budding controversy, what else is new?

Alabama, Oregon, and Kansas State will all be favored to win every game remaining on their schedules and Notre Dame, fresh off an upset road win at Oklahoma, will be favored to win every remaining game with the exception of at USC.

So what happens if four teams from three major conferences and Notre Dame all finish undefeated?

Uh oh.

We don’t have a playoff until the 2014 season. In the meantime complete BCS chaos can still ensue.

And what if Oregon, Kansas State, and Notre Dame all lose?

If the Florida Gators won out they’d play Alabama — presuming the Tide rushes over LSU this weekend and the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC title game — despite not winning their own division.

Where have we seen that before?

Oy vey, what a mess.

1. Alabama .976

2. Kansas State .940

3. Notre Dame .915

4. Oregon .914

5. LSU .816

6. Georgia .775

7. Florida .760

8. South Carolina

9. Florida State

10. Louisville

11. Oregon State

12. Oklahoma

13. Clemson

14. Stanford

15. Mississippi State

16. Texas A&M

17. USC

18. Texas Tech

19. Boise State

20. Nebraska

21. West Virginia

22. Arizona

23. Texas

24. Oklahoma State

25. Louisiana Tech

The SEC has five of the top eight teams in the country, which is flat-out unbelievable. 

By conference in the top 25:

SEC: 7 teams

Big 12: 6 teams (just 1 in top ten)

Pac 12: 5 teams

ACC: 2 teams

Big Ten: 1 team

Big East: 1 team

Think the SEC dominance is crazy now, imagine an eight team playoff based on these standings. #1 Alabama would play #8 South Carolina, #2 Kansas State would play #7 Florida, #3 Notre Dame would play #6 Georgia, and #4 Oregon would play #5 LSU.

I’d love to see the Vegas lines on these games.

Could you end up with an all SEC final four?

It wouldn’t surprise me at all.
