Pac-12 BCS standings reaction
By Ted Miller
» BCS standings reaction: ACC | Big 12 | Big East | Big Ten | Pac-12 | SEC | Non-AQ
The Pac-12 went from being a player to a spectator in the BCS standings.
Stanford is sixth and Oregon 10th in the BCS standings released Sunday. The SEC has the top three spots: LSU at No. 1, Alabama at No. 2, and Arkansas at No. 3.
Stanford is fourth in the Harris poll, fifth in the coaches poll and ninth with the computers. The Cardinal has a high rank of four and a low of 14 with the computers.
Oregon is nine in both human polls. It's 11th with the computers, with a high of sixth and low of 15th.
One thing to watch: If Stanford can get to No. 4 in the final BCS standings, it can earn a guaranteed berth as an at-large team. The Cardinal are a good bet to get an at-large berth in any event, but a guarantee -- according to BCS selection procedure -- is never a bad thing to have.
