BCS Rankings: Nebraska Cornhuskers Fall Behind Missouri Tigers

New, 3 comments

The Missouri Tigers lost to the Nebraska Cornhuskers a few weeks ago but they still hold the advantage in the BCS Standings. the Tigers come in at No. 14 while the Huskers are No. 15. That's gotta be frustrating for Nebraska, who plays Colorado this week. If Nebraska loses, and Mizzou wins, then the Tigers will enter the BCS Big 12 Championship game. And, just as important, for some fans at least, Nebraska won't be winning a Big 12 title on their way out. Of course, all that happens only if Nebraska loses next week to Colorado, which is very unilkely.

Oregon, Auburn, TCU, Boise State and LSU remain at the top followed by Standford, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Michigan State. Nebraska was the highest ranked Big 12 last week but their loss to Texas A&M drops them and that honor now goes to Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma comes in at No. 13, one spot ahead of Missouri and two spots ahead of Nebraska. The team that beat Nebraska -- Texas A&M -- comes in at No. 17.

The BCS rankings have been pretty fair to the Missouri Tigers all season -- probably a little more fair than the AP or USA Today Coaches' poll -- and it appears they won't jump up much more than where they are now.

Here are the full BCS rankings.
