Week 13 BCS standings: Fresno State has week off, remains on track for BCS bowl game

Fresno State had the week off which means their position in the BCS is likely to not change.

The latest BCS were released Sunday night and there were changes since previously No. 4 Stanford was upset by USC on Saturday night. The top-10 has a new look with that Stanford loss, but outside of the top-10 the movement was very little.

Fresno State ended up dropping one spot to be ranked No. 15 in the latest BCS standings. The Bulldogs were jumped by Michigan State who defeated Nebraska this past week and were just 16 last week. Fresno State's BCS average this week came in at .413 which is a drop from last week where they were .432.

Fresno State was off this past week and they did drop in the coaches and Harris polls, however in the latter poll the Bulldogs actually gained a couple of votes despite dropping in the rankings. Total votes is more important than place so while the drop is unfortunate it does not really hurt Fresno State.

The biggest challenger for Fresno State is Northern Illinois and they took care of business in defeating Ball State this past Wednesday. Central Florida is still in position to cause Fresno State and Northern Illinois trouble if they pass those two schools and neither reaches the top-12. However, that seems unlikely to happen but if somehow Central Florida slips up then Louisville could possibly be a threat, but they are too low in the rankings to leap frog the pair of non-BCS teams.

Here are the complete BCS standings with computer averages.
