2013 BCS Standings: Oregon Ducks 3rd after Week 8, just behind Florida State

Steve Dykes

The first BCS Standings of the year were released tonight, and the Ducks sit at #3, in great position to make the BCS Championship Game.

The first BCS Standings of the year have been released, and right now it's looking like a 3-team race for the National Championship.

Alabama takes the top spot, holding down the top spot in the poll, but only second in the computer rankings. Florida State is second, with a #1 computer ranking giving them a .0028 point edge over Oregon.

While many Duck fans will PANIC at this news, today's standings confirm what we've suspected for a while. If Oregon wins out, it will be nearly assured that they'll pass Florida State and play in the BCS Championship game. Oregon is a strong #2 in the polls, and have room to improve in the computers. The Pac-12 is strong this year, and the Ducks have one of the toughest remaining schedules remaining in the country. They will move up to 3rd at worst, and every point they close over FSU will give the Ducks an edge.

Florida State had their biggest win of the year in their biggest game of the year last night, and couldn't make up any significant ground in the polls. Oregon once again dominated another conference foe, and while it would have been nice to see a larger margin at the end of the game, Oregon's consistent play over the past few years has earned them the benefit of the doubt from pollsters. Unless something drastic happens, the Ducks will move in front of Florida State very soon.

It's great for the Ducks to be in this position, but there are many, many tough games left. The Ducks will need to bring it every single week to get through the rest of the schedule unscathed. GO DUCKS!
