Statement from BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock:
“Three undefeated teams remain in the BCS Standings, and they’re at the top of the poll. But as everyone knows by now, and as we saw this weekend, anything can happen in college football. So let’s expect the unexpected over these last three incredible weeks of the greatest regular season in sports. I’ll be watching and know you will, too.”

• Schools debuting in 2012 BCS Standings: No. 25 Washington.
• Dropped out of BCS Standings: No. 21 Mississippi State, No. 24 Northwestern; No. 25 Toledo.
