Examining the first BCS standings of the 2012 college football season.

The first BCS standings of the year have been released. Four Pac-12 teams are in the top 25, including three in the top 11. As for the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona St. Sun Devils, neither team made the list despite solid starts to the season.

The Oregon Ducks were the top-ranked team from the Pac-12, coming in at No. 3 in the BCS behind only Alabama and Florida. ASU faces Oregon next weekend in Tempe. The undefeated Oregon St. Beavers come in at No. 8, while the USC Trojans are two spots behind them at No. 10. The Stanford Cardinal are ranked 20th.

The top 10 of the BCS goes like this: Alabama, Florida, Oregon, Kansas State, Notre Dame, LSU, South Carolina, Oregon State, Oklahoma and USC. The full standings can be found here, courtesy of SB Nation.

It is important to remember it is still early in the season. Just because a team isn't ranked as highly as one would like doesn't mean they don't have plenty of opportunities to move up in the standings.
