BCS Rankings, Week 10: ASU Climbs Two Spots To 19th

The Arizona St. Sun Devils continue their steady ascent up the BCS ladder after a routine pummeling of the Colorado Buffaloes. ASU is now up to 19th, the third best ranked Pac-12 team in the conference behind the Stanford Cardinal and the Oregon Ducks, both of whom have the best odds of making a BCS bowl come the final ranking.

Arizona State doesn't have many tests left on their schedule to boost their resume enough to win the at-large bid. The hardest game left on their schedule is probably the UCLA Bruins in what amounts to a de facto Pac-12 South title game. So it's not likely they will move up any higher on the computers. ASU's likeliest scenario to getting into the BCS is simple as can be; win the Pac-12 South, then upset the Pac-12 North winner to get to Pasadena. An at-large bid would require many more upsets, so we'll rule that scenario as highly unlikely right now.

Here is the release of the official rankings.

1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Oklahoma State
4. Stanford
5. Boise State
6. Oklahoma
7. Arkansas
8. Oregon
9. South Carolina
