BCS: Alabama still in prime position
November, 3, 2013

Alabama might have been off last week, but the Crimson Tide remained in prime position in the latest BCS standings.
For the third straight week, Alabama checked in at No. 1, although Florida State replaced Oregon in the No. 2 spot after a 41-14 win over No. 7 Miami.
The best news for the Crimson Tide is that they really don't need any help. In other words, if they keep winning, they're going to be in the VIZIO BCS National Championship Game with a chance to win their third straight national title.

Even though Alabama was No. 1 in both of the human polls used in the BCS standings, the Tide did drop to No. 2 in the computer rankings. Florida State moved up to No. 1 in the computer rankings.
Alabama could potentially face three more teams in the top 15 of the BCS standings, which would only bolster the Tide's standing as the No. 1 team if they can win all three.
Missouri and Auburn both jumped into the top 10. Mizzou, coming off a 31-3 rout of Tennessee, shot up to No. 8, while Auburn moved to No. 9 after a 35-17 win at Arkansas.
Five of the top six teams in this week's BCS standings are unbeaten, so the odds remain long that a one-loss SEC team could make it into the BCS National Championship Game this season.
