BCS standings notes

A few quick notes for you on this week's BCS standings:

  • Virginia Tech is in the top 5 of the BCS standings for the first time since 2007.

  • It is the Hokies' 21st week all-time in the top 5 -- the third-most of any current ACC school (Miami 30, FSU 25).

  • Of all of the teams to drop in the standings this week, Clemson was the biggest loser:

Clemson: -10 ... 7 to 17

Oregon: -6 ... 4 to 10

Southern Miss: -6 ... 20 to NR

Nebraska: -5 ... 16 to 21

There's no question the SEC has a stranglehold on the standings, but with three ranked teams, the ACC is holding its own:

SEC: 6

Big Ten: 5

Big 12: 5

ACC: 3

Pac 12: 2

MWC: 2

Conference USA: 1

Independent: 1

Big East: 0
