BCS Watch: Week 12

I didn't want to continue with the BCS Watch after BSU lost this weekend. But later on I changed my mind and decided I might as well commit to it through the end of the season. Then the BCS standings were released and, by Jove, BSU is still a top 10 team. We should know better than to get our hopes up, but the possibility remains that the Broncos can receive an at-large invitation to a BCS bowl. Let's see how the rest of the season plays out, shall we? With that thought in mind, here's a look at the top 11 teams (since Houston continues to be undefeated and hold steady at #11), with a few simple points of comparison.
