2012 BCS standings: Stanford in top 10, San Jose State cracks top 25

Stephen Dunn

The Stanford Cardinal are ranked eighth in the latest BCS standings, while the San Jose State Spartans are 25th overall.

Two Bay Area teams are in the top 25 in the current BCS standings. One is an old reliable; the other is a surprise!

The Stanford Cardinal are ranked No. 8 overall in the current BCS poll. This is the second straight week the team has been spotted at the eight spot, as it is currently considered the second-best of the two-loss teams behind 10-2 LSU.

A win in the Pac-12 championship game this weekend could lift them over LSU (and possibly Oregon) to move them to the sixth or seventh spot.

Stanford is coming off a convincing win against UCLA. The Cardinal and the Bruins will meet in the Pac-12 championship game this Friday night, with the right to go to the Rose Bowl on the line.

A new entry is the San Jose St. Spartans, who made their inaugural appearance in the BCS after finishing second in the WAC. San Jose State is coming off a win over Louisiana Tech last week, and at 10-2 have made great strides under head coach Mike MacIntyre.

Here are the latest BCS standings via SB Nation.
