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.
