Week 14 NCAA Football BCS Rankings: LSU-Alabama Rematch Seems Inevitable

The penultimate version of the BCS rankings are out. LSU is the unsurprising runaway at No. 1, while Alabama seems to be their inevitable date in the National Championship.

The BCS has come out with the Week 14 edition of their 2011 NCAA Football rankings, and a rematch of the Alabama-LSU game seems to be an inevitability for the National Championship, assuming of course that LSU is able to handle Georgia in the SEC Championship this weekend.

But for a little perspective on if Oklahoma State has any shot to dethrone Alabama as the No. 2 team in the BCS, here is SB Nation's Samuel Chi.

4. How likely is Oklahoma State to jump Alabama anyway?

Not likely. The scenario is different from 2006 in that OSU is currently behind not just Alabama but also Stanford and Virginia Tech in both polls. It will require a huge change of heart from a majority of those voters to push OSU all the way up to No. 2 and forget that it lost to a 6-5 Iowa State team. As of this week, that sentiment isn't there.

Here are the complete BCS rankings, via SB Nation.
