Final 2012 BCS Standings: Gators finish No. 3, Seminoles at No. 12

Chris Trotman

The final BCS standings of the year have been released and two teams in Florida find themselves in the top 25.

With all regular season games officially in the books, the final BCS standings of the year have been released and both the Florida Gators and Florida State Seminoles find themselves not only ranked, but towards the top.

While Notre Dame and Alabama finish the season at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively, the Florida Gators will be kicking themselves for just missing out on the chance to play in the BCS National Championship Game as the team just missed the cut, coming in at No. 3 on the season.

The Gators will be the second and final SEC team to play in a BCS bowl game this year, despite six SEC teams finding themselves in the top 10.

Meanwhile, the Florida State Seminoles avoided an upset to win the ACC title game on Saturday, improving the team's ranking to No. 12 in the nation instead of a potential free fall in the standings.
