First BCS Standings of 2012 Released: Bama and Florida Are 1 and 2

BY foxsports • October 14, 2012

The first BCS standings of 2012 look awfully familiar to the last BCS standings of 2012.

The SEC has the first two spots, Alabama is number one and Florida is number two.

Four of the top seven are SEC teams and LSU, significantly, is the highest rated one-loss team. Meaning that the Bayou Bengals, even with a loss at Florida, still would likely play for the national title if they won every game remaining on their schedule.

Looking at these rankings the same is probably true for South Carolina.

Yep, there's a very real chance of an all-SEC BCS title again.

In the meantime, the SEC has six of the top 12 teams in college football.

Which is just insane.

Remember last year when I was the first person to point out the possibility of an LSU-Bama rematch?

The SEC has even more routes to an all SEC title game this year than ever before.

If you want to break down the initial top 25 by conference here you go:

SEC -- 7 teams (six in the top 12)

Big 12 -- 7 teams (but just 1 in the top 12 to the SEC's six)

Pac 12 -- 4 teams

Big East -- 3 teams (4 if you count Boise State)

ACC -- 2 teams

Big Ten --  Zero teams, ouch
