BCS Rankings Projections, Week 12: Houston Controls Their BCS Destiny

Heading into this weekend the Houston Cougars did not control their own BCS fate due that they were stuck behind fellow non-AQ Boise St. Broncos in the standings. Houston easily defeated the Tulane Green Wave on Thursday night and were needing a Boise State loss to the TCU Horned Frogs to have a shot at the BCS. Houston got their wish as Boise State lost to TCU on Saturday, so Houston now controls their own destiny for a BCS bowl game if they can win out.

Even though in the latest Week 12 BCS projections it is likely that Houston will be ranked behind Boise State, but for a non-AQ team to earn an automatic spot for the BCS a conference championship is required as well as being ranked in the top-12 of the final BCS standings. Houston is expected to be No. 11 once the BCS standings are released this evening.

Here are the Week 12 BCS projections:

1. LSU
2. Oklahoma State
3. Alabama
4. Oregon
5. Oklahoma
6. Arkansas
7. Stanford
8. Clemson
9. Boise State
10. Virginia Tech
11. Houston
12. South Carolina
13. Georgia
14. Michigan State
15. Kansas State.
