Revised final BCS standings released

12/6/2010

The National Football Foundation today released revised final BCS standings. The revision was necessitated by a miscalculation in the Colley computer rankings, where the Appalachian State-Western Illinois FCS playoff game was omitted from the final Colley rankings. Mr. Colley discovered this error in a subsequent review and informed the BCS group earlier today. The net result of the error is that Boise State goes from No. 11 to No. 10 and LSU goes from No. 10 to No. 11 in the revised BCS final standings as shown below.

"I was deeply disturbed when I learned about this today. This error should not have happened and is unacceptable. The final standings have been corrected. Fortunately, it had no effect on any team's eligibility for the BCS games. But the simple fact that it could have means this issue will be near the top of the agenda for the conference commissioners' annual review next spring," said Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the BCS.

The final standings are as follows:

1. Auburn

2. Oregon

3. TCU

4. Stanford

5. Wisconsin

6. Ohio State

7. Oklahoma

8. Arkansas

9. Michigan State

10. Boise State

20. South Carolina

21. Mississippi State

22. West Virginia

23. Florida State
