BCS Rankings Week 12: Oregon Moves To No. 4, Close To Locking Up Rose Bowl

Saturday's game between the Oregon Ducks and the Stanford Cardinal was destined to have major BCS ramifications. Now that the official Week 12 BCS standings have been released, Oregon's victory over Stanford proved to be nothing but good news for the Ducks.

Oregon now stands at No. 4 in the updated BCS rankings, behind LSU, Oklahoma State and Alabama, respectively. Stanford falls all the way to No. 9, and now finds their bowl game hopes rapidly fading.

Given the schedule the rest of the way, the Ducks are tantalizingly close to locking up the Pac-12 slot in the Rose Bowl. However, if Oklahoma State or Alabama suffer losses, it's possible that Oregon could end up sliding into the National Championship Game.
