NCAA Football Update: BCS Rankings 2010 Week 12

The latest Bowl Championship Series (BCS) rankings had been released and the top four undefeated teams still remains to be on top of the BCS rankings. There are several upsets during week 11 and these are major upsets to teams who had been considered to be dominant in those games.

Before the upsets let us talk about one of the greatest performance in team’s 95-year football history. Wisconsin Badgers scored 83 points in their game against Indiana, 83-20. Wisconsin (9-1, 5-1) put up the most points by an FBS school this season and matched the highest scoring total by a team in a Big Ten conference game since Ohio State’s 83-21.

Now for the upsets, Northwestern made their first victory over a ranked team this season by defeating Iowa, 21-17. An important interception by Northwester cost Iowa the game and their rankings in the BCS. The Hawkeyes had an early strong play in the fourth quarter but Jeremiha Hunter intercepted Persa at the Iowa 38, but when Peters responded by picking off a deep pass near the end zone it changed everything. It was a bitter-sweet victory for Northwestern.

Notre Dame also upset then number 14 Utah, 28-3. The Utah Utes were blocked from executing their big offense and they were limited in yards and in scoring. It was the lowest performance of the Utes since their defeat to UNLV in 2007.

Arizona seems to be fading into the bottom of the BCS rankings and they were defeated last week by the USC Trojans. It seems a big virus was injected and the offense of Arizona tumbled and they lost, 24-21.
