A wild weekend of college football likely means the SEC West triumvirate of LSU, Alabama and Arkansas will hold the top three positions in the Week 13 BCS Rankings.

A wild and wacky weekend of college football, which frankly are the best kind of college football weekends, will lead to a significant shakeup in the Week 13 BCS Rankings.

The fun started Friday night, when heavily favored Oklahoma State, the No. 2 team in last week's BCS rankings, fell to Iowa State in Ames. In-state rival Oklahoma joined in the fun by losing late Saturday evening to Baylor, and Oregon lost to a team that is not even eligible to play in the postseason, falling to Lane Kiffin and his USC Trojans.

What does this mean for the Week 13 BCS rankings to be released Sunday evening? It means the SEC West is going to hold the top three positions, and that the national championship game is likely to be a SEC West matchup. I guess it only makes sense, given that the SEC has won the last five BCS title games.
