Alabama, Florida State Top First 2013 BCS Poll

Alabama Crimson Tide fans were not surprised to see their team top the initial 2013 BCS rankings, released Sunday evening. The big surprised was reserved for Oregon fans, who saw their Ducks in third place behind the Florida State Seminoles.

FSU dominated then-No. 3 Clemson on Saturday, beating the Tigers 52-14  in their own house, but was still ranked behind Alabama and Oregon in both the AP and coaches polls.

This surprise turn of events sets up not the Oregon-Alabama matchup PAC-12 fans have dreamed about, but a showdown of southern football powers in Pasadena’s Rose Bowl. A Florida State-Alabama showdown would also have as a major storyline freshman sensation Jameis Winston a Hueytown, Al. native who chose FSU over Alabama.

Of course, there’s plenty of football left to play, but at this point, Oregon has plenty of ground to make up if they want another shot at a BCS Championship against a team from the state of Alabama. You can find the remaining Alabama football schedule, as well as the schedules for all the other teams gunning for Alabama’s top spot.
