Week 13 of the 2013 NCAA football betting season is in the books, and today, we're going to be taking a look at each of the Top 25 teams in the BCS rankings and see how they did from an ATS perspective in this go around this past week.
(Results in parentheses represent SU Result-ATS Result)
1: Alabama (W-L vs. Chattanooga 49-0)
The Tide are ready to roll into the title game, and the opponents are falling left and right.
2: Florida State (W-W vs. Idaho 80-14)
QB Jameis Winston's off the field issues are the only thing plaguing FSU.
3: Ohio State (W-L vs. Indiana 42-14)
The Buckeyes are clearly third best now and are just waiting for someone else to drop.
4: Baylor (L-L vs. Oklahoma State 49-17)
The Bears' perfect season came to a close as soon as they had to run up against some big time competition. Now they'll be lucky just to be in the BCS.
5: Oregon (L-L vs. Arizona 42-16)
No one wants to win the Pac-12 North. This is the third straight week the lead has changed hands on this side.
6: Auburn (Bye)
The week of carnage might legitimately make it that Auburn controls its own destiny to play for all of the marbles.
7: Clemson (W-W vs. Citadel 52-6)
Don't let this one fool you; it was 42-0 Tigers at halftime.
8: Missouri (W-W vs. Ole Miss 24-10)
Just as Auburn controls its own destiny, so too might ultimately the Tigers. The gap is definitely shrinking with Baylor and Oregon out of the way.
9: Stanford (W-W vs. Cal 63-13)
And just like that, the Cardinal are back in the driver's seat to go to the Rose Bowl after dismissing lowly Cal.
10: Oklahoma State (W-W vs. Baylor 49-17)
There wasn't a more impressive time for a more impressive victory. Okie State is two wins away from the Fiesta Bowl at worst.
11: South Carolina (W-W vs. Coastal Carolina 70-10)
The Gamecocks are still hoping that Mizzou slips up to get into the SEC Championship Game.
12: Texas A&M (L-L vs. LSU 34-10)
QB Johnny Manziel will close out his collegiate career without a single win against LSU.
13: Michigan State (W-W vs. Northwestern 30-6)
The Spartans haven't been pretty, but they are on their way to the Big Ten Championship Game with a shot of taming Ohio State. Who knows? An FSU loss, and Sparty could still be in the title mix.
14: UCLA (L-L vs. Arizona State 38-33)
QB Brett Hundley rallied the troops from down 35-13 at halftime but could never take the lead against ASU.
15: Fresno State (W-W vs. New Mexico 69-28)
The Bulldogs beat up the Lobos, but they fell behind Northern Illinois in the chase for the non-AQ BCS bowl bid.
16: Northern Illinois (W-W vs. Toledo 35-17)
The Huskies have earned their right to the BCS as far as we can tell. They're ranked third in Jeff Sagarin's computer poll.
17: Arizona State (W-W vs. UCLA 38-33)
Heck, ASU is going to host the Pac-12 title game now if it can beat Arizona this week.
18: UCF (W-W vs. Rutgers 41-17)
The Knights haven't had many easy victories of late, but they got one against Rutgers on Thursday night.
19: Wisconsin (W-L vs. Minnesota 20-7)
It was the first ATS defeat of the season for the Badgers, but at least they got to keep Paul Bunyan's Axe.
20: Oklahoma (W-W vs. Kansas State 41-31)
QB Trevor Knight put up big offensive numbers for the first time in his career against K-State.
21: Louisville (W-L vs. Memphis 24-17)
The Cardinals almost blew a three-score lead for the second time this season at home.
22: LSU (W-W vs. Texas A&M 34-10)
The Bayou Bengals should be sitting pretty for the Cotton Bowl after dismissing Texas A&M, and the at large bid to the BCS isn't out of the question either.
23: USC (W-L vs. Colorado 47-29)
It wasn't a cover, but it was another feather in Head Coach Ed Orgeron's hat to try to keep the permanent USC job.
24: Ole Miss (L-L vs. Missouri 24-10)
The Rebels have four losses this year, each of which have come against teams that were at some point ranked in the Top 10 in the land.
25: Minnesota (L-W vs. Wisconsin 20-7)
That's 11 straight years that Paul Bunyan's Axe has stayed in Madison, but it was a valiant effort by the Gophers.
