BCS Rankings: Virginia Tech Moves to No. 5 in Week 13 Standings

The Virginia Tech Hokies sit at No. 5 in the BCS rankings released Sunday, Nov. 20.

Tech is behind LSU, Alabama, Arkansas and Oklahoma State. However, there is a significant gap between the Hokies and Cowboys. Oklahoma State is .0566 ahead of Virginia Tech, while Tech is .0131 ahead of No. 6 Stanford.

While Tech is No. 4 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 5 in the Harris Interactive Poll, their computer numbers are not on par with other BCS teams. The Hokies came in at No. 7 in the composite computer rankings, behind LSU, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma.

The Hokies need to win out to have any chance of getting to the BCS National Championship Game. However, they will also need plenty of help. Tech would need LSU to beat Arkansas, Auburn to beat Alabama and Oklahoma to beat Oklahoma State to have any chance to move up into the Top 2. They might also need Notre Dame to beat Stanford to keep the Cardinal from jumping them.

For now, there's no point in worrying about Tech's strength of schedule and computer ranking. Unless Tech wins its next two games, it's probably not going to ANY BCS game, let alone the national championship.
