NFP Top 25

Week 13 of the college football season is officially in the books, and there’s little doubt as to which two teams are the best in the nation.

Fans of Oklahoma State, Stanford and Virginia Tech may still be clamoring for a shot at LSU, but the BCS standings will have Alabama slotted at No. 2 when the new rankings are released this evening. And the Crimson Tide are in the clubhouse, waiting to see if LSU will take care of business in the SEC Championship game.

Let’s take a look at how the National Football Post stacks up the Top 25 teams in the nation after the thirteenth week of the year.

And be sure to check back with the NFP for the newest BCS standings. In addition, my latest Bowl Projections will be posted on the site Monday.
