College Football Rankings: BCS Evolution's Mock BCS Top 25

SB Nation's own BCS Evolution has published their weekly simulation of what BCS standings would look like if they were being released yet. 

ESPN's mock standings only dished out a top ten, but our boys worked up a complete top 25. Their findings suggest a slightly lower ranking for LSU, but otherwise agree with ESPN. Both, of course, disagree sharply with the college football polls.

Click through for explanations, because these guys certainly know more about the BCS than anybody besides the guy in charge of the BCS ha ha just kidding, nobody is in charge of the BCS. Check in with BCSE often, especially if your team actually has a shot at getting a BCS invite.
