Georgia rose one spot to No. 10 in the 2012 BCS standings thanks to the only team that has beaten the Bulldogs, South Carolina, falling in consecutive weeks to LSU and Florida. WIth Georgia moving up, there are still four SEC teams in the top 10, the most among all conferences.

Alabama and Florida hold down the top two spots for the second-straight week. The Crimson Tide had little trouble at Tennessee on Saturday, while Florida dispatched of the Gamecocks at home.

LSU is still in position to make a run for a BCS bowl, and even the title game, as the Tigers man the sixth position. They traveled to Texas A&M, and came back from a double-digit deficit to knock the Aggies down to No. 20 in the BCS standings. The Tigers' next game is a big one, as they host the Crimson Tide on Nov. 3.

Georgia has a chance to make some noise this weekend as they take on Florida. Gator fans are happy knowing they control their own destiny for the BCS championship. Andy Hutchins of Florida blog Alligator Army analyzed the latest release of the standings on Sunday

This much is clear: Florida isn't falling out of the BCS picture without a loss. The Gators stayed No. 2 behind Alabama in the BCS rankings released Sunday night, and both made up ground on their SEC rival and put distance on the rest of the field.

The Bulldogs can be the team to hand Florida that loss in Jacksonville on Saturday.
