Teams ranked in the Top 14 of the BCS Standings are eligible for BCS bowls. No guarantees, but without the ranking, a top-tier bowl is out of the question.

Arkansas (8-2) will be in the conversation. The Razorbacks are No. 13 in the latest standings and have won four consecutive games.

The BCS rank matches where the team is slotted in the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Polls. Arkansas joins No. 2 Auburn, No. 5 LSU, No. 11 Alabama, No. 17 South Carolina and No. 21 Mississippi State in the BCS Top 25.

Arkansas faces Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss. on Saturday. A game with LSU looms on Nov. 27 in Little Rock.
