College Football BCS Rankings v. Car Insurance Rates (Infographic, Part 2) Answer Financial® Inc., one of the largest auto and home insurance agencies in the U.S., compares car insurance rates for the top college football towns.

ENCINO, Calif., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week we announced our own ranking of the Associated Press (AP) Top 25 Poll of college football teams by the price these college towns pay for car insurance. Now that the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) standings have been released, Answer Financial Inc. is following up to check the score on these top-ranked teams and their estimated insurance rates.*

With five undefeated teams leading the pack and gearing up for Saturday home games, things are looking good for these Bowl Championship contenders. Interesting to note is that three of these teams were also in our top five for lowest car insurance rates: the Missouri Tigers, the Oregon Ducks and the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Rounding out the top five for lowest car insurance are the Clemson Tigers and the Oregon State Beavers, but they're ranked 9th and 25th respectively when it comes to the BCS. These teams may be long shots for the Bowl Championship, but it's "Game on!" for the lead among our lowest insurance rates.

Alabama is 7-0 and holding strong as the number one ranked NCAA football team, but the Crimson Tide's perfect season and vaunted defense hasn't helped them when it comes to car insurance rates, where they currently come in 8th place on our list of lowest car insurance premiums.

Are the Florida State Seminoles the team that can finally supplant the Tide from the #1 spot? Maybe in terms of football, but when it comes to car insurance premiums, the Seminoles take our 21st spot. Florida in general did not fare well in our rankings as the UCF Knights and the Miami Hurricanes also ranked in our bottom five.
