College Football Rankings, Week 11: TCU Defeats Utah; Air Force Gains Commander-In-Chief Trophy And Bowl Eligibility

There will be some movement in both the Top 25 polls and the BCS standings. The most notable changes will surround Utah and Alabama. The Utah Utes were manhandled by the BCS No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs, 47-7. Utah, BCS No. 5, failed to put points on the board until the fourth quarter, when Jordan Wynn and Matt Asiata hooked up for a 19-yard touchdown. BCS No. 6 Alabama lost to No. 10 LSU because the Tigers scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to overcome an 11-point deficit. Nebraska, BCS No. 7, defeated Iowa State in overtime by intercepting a fake pass on an extra point attempt. Oregon and Auburn, the top two teams, won their games against Washington and Chattanooga and should remain atop the standings.

The Air Force Falcons brought the Commander-In-Chief Trophy back to the Academy for the first time since 2002 with a 42-22 victory over the Army Black Knights. The Falcons are now 6-4 on the season. While that will not be enough to re-enter the Top 25 polls, the Falcons are now bowl eligible. The most likely destinations, the Denver Post reports, are either the Armed Forces Bowl or the Independence Bowl. In the Armed Forces Bowl, the Falcons would potentially face a Conference USA team, while an Atlantic Coast Conference team would likely be the opponent in the Independence Bowl.
