College Football Rankings, 14: Oregon Reigns Supreme In BlogPoll

The top two in SB Nation's latest BlogPoll stay the same, and as expected Boise State fell down to 11 for losing to Nevada last Friday. Arkansas was the biggest mover in the poll after they beat LSU as they moved up five spots to the seven spot this week. Utah moved up two spots to 21 after narrowing beating rival BYU, and then Oklahoma moved up to the nine spot after winning an exciting game over rival Oklahoma State which clinched the Big 12 South. Air Force is still getting a few votes in the polls, and looks to spend the rest of the season outside of the BlogPoll.

BCS Standings, Week 14: Oregon Drops To No. 2; Boise State Falls To No. 11

The Auburn Tigers moved to No. 1 in the latest BCS standings while the Oregon Ducks slid down to No. 2. The Tigers have a .0002 lead over the Ducks, and in the end both will still play in the BCS Championship game if they win their games on Saturday, Dec. 4. The TCU Horned Frogs stayed put at No. 3 and could jump up if either Auburn or Oregon loses. Oregon is the first team to move down in the standings this late in the season without having suffered a loss.

Boise State was the biggest loser of the week, falling from No. 4 to No. 11. Previously No. 5, the LSU Tigers dropped to No. 10 following their loss to Arkansas, who moved to No. 7. Arkansas could be headed to the Sugar Bowl if Auburn plays in the championship game.

Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan State each finished with an 11-1 record, but Wisconsin will play in the Rose Bowl because they are ranked highest in the BCS standings. The team's three rankings will likely not change next week in the final BCS standings.

Stanford moved to No. 4 and under NCAA rules will be automatically qualified for a BCS bowl if Oregon makes it to the BCS championship game.

The top 10 BCS teams:

10. LSU
9. Oklahoma
8. Michigan State
7. Arkansas
6. Ohio State
5. Wisconsin
4. Stanford
3. TCU
2. Oregon
1. Auburn


College Football Rankings, Week 14: Harris Interactive Poll Experiences Shake-Up

The latest Harris Interactive Poll experienced its own re-ordering in the top 25. Oregon and Auburn remain in the top two positions, but TCU moved to No. 3 after Boise State lost. The Broncos dropped to No. 10. Wisconsin, Stanford, Ohio State, Michigan Sate, Arkansas and Oklahoma fill in the other spots.

LSU, who lost to Arkansas, dropped to No. 11. Nevada improved four spots to No. 15 following its victory over Boise State. Alabama played Auburn close, but eventually fell, 28-27. The Crimson Tide is now ranked No. 18.

West Virginia and Northern Illinois entered the Harris Poll at 23rd and 24th. Mountain West conference teams Air Force (3 votes) and San Diego State (7 votes) made appearances with other teams just outside the top 25.

The Harris Poll counts for one-third in determining the latest BCS standings. In under four hours, the latest BCS rankings will be released. While there should be no surprises in the top two sports, several changes are expected.
