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.
