College Football Rankings, Week 11: TCU Remains At No. 3 In BCS Standings

The top four positions in the latest BCS standings remained the same, with Oregon, Auburn, TCU and Boise State winning this weekend. Oregon and Auburn control their destinies right now, but Auburn will need to win the SEC championship to get into the BCS Championship game. No. 3 TCU dominated the Utah Utes, 47-7, on Saturday and substantially increased their lead over the No. 4 Boise State Broncos.  TCU has a .926 BCS average to Boise State's .866 average.

Previously No. 5, Utah fell to No. 14 after losing to the TCU Horned Frogs, which might be surprising to many observers. The Utes were outclassed for the entire night and barely staved off a shutout. However, the Utes will have trouble playing in a bowl game on New Year's Day. The LSU Tigers, 8-1, took Utah's spot after defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide (who are the highest ranked two-loss team at No. 12).

Outside of LSU, the other big movers this week were the Stanford Cardinal (from No. 13 to No. 6) and the Oklahoma State Cowboys (from No. 17 to No. 10). 

The top 10 BCS teams:

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

College Football Rankings, Week 11: TCU Receives First Place Votes In USA Today Coaches Poll

The Oregon Ducks remained atop the USA Today Coaches Poll for a second week in a row and then saw a number of changes in the rest of the rankings, much like the AP Poll. The 10-0 TCU Horned Frogs moved up to No. 3 and received two first-place votes after defeating the Utah Utes, 47-7, on Saturday.

The Utah Utes moved all the way down to No. 15 and are now 8-1 this season. The LSU Tigers jumped from No. 11 to No. 6, while two-loss Alabama checked in at No. 12. Three new teams checked in at the back of the top 25: Central Florida, Florida and Texas A&M.

The 7-2 San Diego State Aztecs also received the second most points among teams outside the top 25 with 44. The Mountain West conference is showing a strong hand late in the season, and if Air Force can win out the rest of the regular season and capture a bowl victory, the Falcons could re-enter the top 25.

Here are the full results:

1. Oregon
2. Auburn
3. TCU
4. Boise State
5. Wisconsin
6. LSU
7. Ohio State
8. Nebraska
9. Stanford
10. Michigan State
11. Oklahoma State
12. Alabama
13. Iowa
