With the release of the latest Harris Interactive Poll we are getting a glimpse into one of the components of the BCS standings, which come out on Sunday night.

The Oct. 14 Harris Interactive Poll (pdf) experienced the same shakeup the AP and Coaches poll did on Sunday, though Alabama and Oregon still remain in the top two spots. Boise State fell one spot to No. 23 after defeating Fresno State, 20-10.

Florida moved up three spots to No. 3 following a 31-17 victory over Vanderbilt. Kansas State and Notre Dame round out the top five.

South Carolina, the previous No. 3, fell four spots to No. 7 after a 23-21 loss to LSU, which moved up two spots to No. 6. But the Gamecocks weren't the biggest losers of the weekend. The West Virginia Mountaineers dropped 11 spots to No. 15 for their 49-14 loss to then unranked Texas Tech. The Red Raiders moved into the poll at No. 21.

Texas was humiliated by now No. 9 Oklahoma in the Red River Shootout, 63-21, and dropped from No. 15 to No. 25.

Here is the complete Harris Interactive Poll, which is one of two polls (the other is the Coaches Poll) that goes into determining the BCS rankings:
