BCS Rankings: Auburn Jumps Oregon to No. 1 Slot

| by

This may come as a shocker to Oregon fans, who thought their team would assume the top slot in the BCS standings after they clobbered UCLA Thursday and Missouri beat No. 1 Oklahoma Saturday night. But nothing is ever predictable or obvious in BCS land.

Auburn, which beat an undefeated LSU team at home on Saturday, climbed over the Ducks into the number one spot. Oregon stayed put at No. 2. Meanwhile, Boise State and TCU are still on the outside looking in. Here is how the new rankings look:
