BCS Rankings, Week 11: Oregon, Auburn Ahead Of The Pack

The Oregon Ducks remained at No. 1 in the fourth BCS rankings of the year, but the gap between the Ducks and Auburn Tigers is closing rapidly. A quality win by TCU hurt the Ducks, bumping Oregon down in the computer rankings as TCU’s schedule strengthened. The gap between Oregon and Auburn is now just .0027 points.

The Ducks and Tigers are firmly planted in the driver's seat as we head toward the BCS National Championship. The gap between second and third place this week stands at just under four hundredths of a point, a healthy margin by BCS standards. TCU sits at No. 3, six hundredths of a point clear of No. 4 Boise State. LSU rounds out the top 5 after a three-point win over the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Around the rest of the Pac-10, Stanford checked in at No. 7, six spots better than last week after a win over former No. 15 Arizona. The Wildcats fell three spots with the loss and came in at No. 18. Oregon, Stanford and Arizona are the only ranked teams again this week.

College Football Rankings, Week 11: Boise State Has A Legitimate Gripe

I’m usually not one to defend Boise State and the gripes about teams leapfrogging the Broncos in the polls. Today, however, they have a legitimate argument about the AP Poll and the teams that jumped them. TCU being ranked above BSU is fine. The Horned Frogs picked up a quality win this weekend, downing the former top 5 Utah Utes. Auburn, however, beat FCS Chattanooga and had no business jumping Boise State in the AP top 25 this week.

The Broncos, often handcuffed by the poor strength of schedule that comes with playing in the WAC, did pick up a quality win. Against Hawaii — a team that was the last team out in last week’s AP top 25 — Boise State looked flat dominant. The Broncos controlled every aspect of the game, cruising to a 42-7 victory.

Why punish Boise State this week, when they did pick up a quality win? Why move Auburn ahead of Boise on the heels of a late-season cupcake game against an FCS team? It’s a foregone conclusion that if Auburn keeps winning they’ll pass BSU up, but it shouldn’t have come this week.

College Football Rankings, Week 11: Oregon Tops AP Poll, Stanford At No. 7

The Oregon Ducks remained at No. 1 in the AP Poll this morning, just as they did in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Oregon, 9-0 on the year, topped the Washington Huskies yesterday at Autzen Stadium, 53-16. The Ducks are atop the AP Top 25 for the fourth straight week

After being passed up by TCU in the Coaches Poll, Boise State was jumped by both TCU and Auburn in the AP Poll today. The Broncos fell to No. 4, while Auburn and TCU both moved up one spot to No. 2 and No. 3 respectively. The Broncos can’t catch a break in the polls as the season progress, stymied by a WAC schedule that’s less than difficult.

LSU rounded out the top 5, moving up seven spots to No. 5 with a win over Alabama. Michigan State was a big mover in the AP Poll, as they were in the Coaches Poll, moving up six spots to No. 10. Wisconsin, Nebraska and Ohio State all remained in the top 10 this week, as well.

Around the Pac-10, Stanford moved-up three spots to No. 7 after a convincing win over the Arizona Wildcats last night. The Wildcats fell five spots to No. 18 with the loss. USC, after a wild finish against the Arizona State Sun Devils, were the last team out, checking in at No. 26 and just missing a spot in the top 25.

The Ducks should be No. 1 in tonight’s BCS rankings after downing the Huskies. Last week’s No. 2, Auburn, defeated cupcake Chattanooga in a game that shouldn’t be enough to unseat Oregon. Stanford, with another quality win, should continue to move up and are, perhaps, the best one-loss team in the country right now.
