Auburn jumps to BCS #1 spot

AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA) - Auburn (12-0) overtook Oregon (11-0) as No. 1 in the penultimate BCS standings following its 28-27 come-from-behind Iron Bowl win on Saturday. Despite the flip in order, the teams are still slated to play each other for the national championship Jan. 10.

To stay on track, Oregon must beat Oregon State in the Civil War this week, and Auburn needs to top South Carolina in the SEC Championship Game.

TCU (12-0), which comes in at 3rd, had been losing ground to Boise State the past two weeks but solidified their chances at an automatic BCS bid after Boise lost to Nevada in overtime on Friday.

The Horned Frogs finished their second straight unbeaten regular season Saturday and look on track to go to the Rose Bowl, which is required to take the top team from a non-automatic qualifying conference. Boise State dropped to No. 11 and Nevada reached No. 17.

Stanford and Wisconsin round out the top five, while Alabama falls to No. 16.
